Overclocking and Benchmarks

Since the nVidia 6600 GPU in the Albatron Trinity GeForce PC6600U is already running a bit faster than spec, we weren't sure how much further we'd be able to push it, but we were pleasantly surprised by the end results.

Starting at stock speed, we were able to stretch the core speed all the way up to 514MHz! Not bad at all. Albatron must be using different silicon for the GPU compared to the vanilla Trinity PC6600 card.

And yet, on the other hand we weren't quite so successful overclocking the memory. Anything past 743MHz refused to cooperate with our benchmarks, so we settled for that speed.

Still not bad when combined with the good core overclock. Let's move on to the benchmarks and see what kind of results we get.

By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, 3DMark 2001 SE continues to provide a good overall system benchmark. 3DMark2001 SE was created in co-operation with the major 3D accelerator and processor manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test a system's true abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders, Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping, support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests using Ipion real-time physics. Higher 3DMark scores denote better performance.

A good start for the Albatron Trinity PC6600U in 3Dmark2001SE. This faster videocard clearly outclasses the Albatron PC6600. Overclocked numbers are good, almost catching up with nVidia's previous generation high-end cards.
