Prolink PixelView GeForce4 MX440-8X Review
Prolink PixelView GeForce4 MX440-8X Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Considering the number of times I've heard it, AGP 8X is certainly the new catch phrase when it comes to motherboards and videocards these days.

The final word

Even though the Prolink PixelView GeForce4 MX440-8X is a DirectX 7 part it's still pretty damn fast, at least that's what the benchmarks seem to point towards.

Still, if you're contemplating purchasing a new videocard, I would have to suggest that you stay away from older generation cards which are not at least DirectX 8 compliant. There are just too many games coming out that take advantage of vertex and pixel shaders which is something all GeForce4 MX's don't have.

With a street price of just under $200 CDN ($145 US) the Prolink PixelView GeForce4 MX440-8X is moderately priced, but it does come with a ton of features; including DVI, VIVO capabilities and a decent software bundle.

Factory overclocked at 300MHz/550MHz means the Prolink GeForce4 MX440-8X will probably be the fastest stock MX440-8X out there, and it was good to see that there was still a lot of head room - with the card maxing out at 387MHz/613MHz. Not bad indeed!

Overall, the Prolink PixelView GeForce4 MX440-8X is a good videocard. If we reviewed it maybe six months ago it would have won an award. Unfortunately though, if you're going to be purchasing a new videocard now, you really should get something that is DirectX 8 compliant so you have a videocard that's a bit more future proof. That is, if you can afford the extra investment.
