Performance in Synthetic Benchmarks
The Leadtek WinFast PX6600 GT TDH scores almost the same number of points as the RADEON X700 XT: the ATI card has only 106 points more. Overclocking adds about 1100 points to the Leadtek’s score, but it’s still not enough to catch up with the GeForce 6600.
The Leadtek card looks very good in the first test, especially at the increased frequencies. It’s no wonder as this test is the simplest in 3DMark03 and only uses DirectX 7.
We enable full-screen anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering to see the PX6600 GT slowing down as the resolution grows: in 1600x1200 it is on the same level with the RADEON X700 PRO. At the increased frequencies the Leadtek card is ahead of the RADEON X700 XT and equals it in the highest resolution.
The second game test runs faster on NVIDIA’s cards due to the employed rendering techniques. This time the PX6600 GT is far ahead of the RADEON X700 XT. When overclocked to 650MHz GPU frequency, the Leadtek card comes very close up to the RADEON X800 XL.
The WinFast PX6600 GT TDH can’t rival the RADEON X800 XL in the “eye candy” mode, but it is ahead of mainstream graphics cards from ATI Technologies.
