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

Albatron Trinity PC6600GT

Notwithstanding its blue circuit board, the Albatron PC6600GT is rather conventional looking compared to its two sisters . But taking a closer look, we see that the fan's heatsink, with its fine copper cooling fins, and the passive cooling elements on the memory modules stand out pleasantly.

The noise of the fan while in operation is unobtrusive. With a rating of 505 MHz core and a 1010 MHz memory data rate, the card is only minimally over NVIDIA's reference specs of 500/1000 MHz.
