ATI Radeon 8500 128MB ReviewBosco -
Faired a little better here but not much.:/
That is not good at all but clock speeds come into play here I think. I didn't have problems with drivers at all so it appears ATI finally is addressing that problem.
For the flagship card I dunno, I was not impressed at all. For the price of the card I thought it would have been better. One thing that I do have to stress is that the clock speeds are a lot higher on the TI card then the ATI. I have to give ATI credit though the picture quality was very good but it lacks performance. I don't see this card much of a challenge to the 4600TI at all. If you are looking for a decent card you could try this one but you may want to look at a 4200 or 4400TI if a 4600TI is to expensive. The price for this card being $269 I think is a little much for the performance that you get in return.
