    Visiontek Xtasy GeForce4 Ti4600

    Bottom Line: The card is fast, no doubt about it, but it may not exactly be cost worthy. It depends on exactly what features you need and if you want bragging rights or not.

    Introduction

    Visiontek once again is the first GeForce4 card onto the shelves. Visiontek has been dominating the video card market recently, and seems to be only getting better for them as other companies have dropped out of the NVIDIA graphic card market lately. This is allowing Visiontek to take more and more of the market, looks like their decision to bring the video card line out of just OEM and into retail was a smart choice. Another smart decision in my opinion was their choice of names for their cards this time around with the GeForce4 line. In the previous generation, the GeForce3 Titanium series, Visiontek had names like the Visiontek Xtasy 6964…try and guess which card that is (it's the GeForce3 Ti500 by the way). While they did keep their Xtasy line in-tact, the card's name is now just the chip from NVIDIA that they are using. This brings us to the beginning of our review.

    Visiontek's first GeForce4 (actual NV25 technology) to be released is the Ti4600 (named the Visiontek Xtasy Ti4600 appropriately), which is in fact the top of the line in graphics technology currently. We will be looking at this card today. Aside from the Ti4600, Visiontek will also have the Ti4400 and Ti4200. We got their Ti4400 card just in time to include it in our benchmarks, so we do have the numbers for the card in this review. Let's now take a look at the Ti4600's specs:
