By now, unless you have been huddled up in a cave somewhere, you have heard of the graphically impressive Max Payne action thriller title from Remedy.  We decided to use the VGA Demo mod from http://www.3dcenter.de for this test.  Later we?ll fire up Novalogic?s Comanche 4 demo,  to produce some additional DirectX 8.1 benchmarks.

In both of these tests, it is quite apparent that the Ti 4200 and the Ti 4600 are equally capable of playing DirectX-based games, at least for 1024x768 and 1280x1024 resolutions. Where we do notice the difference is when we get to 1600x1200. At this resolution, the higher core and memory speeds, plus the extra 64Mb on the GF4 Ti 4600 really come into play.

For DirectX benchmarking, we also used  MadOnion?s 3D Mark 2001SE, and ran all 21 tests to really put this card to the test. We then compared it to its big brother, the GF4 Ti 4600, and then to a Radeon 8500LE, which retails for roughly the same price.

What we see here is that the power of the G4 GPU is enough to easily overpower the Radeon. It falls behind the 4600, which, of course, is expected, since it?s core and memory are clocked lower.

Anti-Aliasing Tests:

When we turn on Anti-Aliasing, the GF4 Ti 4200 still has more than enough power for the Radeon to contend with. However, at higher resolutions with 2 and 4X AA enabled in 3DMark 2001SE, the Ti 4200 and Radeon 8500 drop out and can?t run in that mode.. Where we did get scores, we noticed both cards really started to drop off of the Ti 4600?s pace.
