and what it can do for you.
And this card can output demo reels!
With the Softquadro4
addon, you can customize your TI4600s
OpenGL settings to match your favorite 3d application.
One of the downsides to this card, compared to a Quadro, is its lack
of 3d application OpenGL presets. Until recently there was no easy way
to configure a Geforce4
to work with your favorite 3d application. But with Softquadro4
all of that has changed. This little utility will force the standard
drivers to recognize your Gainward
Ti 4600 as a Quadro card rather than a GeForce4
card. After installing Softquadro4
you may or may not see a speed increase, but you will be able to set
your cards custom OpenGL settings to match your favorite 3d Application.
This goes a long way to making sure that you don't get strange artifacts
in your view ports or crashes related to having the wrong OpenGL settings.

With the video capabilities
of the Gainward Ti4600
you can create your own demo reel, watch DVD movies and play video games
on a standard TV.
One of the nice things about
this card is that you can make your demo reel with it. It has excellent
video input/output capabilities. (Called VIVO) Just compress your reel
properly and play it straight from your computer onto videotape. (No
need for expensive video transfer and dubbing service bureaus!) Another
money saving feature is this cards ability to output from your PCs DVD
drive to a television set. So, if you've got this card and a DVD drive,
there is no need to buy a standalone DVD player too. If you are used
to playing games on your TV, then you are also in luck. Not only will
this output allow you to play DVDs but it will also allow you to play
your favorite games on the same TV screen.
Since it comes with a firewire
card you can also output directly to
or grab from your DV tapes (If you have access to a DV camera.)
