Benchmarks: QIII Arena with AA and Conclusion

Quake III Arena

Source: ID Software

Quake III Arena is a First Person Shooter (FPS) that revolutionized gaming as we know it. Using multiple light sources and having graphics textures that can fill videocards, even after 3 years it's still able to bring a cutting edge system to its knees.

Quake III Arena MAX 1024x768 demo001
Video Card FPS Ranking
1. Albatron GeForce4 Ti4600 2x AA 190.7
3. Albatron GeForce4 Ti4600 QC AA 189.9
5. Albatron GeForce4 Ti4600 4x AA 105.6

Quake III Arena MAX 1600x1200 demo001
Video Card FPS Ranking
1. Albatron GeForce4 Ti4600 2x AA 68.3
3. Albatron GeForce4 Ti4600 QC AA 59.7
5. Albatron GeForce4 Ti4600 4x AA 39.9

1024x768 is playable but 1600x1200 is out of reach for the Ti4600.

Conclusions:

The Albatron GeForce4 Ti4600 is a fast videocard, that's a given when you're dealing with a GeForce4 Ti.

What we were most pleased about was the low price tag. At $490 CDN ($305 US) the Albatron card is one of the least expensive Ti4600 video cards around!

Case modders will love the card and its awesome looking blue PCB.

As mentioned above, the performance of the Albatron Ti4600 was excellent, there isn't a single game the card can't handle. It's quite interesting to see in general, overclocking doesn't really produce any noticeable performance gains unlike older generation cards.

Even with an AthlonXP 2000+ we're CPU limited! It's pretty easy for the Albatron Ti4600 to play at 1600x1200 in almost every game.

It would have been nice to have two DVI ports on the videocard so users can take advantage of two DVI based LCD monitors. All I can suggest to Albatron is, please bundle a DVI to Analog converter to allow for two analog monitors. It's the little things that count!

If you're looking for a high performance videocard, give the Albatron GeForce4 Ti4600 a try. You'll like what you see!
