Review : Gigabyte MAYA RADEON 9000 PRO

Posted on Friday, October 25 2002 @ 09:56:57 CEST by

HardwareZone reviewed another 3D card the Gigabyte MAYA RADEON 9000 PRO :
The RADEON 9000 Pro’s chief ally is its support of DirectX 8.1 features whereas NVIDIA’s direct competitor to it, the GeForce4 MX440 and MX440-8x only support yesterday’s DirectX 7.1 feature set. We did notice how nimble the GeForce4 MX440-8x was in certain test and game situations but that can be attributed to its Light Speed Memory Architecture II memory controllers acquired from the advanced GeForce4 Titanium series. Sooner or later the GeForce4 MX440-8x architecture would pale away for not having an updated graphics engine.

As for Gigabyte’s MAYA AF64DG-H RADEON 9000 Pro, it had performed positively including overclocking. It was also equipped with all the basic features that users have come to expect in modern graphics cards such as a standard analog DB15 output, TV-Output with extension cable, DVI output, DVI-I to DB15 analog output converter and a nifty V-Tuner overclocking utility that only works with Gigabyte’s graphics cards.

Priced at S$190, it is on par with other graphics cards based on competing chipsets that we have been comparing throughout this review. With such competitive pricing, Gigabyte’s MAYA AF64DG-H RADEON 9000 Pro offers superior all round solution.
