The new PCI Express interconnect standard doubles the bandwidth of AGP 8X delivering over 4GB/s of peak bandwidth providing screaming frame rates. The distinctive, 6600 GT model takes advantage of the increased bandwidth of the PCI Express bus architecture by supporting NVIDIA SLI ™ (Scalable Link Interface). NVIDIA SLI is a new, patent-pending technology that enables multiple graphics cards to operate in a single system—doubling graphics horsepower.
“With these latest additions to the Verto family, gamers can enjoy the state-of-the-art feature set of the high-end GeForce 6800 series and the bandwidth advantages of PCI Express at mainstream pricing,” said Craig Wiener, PNY Technologies product manager for consumer graphics cards. “The GeForce 6600 and GeForce 6600 GT arm gamers with everything they need for next-generation games such as Doom III and Half Life 2. Regardless if you’re a novice, mainstream or enthusiast, PNY offers a full range of graphics solutions that provide outstanding image quality, performance and functionality for every category and budget.”
Both cards feature a new revolutionary superscalar GPU architecture that is first to deliver Microsoftâ DirectXâ 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 support for ultra-realistic images, and unmatched performance. In order to address the growing demand from PC users for advanced video functionality and the ultimate multimedia experience, the NVIDIA GeForce 6600 Series of GPUs feature an on-chip video processor—a first in the industry. For next-generation applications and games that feature complex scenes with multiple light sources and objects, NVIDIA’s Ultrashadow II delivers 4x the shadow processing power over the previous generation.
