This card, based on the NVIDIA 7600 GS chipset, is not that bad a performer
until you really tweak your game settings to stress it. The card comes with a
256 MB GDDR2 memory, with support for HDTV and DVI much like the 7600 GT
reviewed above. We tested this card on the same configuration as the 7600 GT,
and as expected the card could not even reach close to 7600 GT in performance.
This is perhaps due to the lower memory bandwidth of this card.

Price: Rs 7,200 (3-yrs warranty)
Key Specs: 256 MB GDDR2, OpenGL 2.0, HDTV Ready, DVI support

However, if we compare it to the runner-up of our graphics card shootout-Powercolor
X1600XT, refer to page 124, May 2006-the card scores better for DOOM3 at 1024
x 768 resolution (scoring 70.7 fps) where the Powercolor had scored only 52.3
fps. Still, this is nowhere near our winner in the budget gaming category-the
XFX 6800 GT that got a whopping 117 fps despite running with a lower grade
processor than the one used for this card. In3D Mark, the 7600 GS scored a mere
4086, way behind the 7600 GT and even the winner and runner up (as mentioned
above) of the shootout that had scored 5153 and 5390 respectively.

Bottom Line: Though an average performer, the low price and 3-yrs
warranty may attract some buyers.
