ATI Radeon HD 4350 versus EVGA GeForce 9400GT :: Test Setup and Performance

10-10-2008 · Category: Hardware - Video Cards

I tested both cards on the same platform to ensure that everything in terms of performance was on an equal level. The performance is not expected to come close to the higher priced cards so I decided to compare the two cards together against each other only as everything else is on a different price level and performance class.
