NVIDIA’s GeForce 6600 GT is renowned for exceptional performance at affordable price-points. While this chip is one year old and seems like it is time for it to leave, the market is still looking forward the GeForce 6600 GT and considers it to be the best performance-mainstream solution. This is a reason why ASUS decided to introduce its new passive SilentCool cooler along with its GeForce 6600 GT-based graphics card, which is, by the way, one of a few GeForce 6600 GT products with 256MB of memory.
The increase in the amount of onboard graphics memory from 128MB to 256MB doesn’t provide any performance advantages in Pacific Fighters , too. ASUS Extreme N6600GT Silencer and the standard GeForce 6600 GT are equally fast in all resolutions. Both cards are just a tiny bit behind GeForce 6800, but when we overclock our ASUS card it catches up with the rival in pure speed more and outperforms it in eye candy mode. NVIDIA based solutions are undefeated in this game, as usual, thanks to the efficient OpenGL driver.
