Well, going to GeForce 4. Hmm, they List GeForce4 Ti, GF4 MX, GF4 Go.
GF4 MX is a blatant ripoff attempt as I said. No doubt made by some
marktoid to increase sales. GF4 Go you'll have hard time finding for
Going to Ti section, and voila, 3 models.
I misunderstood you a bit. I would say they are basic models ,
while 3rd party manufacturers try to differentiate themselves, by
imagining flashy names and adding extra features, picking better memory,
etc. Personally, I wouldn't like Seeing Leadtek GF4 Ti 4600, Canopus
Gf4 ti 4600, along with 40 other cards which just have different company
name on the box, being just relabeled nVidia reference boards.
