More about 7600gt gddr2 gddr3
  1. gddr3 will be a crap load faster
  2. GDDR2 is pointless...
  3. Dang... well the label says GDDR2 but does 7600 GT have gddr2 and gddr3 or just gddr3?

    How do I test/check exactly what it has, gddr2 or gddr3? What tool or software do I use?

    Thanks.
  4. Well the product box or whatever will tell you, plus you can search for GDDR3 versions on Newegg and such.

    Don't be fooled by the higher amount of VRAM. It's, in my opinion, solely a marketing scheme to get people to buy what they think is a better product; when in all actuality it's not.
  5. If DDR3 > DDR2 Then
    Prompt "DDR3 kicks DDR2's ass!"
    Else
    Prompt "DDR2 does't kick DDR3's ass, sorry!!"
    End

    That 7600 gddr2 is AGP... I'm saying I couldn't find 7600 gt gddr2 pci-express x16 in NewEgg... does it exist?

    To answer the question of, "Is there a GDDR2 version of the 7600GT in PCI-Express interface?" No. I could NOT find a 7600GT in GDDR2 using the PCI-Express bus.
  8. So either this card is out of this world or the label that's on the card is a typo (should be gddr3).

    One way to find out is a tool/software or a way to check whether it is gddr2 or 3... but how?

    Thanks.

    Well nwo that i think about it, I think when my friend got his 7600GT he got it with GDDR2, and he used PCI-Express, but that was over a year ago so I can't be to sure. if you want to know, use a tool called GPU-Z, there was a post here in the forums nto to long ago. I'll do a google search on it for you.

    EDIT2: I found your GDDR2 7600Gt PCI-Express card. Here you go...

    EDIT3: NVM, that was a GS, but it seems to me only the 7600GS can be in GDDR2 and PCI-Express interface, n ot the GT.
  10. I used GPU-Z and it says DDR2 (not gddr2 but maybe the same)...
    It is 7600 GT, 8 pixel shaders, PCI-Express x16, 3.6GPixel/s fillrate, 3.6GTexel/s fillrate, 128bit, 256MB, 8.0Gb/s bandwidth, GPU Clock: 450MHz and 250MHz memory clock.
  11. GDDR3 is always faster GDDR2.
  12. When referring to graphics cards, DDR2 and GDDR2 is the same thing, the only time referring to DDR2 would be different is when discussing system RAM.
  13. ok ty all.
