GALAXY GeForce 6600 256MB

@ 2004/10/24
Snip: "I like NVIDIA's NV43 and I like GALAXY's GeForce 6600 card. What
NVIDIA has done is harness current top-end technology into a GPU and
card that, depending upon manufacturer and RAM arrangement, will cost
between £90-£120. GALAXY's card comes in at the upper end of that scale,
thanks to a healthy 256MB of onboard RAM. Looking at our benchmark
numbers that include a few older titles, it's apparent that NV43
performance makes looking at previous generation's midrange cards, and
I'm thinking of Radeon 9600s and GeForce 5700/5900 XTs, almost
pointless. What's more, GALAXY's PCI-Express 6600 card doesn't require
auxillary power and the GPU's fan is pretty damn quiet, although a few
sacrifices have to be made for the cheaper NV43 part, as there's no SLI
capability and a distinct lack of memory bandwidth from the 128-bit
interface."
