3x GeForce4 Ti from Inno3D in the test: Cheaper range of models

Dungeon victories

CPU limitation par excellence is a trademark at Dungeon Siege. The fact that the game is also a so-called low-FPS game and can still be played very well at 30 frames per second made us try all the FSAA options on it.

FSAA at it's best: 4xS quality with a 15-30% loss of performance. The GeForce3 doesn't have to hide either!

Always Hardly any drops in 2xFSAA and an acceptable 43% for the outstanding 4xS quality and still absolutely problem-free and unrestricted gaming fun. The lossesof the more powerful Ti 4400 are significantly lower.

With the Ti 4400 you still have the free choice of the FSAA mode,While in the GeForce3 the jerking is more the rule than the exception in the highest levels and you should perhaps look at the visual differences with the Ti 4200 cards and then see whether you want to accept the reduced frame rate.

Frugal natures use more than 2xFSAA even in 1600x1200, but the gaming experience is really pleasant so no more. Here, too, there is still room for improvement in which the next-generation chips and cards could advance. A note: The 2x and 3xFSAA modes in the resolutions 1152 and 1280 (which are also not officially supported by Dungeon Siege!) Had distortions on the right edge of the screen, which also occurred with the older 28.32 drivers. However, since the performance in relation to the 28.32 was constant and we only have GeForce cards in the field at the moment (this bug does not affect the relation of the cards), we decided to include the results in the test anyway. The 1600 modes and the 4x modes work correctly.
