SubZeroTech wrote up a review of the Albatron GeForce4 Ti4200P Turbo :
Once upon a time there was a Graphics Processor Unit (GPU) by the name of the Geforce4 Ti4200. The Geforce4 Ti4200 GPU wowed the whole hardware community by providing an affordable yet fast video card for all. Unlike it's big brother who likes to steal from everyone's wallet, the GeForce4 Ti4200 GPU cost half as much. The one downside to the GeForce4 Ti4200 video cards were it's poor memory inclusions. The GeForce4 Ti4200's big brothers, the GeForce4 Ti4400 and the GeForce4 Ti4600 came bundled with the fastest memory available on the market. There was no problems in the GPU itself as a simple overclock can push the GeForce4 Ti4200 as fast as the GeForce4 Ti4600 GPU. Up until last month, the GeForce4 Ti4200 was still trailing the GeForce4 Ti4400 and Ti4600 in terms of memory performance as overclocking the lower rated 4.0ns memory up to the higher rated 3.3ns memory was simply not easily achievable. Albatron did not see fit to this bullying around and took matters into their own hands to produce their Albatron GeForce4 Ti4200P Turbo video card with a 8-layer PCB (just like the Ti4600) and 3.3ns BGA memory (.5ns slower than the Ti4600's). So with such a card does that mean a cheaper Ti4600? Let's find out how the story goes...
