Albatron Ti4680P TurboTue, Mar 04, 2003 - 9:00 AM
This is the Albatron 128mb Ti4680P Turbo–but what the heck is a Ti4680? With the addition of 8x AGP, someone in a power position at nVidia thought the geforce 4 line of cards should be renamed. I personally believe nVidia confused people instead of properly marketing their new graphics card line. Below is a chart that shows the old 4x AGP names next to their new 8x AGP names. Why they didn’t just name the new series of cards the Ti4280, 4480, 4680 is beyond me.

In December, we had the chance to take a look at the highly talked about Albatron Ti4200P Turbo video card which recieved a perfect 5 score on our rating system and overclocked to be the fastest Ti4200 video card we have ever seen. When we had the chance to take the Albatron Ti4680P Turbo for a test drive we jumped at the offer. The company Albatron is a relatively new name, but for those who crave high performance products we hope by now that Albatron is a common name to you.
For this review, we will pair off the Albatron Ti4200P Turbo versus the Albatron Ti4680P Turbo and see what kind of differences can be observed with 8x AGP. We will also toss an 8x AGP MSI Ti4200 card into the mix so you can also see the performance differences between a "turbo" card and a standard 8x AGP card.
Besides this card Albatron currently offers more than 45 video cards all featuring Nvidia chipsets. They are still working on developing their new Nvidia FX design, which will be out in the first quarter of 2003.
