The VisionTek XTasy GeForce4 Ti 4400
Compelling performance without the price tag

Croteam's Serious Sam, The Second Encounter is an OpenGL or DirectX based game title with many leading edge graphics effects and high resolution textures.  We ran our tests in OpenGL mode.

Serious Sam and Novalogic's Comanche 4
How does VisionTek's GeForce4 Ti4400 stand up?


As you can see, the ATi Radeon 8500 significantly closes that gap here between itself and the NVIDIA Ti 4400 and Ti 4600 based cards, in this test.  We're not exactly sure why the Radeon 8500 does so much better in this test but clearly, even though OpenGL titles have not been ATi's strong suit until recently, the field is much tighter in this horse race.  Here we see a 7% advantage at 1280X1024 and 18% advantage at 1024X768 for the VisionTek GeForce4 Ti 4400, versus the Radeon 8500.  Additionally, the Ti 4400 card is within 8% of its big brother Ti 4600 card. 

Novalogic's Comanche 4 Benchmark
Direct 3D Testing on a leading edge Flight Sim

Here's a benchmark that we have been waiting for here in the HotHardware Labs for a long time.  Although it is a bit of a "CPU hog", Novalogic's Comanche 4 Benchmark Demo is one of the better Direct 3D benchmarks (besides the esteemed MadOnion's 3DMark) we have seen in a long time.

We ran two resolutions, as you can see in this graph, 1280X1024 and 1600X1200, both in 32 bit color with maximum detail.  Even with a 2.2GHz Pentium 4 Northwood driving the polygons in this test, the variances between the two GeForce4 cards, are minimal.  If you are a fan of this game engine, you might as well save a few pennies and go with a Ti4400 card like the VisitonTek XTasy GeForce4 Ti4400.  It will run nearly as fast as a Ti4600 based card with this great looking Chopper Sim... and then of course, you can always over-clock it.
