Albatron Trinity GeForce 6600GT AGP

The first AGP-compatible card in our roundup, and the second from Albatron. The Albatron Trinity GeForce 6600GT AGP features the faster 6600GT GPU combined with 128MB of Samsung K4J55323QF-GC20 DDR3 BGA memory. This card came to us clocked to the 6600GT's default core/memory speeds of 500MHz/1000MHz.

Albatron Trinity GeForce 6600GT - AGP8x
Includes:

Users Manual, Driver CD, WinDVD/WinDVD Creator CD, Five Game Demo CD, Arx Fatalis, S-Video/Component Out Breakout box

The first thing anyone will notice about this card is the rather un-impressive looking aluminium heatsink cooling the 6600GT core and memory chips. This chunk of aluminium is actually quite sharp, and care should be taken when installing the card as the edges could quite easily cut you. It's heavy too, but does not stand out much from the card, which is good. The fan was a bit louder than we've gotten used to recently, but it's not overwhelming noisy by any means.

The front of the Albatron Trinity GeForce 6600GT AGP features the standard VGA/DVI/S-Video bunch of ports. As it is an AGP 8x card, the Albatron Trinity GeForce 6600GT AGP does not support SLI and does not feature an MIO connector. External power is required, also due to the card's AGP form-factor, and a molex power connector is located on the back of the card facing towards the rear.

This card came with the same sparse bundle as the other Albatron cards in our roundup... A simple breakout box is included which features component, S-Video and composite connectors. The included software is comprised of WinDVD/WinDVD Creator, an old five game demo CD and Arx Fatalis. Again no DVI-converter, which we still found annoying.

Overclocking: The maximum speed we attained with the Albatron Trinity GeForce 6600GT AGP was 578MHz core/1073MHz memory. Not bad at all considering its... interesting stock cooling solution, but not Albatron's best effort by any stretch.
