The GeForce 6600 LE AGP was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in 2005. Built on the 110 nm process, and based on the NV43 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. Since GeForce 6600 LE AGP does not support DirectX 11 or DirectX 12, it might not be able to run all the latest games. The NV43 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 154 mm² and 146 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 3 vertex shaders, 4 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 DDR memory with the GeForce 6600 LE AGP, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 300 MHz, memory is running at 200 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce 6600 LE AGP does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. GeForce 6600 LE AGP is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface.
