"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.

|Not everyone needs or wants a top of the range graphics card and there are some good mid range alternatives on the market right now. One alternative to consider is one of the Radeon X700 series graphics cards, based on ATI's RV410 GPU. The X700 Pro is a smart looking little card, with a compact dual exhaust cooling solution.|

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

Some interesting news from NVIDIA and Intel today. Intel will be bundling GeForce 6600GT video cards with their PCI Express motherboards until December 31. The following products qualify:
- Intel Desktop Board D925XCV/BC family
- Intel Desktop Board D925XECV2/BV2 family
- Intel Desktop Board D915PBL/CY/CM family
Holiday upgrading just got a lot more interesting.

Not so much a review of a specific card, but rather an in-depth discussion on the merics of SLI technology. A very well written first piece to complement your next graphics purchasing decision.

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.

This marks the final step for the world as we prepare for the release of NVIDIA's SLI technology. By the end of next week, the full story will be out and ready on the web as motherboard vendors and graphics card vendors are shipping out their samples to editors and to the system vendors. This certification program will give buyers a quick way to tell if the hardware they are buying is going to work with the SLI setup they might be building. Below are the logos you'll find; "SLI-ready" for systems, motherboards and video cards that support SLI and "SLI" to be used only on c

The arguments FOR SLI technology are beginning to build up as we get more and more bits of information like this. While a new high in 3DMark05 by itself is nothing to get excited about, this is good news for hardcore gamers. (Note: the Asus page seems to be down right now, so the images aren't working at the moment!)

I got an email from a forum reader that pointed me towards the fact that you can configure an Alienware system with SLI graphics cards today. I poked around a bit more and found this informational page announcing that Alienware has support for NVIDIA's SLI graphics technologies.
The system that you can configure uses two 6800 Ultra graphics cards on Intel Xeon processo

Maybe you beleive that Half-Life 2 will be out soon, maybe you just want play through Doom3 again, but this time on Ultra settings. Either way, chances are you need a new video card. Well, if you can't wait, or can't afford a pair of PCI-X cards to run in SLI on a brand new NForce4 board, maybe one of these cards will do the trick. X-bit Labs does a wonderful write up of the ASUS V-9999, which is a great place to start off.

NVIDIA sent us these benchmarks a couple days ago, and since they are up and about on the web already, we were allowed to go ahead and post them. In addition to this table, I can personally vouch for the D3 and Halo numbers as I was in the room when the results were run and confirmed.
