eVGA Personal Cinema Review - Page 7 of 8

PERFORMANCE

While the focus of the card is strictly on multimedia capabilities, the GeForce4 MX 440 core is still quite capable of playing the latest games, albeit without any fancy features. For those interested in performance, I recommend checking out my GeForce4 MX Experiences article here, where the performance capabilities of the GF4 MX 440 core are thoroughly examined. However, Iíve included a couple benchmarks with the newer 8X capable core. I should point out that my motherboard doesnít support the new AGP8X standard.

SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS

  • AMD Athlon XP 1600+ @ 1.4GHz
  • MSI K7T Pro2-RU
  • PC2100 DDR SDRAM - (2) 256MB DIMMs - 512MB Total
  • Quantum LS 20GB 7200RPM ATA-100 Hard Disk Drive  
  • eVGA Personal Cinema - GeForce4 MX 440 with AGP 8X - 275MHz/512MHz
  • NVIDIA Detonator XP Driver Version 43.03
  • 32-Bit Color / Sound Disabled / Vsync Disabled / 85Hz Refresh Rate
  • Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 1 / DirectX 9.0a

SOFTWARE SPECIFICATIONS

  • FutureMark 3DMark2001SE
  • id's Quake III: Arena V1.32 - Demo FOUR

MadOnion's 3DMark2001 SE is the defacto synthetic DirectX 8 benchmark and allows users can compare their results with the results from other users. The second edition (SE) of 3DMark2001 added new features including DXTC1 texture compression and an advanced pixel shader test.

Nothing new or varied to write about as it the typical scores for a GeForce4 MX440 based system.

Quake III. The FPS benchmark that's been with us since the TNT2. Remember trying to get 60 fps back in those days?

Even a low-end multimedia card can stretch its legs in Q3A, and playing with FSAA extremely smooth even at 1024x768. My, how far we have come.
