Asus AGP-V6600 Deluxe Review


I can see big question marks coming from some of you regarding this topic already. As I have stated time and time again, overclocking is NOT the more stable way to run your hardware and the returns will vary from part to part. I only overclock with stock cooling and typical case cooling devices, nothing more. I also only claim to have a 'stable' machine if the card is able to complete tests without any visual problems or lock ups. In this particular case, I was able to clock our V6600 to 155 MHz core and 215 MHz memory speed. The card ran flawlessly over a 24-hour period of testing and looping of game demos overnight. I was surprised to say the least. In the test results I have included the performance runs with the V6600 at this speed. The numbers it produces are very impressive.
