Good 3D Performance at a Middling Price: GeForce 6600 Shootout


Trinity AGP6600GT

Albatron's AGP6600GT 3D performance is very good. The card also looks quite impressive. But due to the fan's unbearably high noise level, the card wastes its potential and can't be given high marks.

In a few motherboards, the PC6600U's oversized heatsink thwarts the problem-free installation of the card. Disregarding that, however, the card delivers very good 3D performance for GeForce 6600 proportions. The card's SLI capability is worth noting.

If you're not bothered by the card's otherwise meager array of components, you're getting a solid GeForce 6600 GT card in the Albatron PC6600GT. Thanks to the negligible increase in frame rate, the 3D performance of the PC6600GT is minimally better than that of the usual GeForce 6600 GT models.
