nicely written review but...

there's one big flaw, just make the math...

you have a 187 mhz cpu overclock(that's like a 1800+->2100+ so an enormous increase) giving you 730 points increase...
and a 35 mhz gpu/40mhz ram OC gets you 510 points! so for a minor graficcard overclock you get 510 points...

also your comparison table is not perfected, you need to compare the 11*133/gpu-non-OC to the 11*133/gpu-oc, and the 11*150/gpu-non-oc to the 11*150 gpu-oc...



totally gpu dominated.... and that's not what einstein says...

when using lower CPU speed, the impact of change in CPU is higher then GPU
when pushing to the max (+2ghz) the difference becomes smaller and eventually only a higher GPU will give you higher increases
but when using a "slower" CPU, any increase will show "dramatical" improvement


Had the same experience with a Duron 700, clocking the Duron to 1ghz gave a much higher increase then upping the Ti500 to the max

MadShrimps Do Video:
You be mad too if people were constantly cleaning out your poop line before they boiled you ( little shrimp humor there ), but in between all that, the fellas managed to get a GeForce4 Ti4200 review done. Here’s a direct quote:


....the TI 4200 is the best budget card ever seen. Aopen can make graphic cards, and tough they aren't the fastest and don't have an insane amount of features, they give the performance that you expect of any TI 4200 card

Don’t ask me…I just quote it, not write it.

Mad Shrimps an interesting name for a website shares his thoughts on the AOpen GeForce 4 Ti4200 video card. Does AOpen have a winner? Or is just another product tossed into the mixing pot of video cards? Here are some words from Einstein, the author:
