okay, so you knew what he meant.

you need to do some reading.  i'd suggest nvidia's website as a start.
you'll count 7 products which call themselves part of the geforce4

[1]: see [2]

however, asus alone markets 2 different versions of the geforce4 Ti4600
and 2 different versions of the Ti4400.

creative offers their own lineup.

leadtek offers no less than 8 versions of a geforce4.

tell me the pros and cons between the "leadtek winfast A250 ultra TDH"
and the "creative 3D blaster 4 titanium 4600".  i'd like a comparitave
analysis including pricing comparisons.

so in the previous paragraph you said it was quite easy to keep track of
the geforce4 models.  yet now you say it's confusing (actually, the word
you're looking for is "misleading").

thanks for making my point for me.
