An aftermarket modification for the cost concious overclocker perhaps but outside the remit of this review sadly. Firstly we have dual independant MHz RAMDAC’s that can operate twin displays independently at high resolution with independents resolutions, colour depths and refresh rates on each display. As you can see from the pictures, Abit has outfitted the card with a very nice looking heatsink and fan. The card ships in a Retail package which includes: Its drivers with the company’s own settings are now too old, and stability is not brilliant any more. These cards are cheap and as long as you don’t expect too much from them, they’ll server you well. Performance I’ll take a look at card performance from a few angles.

In closing, I’d like to advise you to read also other reviews of GeForce3 based video cards. I use the Valley of the Jaguar demo at the three test resolutions with the Quality graphics preference setting. The image completely covers the TV screen so that it’s not necessary to make any adjustments. The Retail package contains: Firstly we have dual independant MHz RAMDAC’s that can operate twin displays independently at high resolution with independents resolutions, colour depths and refresh rates on each display.

Stable overclocks are obviously preferable to absolute on the limit clocks. The TV-Out however was good quality and I had no problems watching a couple of my Region 1 disks that don’t work on my standalone player, using this card.


Saving for a full DX8 part is well worth it if you ask this md. Overall Conclusion These cards are definitely aimed at the budget concious user, much like the GeForce2 Titanium cards were not so long ago. As with recent Hexus reviews, I’ll combine as much information as is possible onto the graphs so that you get all the information without trawling through a mountain of pictures.

The GeForce4 MX is a more expensive solution, first of all, because of the memory 3. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Ff4.

Abit Siluro MX Review

We’ve seen that the performance of the card isn’t exactly stellar. This card follows the reference design and doesn’t differ from the Prolink one: Our objective is deeper as apart from separate reviews we have the 3Digest where not just one card but a certain trademark gets an overview.

This benchmark loads an accelerator with geometry, large textures and huge effects. The TV-out is realized without the help of an external video processor. And the TV-out quality is excellent: NV17 is slower than NV20 yet in marketing terms, it’s being promoted as being ‘better’ simply due to the GPU brand name being 1 unit more than GeForce3. To reiterate, the core is slower than NV20 GeForce3 despite the brand name suggesting otherwise.

Write a comment below.

However given the price point and the target markets of the card, can we really expect stellar performance in everything? Overclocking the CPU would give a better result than increasing card clocks here.

Again the card has neither the second Abbit connector nor DVI, that is why the nView technology will let only to make several virtual desktops. Dropping the graphics quality down would have an appreciable difference on performance but it’s nice to enable what rendering features you can. The cooler’s design is ordinary. The measly increase when overclocked is due to the CPU being made to do all the work that the card cannot.


Abit have done a good job with the cooling considering the price point with only memory heatsinks being a glaring omission. Before we dive into the graphs, a quick look at the test setup.

Apart from hardware monitoring functions the program allows overclocking the card: At the lower resolutions, the GeForce4 MX holds its own.

Abit Siluro MX440 Review

What was the best tech product of ? The card though gf seats for it. Prolink equipped the card with a faster than required memory of 4ns Samsung the rated frequency of which is MHz.

Its mainstream cards had nothing particular. As far as raw processing power goes, in this incarnation in MX form, the GPU pushes these numbers. ABIT refused traditional cardboard bags and returned to usual Retail packages:
