Does anyone know the difference with the two graphics cards?
6600 and 6600GT.
Is there much of a performance difference?
Thanks

The 6600GT is clocked at 500/1000 and the 6600 is clocked at 300/550.

Also the GT6600 has Lot more bandwith than the 6600 the 6600GT is even
better than the 6800 and for the price seriously get the 6600GT it
worth it. I just bought it 3 days ago awsome is the word.

The information isn't falls at all it has been proven that the 6600GT
is better than the 6800 they've tested with all kind of processors
resolutions, they benchmarked both of them played doom with both of
them and they overcloked both of themn and the 6600gt than reall beated
the 6800 the conclusion was that the 6600GT is better than the 6800 not
that much difference but stil better and for the price i'd get the
6600GT which I actuallt did.

ehmm and wierd because i saw the same bechmarks as you did and another
site was tellin all the opposite but anyway. Anyway i forgot to tell
that my friend got the same pc as I do i built it up for him but he
bought the 6800 way before i bought the 6600GT he did bechmarks on
3Dmarks 03 he got 8239 and when i did the test i came with 9634 and
none of us ovecloked the video cards so whatever you have seen on the
net il just stay with my opinion it might be faster with other system
they tried it

anyway happy new year dudes

Well whatever you seen on the net my friends has the same PC than me
except he bought the 6800 before i did my 6600GT he believed that the
6800 would be better but we both did benchmark with 3DMarks03 and he
got with th 6800 7287 and I got with my 6600GT 8674. As you see there's
a lot of difference I don't believe what I see on the net until i
really test them my self. I'l just stay with my opinion that the 600Gt
is better.

Please don't spread false information. The 6600GT is only faster than
the 6800 sometimes, most of the time the 6800 is faster.

http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=2196

Aquamark3: 6800 wins
Doom3: 6800 wins
FarCry: 6600GT wins 4xAA/8xAF, 6800 wins otherwise
Halo: 6600GT wins
Jedi Academy: 6800 wins
UT2004: 6600GT wins 16x12 4xAA/8xAF, 6800 wins otherwise

Note, that when the 6600GT won the above tests, it wasn't a commanding
lead that the 6800 had when it won over the 6600GT.

6600GT has DDR3 memory.

6600 can overclock alot. Depending on the one you get, 450-600.

True, video card frame rates vary by CPU speeds, but it's safe to say
on average, that if you have a fast cpu, the 6800 will be a better
choice. Also, systems can vary too by how they're configured (e.g.
I've seen 2 hardware exact systems run at completely different speeds
due to what is running/install/configured/misconfigured/drivers/etc).

http://graphics.tomshardware.com/graphic/20041119/index...

Another site that shows that the 6800 is faster, this time in every
benchmark, but then again, they tested it on a 3.2GHz cpu. A slower
cpu may just show that the 6600GT is faster in some games.

Happy new year to you too.

Doesn't the 6800 lack 'pure video' support while the 6600GT has it?

Nope. 6800 has it as well.

"What was once known only as the NV4x Video Processor has now been
given the marketing name PureVideo. PureVideo is exclusively available
on the GeForce 6 series of GPUs and only the latest GeForce 6 GPUs
have a fully functional PureVideo core. The original NV40 and NV45
(GeForce 6800GT/Ultra) do not have functional Windows Media Video 9
decode acceleration, but the rest of the GeForce 6 series are feature
complete (GeForce 6800/6600GT/6600/6200)."

So, what the heck does that mean? I have an Asus FX6800 that shows in
Everest as NV40 silicon. Is my GPU fully functional or not?

Your GPU is fine. PureVideo refers to video decoding acceleration,
games aren't affected by it at all. So if you watch a lot of dvds or
wmv videos, they'll use less cpu resources while playing with
PureVideo enabled.

I understand that PureVideo isn't game related and deals with processing DVD
and perhaps other video. What I want to know is if the V9999 Asus 256 MB
FX6800GE has the PureVideo "bug" or is capable of GPU decode/encode of the
video material in question.
