Default XFX Geforce 7600GT Fatal1ty - Cooler and Faster than others

With the official release of the NVIDIA G80 based high end video cards in November last year, it is only a matter of months before we see new mid-range mayhem released for every budget minded gamer out there. At the very last moment XFX decided to satisfy gamers with one of the last G70 based video cards, their 7600GT Fatal1ty edition features passive cooling and faster clock speeds at a competitive price. How much faster? We find out.

X1950Pro is out the 7600GT league, the 7900GS is the X1950Pro match which Geoffrey compared earlier here: http://www.madshrimps.be/gotoartik.php?articID=523

I really like the card's specs, 80nm should be one good overclocker

SusAside, you might have a point, the X1950Pro performs quite on par with the 7600GT in this review: http://www.trustedreviews.com/graphi...1ty-7600-GT/p4

Depends on what graph and game you're looking at, and what the bottleneck in the system is

upping res/AA gives you this:
http://www.trustedreviews.com/images...924-graph9.gif

Which is another extreme case, i know, but just as valid. The problem is that they don't mention the system test configuration
If you look at how cs:source scales, you see a big cpu bottleneck at 1280x1024, with all the cards performing the same, and only some spacing apart as the resolution increases. If you'd only look at that one resolution, you'd draw the wrong conclusions.

and the price difference isn't that big, in germany u can find x1950pro's for €165 for the bog standard cards, but a more general pricerange is €180-200

edit: ah yes they do: "To test I used our standard selection of benchmarks in our reference Intel 975XBX “Bad Axe” motherboard, with an Intel X6800 Core 2 Duo, coupled with 2GB of Corsair CMX1024-6400C4 running at 800MHz with latency settings of 4-4-4-12." Strange that even that processor bottlenecks these mid range cards.

well, it might be 35 euros more expensive, but it's still ATI's best mainstream card (price/performance). a comparison with that is always educational i'd say (and a good reference).

the 7600GT is competitor to X1650XT in fact, as seen in this review: ATI Radeon X1650XT vs. Nvidia GeForce 7600GT

unfortunately Geoffrey changed test configs, so he couldn't reuse the numbers of his X1950Pro tests, the cards have been since send back to companies.

Can somebody tell me how high the 7600gt fatality is ?

I'm worried if the card fits in my silverstone lc-16m

Should fit in there.
