Those with systems that have 512MB of memory or less should avert their eyes as images of ATI's 512MB "proof-of-concept" graphics card have found their way online. Try not to think of the cost and instead focus on the performance boost the extra memory could lend in something like Doom3.

"The GeForce 6600 video card was initially released as a PCI-Express video card. Recently Nvidia released an AGP version of the 6600 for those who have not made the leap to the new bus type. Nvidia places the 6600 series in the performance category while the biggest and baddest 6800 is in the enthusiast category. Currently there are two models of the 6600 line, the regular 6600 and 6600GT which is faster than the regular 6600.

Those of you interested in laptop gaming might want to check out this review of ATI's Mobility X800. You can find the review over at Beyond3d.

"M28, fundamentally, is very similar to M18 as they are both derived from basically the same core parts. Where M18 is derived from ATI's R420 core,
M28 is derived from R423 - both of these cores are architecturally, and performance configuration wise, the same but R420 is built for AGP graphics
whilst R423 is built for PCI Express.

The X700 Pro is a smart looking little card, with a compact dual exhaust cooling solution.

Gigabyte Previews dual-chip 6600GT SLI Card

I just got this in an email from Gigabyte, and it looks damn cool.  We are looking at a dual 6600GT card (that's right, one card) with 256 MB of DDR3 memory on a 256-bit memory bus, running at a memory clock of 600 MHz and a core clock of 500 MHz (each, I assume).  I have included the 1 page PDF file as an image they sent out below.


What is still left to be determined is how exactly this is working!  My first theory is presume that the card itself is splitting the PCIe bus into two buses, one going to each chip seperately and with a direct connection between

The PCI Express version of this card has been out for a few weeks, but the AGP version has finally also been released.  This card seems to be NVidia's successor to the low priced GeForce4 Ti 4200, with a fairly impressive performance boost, of course.  If jumping into PCI Express isn't in your plans, but a new videocard is, NVidia may have your answer.
