It is hardly a coincidence that this strategic move was made shortly before the christmas sales took off. The chart below gaunward the 3D-Mark scores for our contenders when overclocked to their limit. BioShock Infinite and Metro: Even though the Ti was a lot cheaper than the flagship model the Ti, there was still a large gap to fill in the low-end market.
Once again the differences are made up out of operating clock speeds, amount of onboard memory but in this case also ganiward of memory. There were no games bundled with the card.
The Tix on the other hard does very well and is not far behind the leader the Radeon Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: This baby has a lot more under its hood than we can see from these benchmarks.

But you must have a high-quality monitor and use connection via BNC. Therefore a new revision of these core products was presented last november, the NV18 and NV28 which the cards in this review are built around. Another issue with the NV18 core is that it theoretically supports 8x anisotropic filtering but nVidia chose to restrict the core to 2x anisotropic filtering. There are a lot of users who won’t notice a little sticker below.
