Una GeForce 6600 GT "speciale" da Gainward
Gainward si è da sempre distinto tra i produttori di schede video basate su chip NVIDIA, per la continua ricerca di soluzioni custom con frequenze di clock superiori a quelle di default consigliate da NVIDIA.
La nuova scheda Gainward PowerPack! Ultra/1960PCX XP Golden Sample GLH è l'ultima novità del produttore taiwanese: la frequenza di clock della memoria GDDR3 è infatti pari a 1,2 Ghz, in abbinamento a chip video NV43 con clock di 540 Mhz. Le frequenze di lavoro di default per le schede GeForce 6600 GT sono pari a 1 Ghz per la memoria e a 500 Mhz per il chip video.
Di seguito è riportato l'intero comunicato stampa:
