in this roundups' trinity of Albatron cards is, appropriately enough, the Albatron
Trinity GeForce 6600. This PCI Express card uses the Geforce 6600 GPU and packs
the standard 128MB of memory in eight 5ns Hynix modules. The card is clocked at
306MHz core and 500MHz memory, essentially stock speed for the 6600.
heatsink/fan combo cools the core effectively and virtually silently, but does
not cover the memory modules. Albatron has not included an MIO connector for SLI
as it did on the Trinity 6600U card also included in this roundup. Since SLI is
not supposed to work with the 6600 GPU, this is not really surprising. The front
of the card sports the usual trio of VGA,DVI and S-video/breakout connectors.
Albatron Trinity GeForce 6600 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 software is comprised
of WinDVD/WinDVD Creator, an old five-game demo CD and Arx Fatalis. Again no
DVI-converter, which continues to be an annoyance.
core of the Albatron Trinity GeForce 6600 was able to overclock all the way up
to 437MHz, which is a very impressive speed for a 6600-based card. The memory
did not fare so well, dropping off at a just 537MHz.
