|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
NV44 - 6200 w/ TurboCache
NVIDIA wants to bring the majority of their 6000-series features down below the $100 price range into the entry level market; but with a card with only a 32MB frame buffer?

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.
