The GeForce 6600 GT AGP was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in November 2004. Built on the 110 nm process, and based on the NV43 A2 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. Since GeForce 6600 GT AGP does not support DirectX 11 or DirectX 12, it might not be able to run all the latest games. The NV43 A2 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 150 mm² and 146 million transistors. It features 8 pixel shaders and 3 vertex shaders, 8 texture mapping units, and 4 ROPs. Due to the lack of unified shaders you will not be able to run recent games at all (which require unified shader/DX10+ support). NVIDIA has paired 128 MB GDDR3 memory with the GeForce 6600 GT AGP, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 500 MHz, memory is running at 475 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT AGP draws power from 1x Molex power connector, with power draw rated at 47 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. GeForce 6600 GT AGP is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface.
