The GeForce 4 Ti 4600 isnít a revolution but does provide ferocious graphics power. It is clearly the ultimate state of the art 3D graphics adapter available today on the market. Neither the ATI Radeon 8500 nor the GeForce 3 Ti 500 can measure up to the GeForce 4 Ti 4600. Overall this brand new GPU provides a dramatic performance increase of 20-30% over the GeForce 3 Ti 500. With so much power, the best of class 3D graphics adapter lets you enjoy a demoniac framerate when using 2x or Quicunx anti aliasing modes in 1024*768 or higher resolutions ensuring fluid gameplay.  

With higher frequencies, more memory, new hardware technologies and smart algorithm tweaking combined to the brand new nView technology NVIDIA confirms its leadership. Being displayed at the same price as its predecessor the GeForce 4 Ti 4600 remains expensive. All in all the GeForce 4 Ti 4600 is clearly a good buy especially when you consider the performance boost and the new features it offers. However the lack of support from renowned manufacturers like Hercules can, in a way, limit the adoption of the GeForce 4 Ti 4600.
