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.
Performance in Semi-Synthetic Benchmarks
The amount of available graphics memory doesn’t affect the Aquamark3 results. Despite the extensiveness of the gaming scenes, this benchmark is not that new any more so even 128MB of graphics memory can be quite enough for a graphics card here. ASUS Extreme N6600GT Silencer demonstrates results typical of any GeForce 6600 GT based solution.

This test works only in 1024x768 resolution, so I wouldn’t expect ASUS Extreme N6600GT Silencer to show any better results than any GeForce 6600 GT would do. The 47 point difference between the two GeForce 6600 GT based cards can be written off as a measuring error.
