GeForce 6600 GT Pentium 4 Scaling Performance
With its $200 price tag, NVIDIA’s GeForce 6600 GT is designed to appeal to the mainstream consumer who wants DirectX9 graphics and good performance, but doesn’t want to pay a fortune for it. As we saw in our GeForce 6600 GT Performance Preview a week ago, NVIDIA has pulled it off quite well, with performance that’s competitive with last year’s high-end flagship DX9 offerings, but what happens when you pair the 6600 GT with a slower CPU? After all, just as most mainstream consumers don’t have the desire to spend $500 on a graphics card, most don’t have the budget for the latest and greatest CPU either.
To answer this question, we’ve gone back to speeds as low as 2.8GHz, the slowest clock speed available on Intel’s LGA-775 PCI Express platform. These chips are currently selling for under $170, making them decent bargains, but if you really want the best deal on a P4, you can find the 3.0GHz Pentium 4 online for about $15 more. We also included 3.2GHz and 3.4GHz performance results as well.
