VGA Card Buyer's Guide 07/2003


The clock speeds of the PixelView GeForceFX 5600 differ from the specified reference clock speeds. In the following graph, we show the performance of the card compared to that of a standard FX 5600.

Conclusion: The PixelView is a rather inconspicuous card with slightly higher performance than average FX4500 cards, thanks to its increased memory clocks. Its 256 MB memory does not offer any advantages. The quiet fan is a nice plus.
