Making Themselves Heard: 11 GeForce4 Ti4400 and Ti4600 Cards

The Cards

ABIT Siluro GeForce Ti4400

This model is a first for the Taiwanese company ABIT, in that it is the first time a solution based on a new, recently introduced chip is being offered. In the past, ABIT would only pick up a chip after it had been on the market for a few months. For this review, ABIT sent us a Ti4400 board, which woos the buyer with its elegant looks. Very promising silver heatsinks cover the memory and the GPU, while the board itself is covered in a black finish.

Memory Coolers on the backside

The card's feature list continues this good impression. ABIT bundles it with a DVI-VGA adapter for use with a second analog monitor. Two 2m video cables are also included, one for composite and one for S-Video, so hooking up a TV or VCR to the card's TV-output should pose no problem. A manual takes you through the installation routine. The software bundle is a little slimmer, though. It consists only of a software DVD player based on InterVideo's WinDVD. The ABIT Ti4400 also scored points for its fan, which was the quietest in the field.
