well the FX 5200 is the lesser of the later series, and the ti4600 is the better of the earlier series, so........




































I guess you'd have to read benchmarks, because you can't really compare them otherwise.

www.tomshardware.com has benchmarks for both cards and the 4600 easily outperforms the 5200. Although the test setups for the two cards weren't EXACTLY the same, it still shows that the 4600 is more powerful.

The Ti 4600 will clearly beat the FX 5600.

Reasons:

- FX 5600 (NV31) operates on a 4x1 rendering pipeline (4 pipes + 1 texture mapping unit per pipe), whereas the 4600 operates on 4x2
- FX 5600: 325/500 MHz core and memory frequencies, respectively. Ti 4600 = 325/650 MHz
- FX 5600: 8.0 GB/sec. max. theoretical bandwidth. Ti 4600: 10.4 GB/sec.

The FX 5600 Ultra can be competed with the Ti 4600, but the performance issue there is pretty much 50/50. One weakness of the Ti 4600 is the lack of many features introduced in DirectX 9. There aren't very many DX9 feature-enabled games out on the market, but expect more on the way. For now, if you intend to keep the card for 6-10 months, the Ti 4600 is a good idea.

Yea I'm wondering that too. How can the ti4600 out perform the 5600 when it only has half as much ram?

i think you find that the speed of the ram on the 4600 makes up for it as the fx5600 that msi make only actually runs at 400 mhz i know i had one from msi. Also the 4600 has better fill rate and operations a second but i am not sure.
