Default XFX GeForce 6600GT

We first looked at the GeForce 6600GT on AGP back in November, and since then we have seen a deluge of board partners bringing out cards based on the technology. When Tim concluded his feature on the reference board, he complained about driver issues and the low clock speeds on the reference board, whilst being impressed with the chip overall.

The 6600GT on PCI-E is clocked at 500/1000, whereas the AGP version we saw from Nvidia is clocked at 500/900. Well, XFX have come through again as the gamers' choice and have decked out their card with fully-functional 1000MHz memory, putting this card ahead of the rest of the 6600 pack.

This is really going to be a fly-by feature, because the fundamental performance is exactly the same as the reference board that we tested. We know that the technology beats the 9800Pro, ATI's current equivalent on AGP, and we know that we can kick out around 60FPS in Doom 3 at 1280/2x/8x. For this article, then, we're going to take a look at the actual XFX card and run it through a couple of benchmarks to show its additional performance over the reference board.
