COMMENT "Right from the start Inno3D GeForce 6600 GT pulls away from the other three video cards. Warhammer 40K Dawn of War is a very cpu limited game which is why the frame rates are quite close together. With this game the power of Inno3D GeForce 6600 GT is partly crippled and it's only able to offer a 11%-13% increase in performance."

COMMENT "X2 the Threat is a visually amazing space based game, due to the amount of cpu controlled ships and stations it is also fairly cpu limited. The frame rates are once again quite close together however Inno3D GeForce 6600 GT wins this round also."

COMMENT "The older generation of video cards like the GeForce 5900 XT, Radeon 9700 Pro and Radeon 9600 XT just can't compete with Inno3D GeForce 6600 GT which finishes 4182 points ahead of the Radeon 9700 Pro. That is a huge 30% gaming performance increase which is why ULTIMATEHARDWARE.NET highly recommends Inno3D GeForce 6600 GT!"
