eVGA e-GeForce4 Ti 4600 Review
By: Jonathan Martini - June 11, 2002

Retail Packaging

While I've yet to see eVGA's retail package available here in Canada, the retail box is attractive. The size and artwork grab your attention, but it's the attention to detail that interested me the most.

The graphics card is well protected inside the box and doesn't shift around during shipment.

About two feet of s-video cable are included as well as a Y adapter which allows output in s-video or composite modes. This will save a trip to the local electronics store for those lacking s-video input.

The contents of eVGA's e-GeForce4 Ti 4600 package consist of the following items:

  • Driver/Installation CD
  • NVIDIA Tech Demo CD
  • PowerDVD XP 4.0
  • Power Director 2.0 SE
  • Registration Card
  • Warranty Information
  • Installation Manual
  • eVGA Case Badges

eVGA also includes a feature that's intended to protect the consumer from fraud as both the box and the graphics card contain unique identification numbers. If the numbers don't match, then the product may have been tampered with.

Another item that caught my eye are the stickers located at both ends of the box. They provide contact information should problems arise with the graphics card.

VIVO Capabilities

Shortly after the initial batch of eVGA GeForce4 Ti 4600's shipped, a few customers noticed that the TV-out chip was Philips model SAA7108E which supports decoding and encoding. I'm not sure if eVGA was aware of this feature, but they announced that all owners of the eVGA GeForce4 Ti series of graphics cards would be receiving a free upgrade which included a VIVO capable cable, a BIOS update disk, and Power Director software.

Iíve only run across two other GeForce4 Ti 4600 based graphics cards capable of VIVO and those were Gainward's Ti 4600 Golden Sample and MSI's G4Ti4600-VTD.
