    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.

    In The Box

    As stated in the box, in the box you will find this:

    • GeForce4 Ti 4600 Graphics Accelerator
    • Installation Guide
    • Installation CD
    • Install Guide .pdf
    • Demos
    • Adobe Acrobat Reader
    • NVIDIA Unified Driver Architecture
    • Cyberlink PowerDVD
    • Cyberlink PowerDirector

    The on thing that it does not mention is that you will also get a VIVO (Video-In/Video-Out) cable. Right now when you buy the card it shouldn't be in the box because Visiontek did not want to wait for the cable to be completed, but you will get it if you do purchase the card. We got a prototype version of the cable:

    The VIVO cable allows you to not only output your video onto something like a TV, but also input your video from any kind of S-Video device. This means that the Ti4600 from Visiontek is essentially a video capture device at the same time. We'll get more into this though in the board overview section of the review.

    As Visiontek has done in the past, they pretty much give you the barebones in order to pass on savings to the consumer. They include a quick installation guide on paper, but there is a more detailed guide and video on the CD that is included. They have also bundled Cyberlink's PowerDVD and PowerDirector, but no games. PowerDVD is obviously a DVD player while PowerDirector is a video editing tool since the card does do video capturing.
