Albatron upgrades system memory for GeForce 6600 and 6600LE PCIe graphics cards
Press release; Jessie Shen, DIGITIMES [Thursday 1 December 2005]

Albatron Technology recently announced the 512MB version of its GeForce 6600 and 6600LE PCI Express (PCIe) graphics cards, with prices similar to equivalent 256MB cards. Availabilities of the 6600 512 and 6600LE 512 series are slated for the middle of December, according to the company.

In addition to 512MB of DDR2 memory, the 6600 512 and 6600LE 512 cards support 350MHz in core clock speed, 533MHz in memory clock speed, and a 128-bit memory bus, said Albatron. At the time of this writing, the two cards were boasting more on-board memory (512 MB) for a VGA card than any other card currently on the market, claimed Albatron.

Powered by the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GPU series, Albatron’s 6600 and 6600LE series provide complete support for DirectX 9.0 and Shader Model 3.0 optimizing compatibility with the most popular 3D gaming software. With D-Sub and DVI connectors, the 6600 512 bundles an HDTV cable that contains S-Video and AV connectors.
