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.
Chronicles of Riddick
The amount of onboard graphics memory doesn’t really matter in this game. At least the performance difference between ASUS Extreme N6600GT Silencer and GeForce 6600 GT can easily fit into the measuring error. This solution yields only to GeForce 6800 because it has more pixel processors: 12 against 8. When we overclock our ASUS card the gap shrinks. Moreover, the pure speed performance of the ASUS Extreme N6600GT Silencer overclocked to 50MHz/1200MHz frequencies in low resolutions is even higher than that of the GeForce 6800. ATI based graphics cards can’t compete on equal terms with the NVIDIA based solutions in the Chronicles of Riddick , because this game works ion OpenGL mode.
