Reviewed: Millennium G400 32mb

Final Breakdown

Installation:

Installation is just like any other card, but there was a minor hitch in getting the OpenGL driver to work. A clean install of Windows was required, other than that, it's quite easy.

Price:

At an estimated price of $155 from a search on PriceWatch, the value of the card is exceptional. The card might not be for the hardcore gamer, but there is still a ton of great performance out of this card. The additional software bundle, game bundle, TV out connectors, and 32mb on-board memory, that is a great price.

Performance:

For the price range it is in, the TNT2 is in the same price range. For the same amount of money, performance is very competitive in OpenGL, in Direct3D, the Millennium G400 steals the show with it's exceptional high resolution and 32-Bit rendering with little or no performance hit.

Features:

With the most abundant feature of any 3D Accelerator chipset on the market, the Millennium G400 is a winner. DualHead, EMBM, and VCQ˛, features that all other videocards do not support, the G400 chipset is unbeaten. Combine those great features with the best image quality of any 2D/3D Accelerator chipset out there, and the Millennium G400 comes out on top.

Overall:

One of the best graphics boards released this year, combined with excellent performance, graphic quality, and features, the Millennium G400 is a winner.
