COMMENT "Once again MSI GeForce4 Ti4200 beats Club3D Deltachrome S8 this time by 32% when using low quality settings. All of the video cards take a fairly large performance hit when using medium quality but MSI GeForce4 Ti4200 still manages to stay ahead of Club3D Deltachrome S8 but only by 15%. High Quality settings are too much for all of the video cards and none offer anywhere near a playable level of performance."

CONCLUSION "The Club3D Deltachrome S8 delivered good performance and was usually playable using low quality settings. The Club3D Deltachrome S8 was also much faster than XFX GeForce 5200 and XFX GeForce MX 4000 video cards. However it was not a match for MSI GeForce4 Ti4200 which can usually be purchased for less than the cost of Club3D Deltachrome S8 on Ebay. The positive points for Club3D Deltachrome S8 outweigh the negative and Club3D Deltachrome S8 offers very good DX9 and Anisotropic Filtering performance. These are two features MSI GeForce4 Ti4200 either doesn't have (DX9) or suffers a large performance hit with that option enabled."
