Gainward Ultra/650XP Golden Sample

When it comes to consumer performance graphics cards Nvidia pretty much lead the way with their GeForce4 range of cards. Gainward not content to just churn out cutting edge graphics cards have taken the Nvidia design a step further and turned it into bleeding edge. How they do that is simple, they use GPU's and memory chips which have been tested to clock faster than the Nvidia specification. In Gainwards words they use "Golden samples". To put it another way, their cards come with a guaranteed overclock. On a like for like basis, straight out the box, the Gainward cards should out perform their competitors.

There are three differently clocked GPU GF4 cards in Gainwards "Golden Sample" range. The fastest being the Ti4600, (Ultra 750 XP), followed by the Ti4400, (Ultra 700XP), and lastly, the Ti4200, (Ultra 650XP). In essence, the only real difference between all three cards is the clocked speeds of the GPU and memory and the VIVO/Dual monitor capabilities.
