Despite of not being the most highly-anticipated graphics processor of the year, the NV43, also known as the GeForce 6600, delivers just everything you would expect from a mainstream graphics card with some proof for the future: powerful architecture, support for Shader Model 3.0 and great thermal and power consumption characteristics. But how well does it perform in modern games?
The 3D real-time strategy game Perimeter is probably the most demanding game in our tests. Even top-end graphics cards often falter here.
As you see, it only makes sense to comment on 1024x768 display mode. The RADEON 9800 XT wins in the mainstream sector, and is followed by the GeForce 6600 GT (overclocking even makes it the leader). The game seems to have a fancy to the RADEON architecture – the RADEON X600 XT surpasses the GeForce 6600.
It’s all the same here as in the pure speed mode, but none of the graphics cards provides the bare minimum of playability.
