- The spotlight on NVIDIA's GeForce 6600 GT

Following on from nVidia's official launch at QuakeCon recently, a nice bunch of reviews have gone live today covering their latest mainstream value-based 6600 series of PCI-Express video cards. A number of the big sites out there have thrown them through the hoops, with some putting the cards up against the competition (ATI's X600 XT). Reviews have gone up over at Anandtech, Hot Hardware, Beyond 3D, Tech Report, PC Perspective, Hexus, Firing Squad, Guru3D, NVNews, Toms Hardware, XBit Labs & Bit-Tech today so far. I'll add more to this post as they surface folks.


On August 12th, NVIDIA took the wraps off their new value-based PCI-Express video cards, introducing the GeForce 6600 and 6600 GT. Back then we were given ample information in advance to do a thorough preview on what both cards brought to the game. Since our initial preview, NVIDIA provided us with a GeForce 6600 GT, which we immediately put to work in the benchmarking arena. We've been eager to see how the new GT would perform against ATI's X600, the card NVIDIA is targeting with the 6600 series. Today we have the results of our efforts and you might be surprised at what we found! Please follow the link below for more details on this impressive value-based video card.
