ASUS N6600GT TOP AGP Review
NGO Review: ASUS N6600GT AGP Published on July 11th, 2005

Introduction:

nVidia has recently released the new 7800GTX. This new top of the line video card delivers great performance but unfortunately not everyone can afford one. Most users today still dont even have a PCIe slot. We searched for an AGP card that can deliver the goods and doesnt hurt the pockets. Thats when the ASUS Geforce 6600GT TOP entered the picture. ASUSs products are known worldwide for their high quality and performance. In this article you will discover how to benefit from their performance without breaking the bank.

The standard Geforce 6600 GT core is clocked at 500 MHz and the memory is clocked at 450 MHz (900 MHz effectively). The Asus 6600GT TOP comes pushing higher speeds right out of the box. The 6600GT uses 1.6ns DDR3 memory modules clocked at 550 (1100MHz effectively) and the core is clocked at 520MHz. With the speeds that ASUS has applied (520/550) the memory bandwidth reaches 17.7 Gb/sec and the fillrate 4.16 Giga pixels/sec. Rather impressive numbers indeed.

NVIDIA® CineFX™ 3.0 engine
Full support for Microsoft DirectX9.0 Shader model 3.0 enables stunning and complex special effects

NVIDIA UltraShadow™ II technology
enhances the performance of bleeding-edge games

NVIDIA® Intellisample™ 3.0 technology
The industrys fastest antialiasing delivers ultra-realistic visuals, with no jagged edges, at lightning-fast speed

NVIDIA® nView™ multi-display technology
Provides the ultimate in viewing flexibility and control for multiple monitors

Digital Vibrance Control 3.0 Technology
Allows the user to adjust color controls digitally to compensate for the lighting conditions of their workspace, in order to achieve accurate, bright colors in all conditions.

On-Chip Video Processor
Delivers unmatched video performance, features, and quality.

CineFX 3.0 and Shader Model 3.0
With the increased horsepower provided by the CineFX 3.0 engine, developers can create more unique game features and effects than ever before. New effects include subsurface scattering, providing depth and realistic translucence to skin and other surfaces; soft shadows for sophisticated lighting effects; accurately represented environmental and ground shadows; and global illumination for incredibly photorealistic lighting. All of these effects can be combined to create intricate, detailed, true-to-life scenes that completely immerse you in the game environment.

Infinite length shader programs
With CineFX 3.0 there are no hardware-imposed limitations on shader programs. The technology and speed advancements of CineFX 3.0 ensure that longer programs will run blazingly fast.

Dynamic flow control
Additional looping/branching options and new subroutine call/return functions give programmers even more choices for writing efficient shader programs.

Displacement mapping
CineFX 3.0 allows vertex processing with textures, providing a new level of depth and realism to every component, surface, and character in a scene. Displacement mapping allows developers to make subtle changes in a models geometry with very little computational cost.

Vertex frequency stream divider
Effects can be efficiently applied to multiple characters or objects in a scene, providing individuality where models are otherwise identical.

Multiple Render Target (MRT) technology
MRTs allow for deferred shading, a technique where the lighting of a scene can be done after rendering all of the geometry, eliminating multiple passes through the scene. Photorealistic lighting can be created while avoiding unnecessary processing time for pixels that do not contribute to the visible portions of an image.


NVIDIA Pure Video
High-Definition Video: NVIDIA PureVideo technology finally allows you to experience lifelike HD-DVD playback on your PC, notebook, or HDTV without the expense of additional home-theatre devices. With dedicated hardware to accelerate MPEG-2/DVD as well as the new Microsoft® Windows Media® HD Video (WMV HD) standard, your DVDs come to life in detail never before possible on a PC. Using NVIDIA PureVideo technology, the GPU offloads video decoding from the CPU, resulting in smooth, stutter-free, high-definition video playback. And, since PureVideo supports most current and future HD formats, you can rest assured that a PC powered by PureVideo will keep up with the pace of tomorrows video technologies, and continue to deliver HD content well into the future.
