MX440 Shootout ReviewBosco - September 19, 2002
3dmark2001, Comanche 4 and Quake.
Scores are close but as you can see the MSI just edged out the Abit, with the MSI taking 2 out of 3 tests.
Once again MSI wins, it beat out the Abit 2 out of 3 tests. Drivers locked out on 4XAA tests on the AOpen and Asus.
Asus took this test but not by much. None of the cards would run the test with AAX4 turned on.
Very even here, you be the judge Aopen or Asus.
I think the drivers once again were preventing the AAX4 tests from being run properly. Abit and MSI were even.
Same problem again drivers not letting tests run properly on normal testing on the Abit and AOpen. Asus or MSI would have to be the choice here. None of the MX440 cards would run AAX4 tests.
Scores are fairly close but the winner would have to be Asus just beat out the other cards by a few frames.
Well all four cards performed well, it is kinda hard to choose a clear winner. Asus and the MSI performed the best overall and consistantly. The Aopen is really the only card that didn't come with anything extra, but it was the cheapest. I personally like the MSI because of the extra stuff you get with the card and for $159CAN its a steal. I think that any card that we tested would be a good choice, you would just have to decide if games were important enough to pay the extra price.
