BFG GEFORCE 6600 GT OC SPECIFICATIONS
The BFG GeForce 6600 GT OC is a PCI Express video card running at 525Mhz (vs 500Mhz on a standard GeForce 6600 GT) with 128MB GDDR3 memory running at 1050Mhz (vs 1000Mhz on a standard GeForce 6600 GT), it has a 400Mhz RAMDAC, connectors for Dual DVI-I, HDTV S-Video Out and a massive 16.8GB/second memory bandwidth.
BFG's Overclocked GeForce 6600 GT is the only Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT in this review which is advertised as higher than standard core and memory clock speed. The 25Mhz core and 50Mhz memory clock speed increase will not deliver a huge increase in performance but should give the BFG GeForce 6600 GT OC the required speed to beat the other video cards in this review.
The BFG GeForce 6600 GT OC has an eight pipe superscalar design, and features the only GPU in its class that supports Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0. The BFG GeForce 6600 GT OC will support NVIDIA’s SLI multi-GPU technology in a PCI Express-based system.
