It's well known that any videocard based
on the GeForce4 Ti4200 GPU is going to offer one hell of a value, and Albatron's
GeForce4 TI4200 Turbo is probably one of the fastest ones we've tested.
It's nice to see a manufacturer so confident in their
products that they can claim their Ti4200's will perform like a Ti4600. Goes to
show a lot about quality and this card didn't disappoint.
With a retail price of $240 CDN ($170 US) the Albatron
GeForce4 Ti4200P Turbo is one of the more expensive Ti4200's out there and if
you don't plan to overclock then you might want to look for something more
conservative (a Ford instead of a Ferrari). If you want a killer budget
videocard with excellent performance then you'll be quite happy with the
Albatron I think.
With that nice Blue PCB and a cool copper GPU heatsink,
the Albatron GeForce4 Ti4200P Turbo is one of the better looking videocards out
there - great for case moding perhaps. Performance of the card was excellent and
if you do find it too slow, the Albatron
GeForce4 Ti4200P Turbo is also up to the overclocking game from what we saw.
The test sample hit 309/693 with ease.
We would have liked to have seen dual DVI's (I complain
about this every time) but you can't win them all. Then again, there isn't much
else this card lacks in any capacity.
