We´ve got a new V8420 Deluxe board from ASUS based on GeForce4 Ti4200 GPU in our lab.

It represents interesting design remade from GF4 Ti 4600 based card (with a stereoglasses socket), has the 3.3 ns Samsung memory, unique for Ti4200-based cards. Moreover, the core/memory clock rate resemble Ti4400´s, being 260/550 MHz, respectively.

According to Andrew Worobyew, the head of our videolab, such an interesting card declines any criticism about ASUS being formal with the card making. It´s a really unique product!
