Based on nVidia's chip we already know that the G4Ti4600-VTD is going to be damn fast, but how does MSI separate itself from the rest?

Benchmarks: Aquamark 2.3

AquaMark 2.3 Source: Massive

AquaMark is another DirectX 8 benchmark. Using vertex shaders, any card that is DirectX8 compatible will not just have a huge speed boost, the image will also look better. Default test has 24 MB worth of textures.

AquaMark 1024x768
Video Card FPS Ranking
1. Radeon 8500 50
2. Gainward GF4 Ti4600 66.6
3. MSI GF4 Ti4600 67.1
4. MSI GF4 Ti4600 oc'ed 72.4

At stock speeds, the MSI is slightly faster then the Gainward thanks mainly due to the fact that it's clocked higher. When it's overclocked it has absolutely no competition.

AquaMark 1280x1024
Video Card FPS Ranking
1. Radeon 8500 39.7
2. Gainward GF4 Ti4600 44.6
3. MSI GF4 Ti4600 44.9
4. MSI GF4 Ti4600 oc'ed 50.6

AquaMark 1600x1200
Video Card FPS Ranking
1. Radeon 8500 28.6
2. Gainward GF4 Ti4600 32.2
3. MSI GF4 Ti4600 33.9
4. MSI GF4 Ti4600 oc'ed 37.3

When the resolution is turned up to 1600x1200 we see even the Ti4600 come down to Earth. Overclocking does boost performance quite a bit but we still seem CPU limited.
