Dual MSI NX6600GT-TD128E SLI Videocard Review

Dual MSI NX6600GT-TD128E SLI Videocard Review  - PCSTATS
Abstract: A single GeForce 6600GT-based videocard is about as quick as last generation's Radeon 9800XT/GeForceFX 5950 Ultra cards, and then there is the "SLI factor."

Advanced Benchmarks: 3DMark2001, UT2003

3DMark2001SE Source: FutureMark

By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, 3DMark2001 SE continues to provide a good overall system benchmark. 3DMark2001SE has been created in cooperation 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 performance 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 numbers denote better performance.

While SLI doesn't boost overall score very much in 3DMark2001 as we saw a few pages ago, it does allow users to enable all the eye candy and still get a good score.

Unreal Tournament 2003

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2003 is the sequel to 1999's multiple 'Game of the Year' award winner. It uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology - where graphics, sound and game play are taken beyond the bleeding edge. Unreal Tournament 2003 employs the use of Vertex as well as Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 8 videocard to get the most out of the game.

This time around we did not bother record the botmach scores since they stay pretty much the same no matter the resolution (system limited, not videocard limited). With only 2x AA enabled, the single MSI GeForce 6600GT videocard is able to keep up with the SLI setup. When quality is turned up higher, there's no catching SLI. Same applies for the AF settings and when both are enabled at the same time the SLI setup is massively superior!
