Default Albatron's GeForce 6600 512, 6600LE 512 mainstream VGA cards PACKING 512 MB

Albatron recently announced two VGA cards, each with an unprecedented 512 MBs of on-board memory and both offering prices similar to equivalent 256 MB cards. The 6600 512 and 6600LE 512 are memory-loaded mainstream cards targeting a larger market of consumers hungry for powerful 3D graphics capability with a strong cost/performance value.

The 6600 512 and 6600LE 512 are PCI-Express (x16) cards, both with a 350 MHz core clock. The 512 MB of memory is DDR2 with a memory clock of 533 MHz and a 128-bit memory bus. At the time of this writing, these cards were boasting more on-board memory (512 MB) for a VGA card than any other card currently on the market.

These cards use NVIDIAŽ's popular GeForce 6600 series of GPUs which provide complete support for DirectX 9.0 and Shader Model 3.0 optimizing compatibility with the most popular 3D gaming software.

These cards will both have D-Sub and DVI connectors. The 6600 512 will bundle an HDTV cable which also contains S-Video and AV connectors.

With the amount of 3D graphics data increasing with every new game , the 6600 512 and 6600LE 512 are giving the mainstream user access to affordable graphics equipment armed with enough memory support to tackle even the most demanding of graphics applications.

512Mb on 6600 seems to be bit of overkill
