NVIDIA GeForce 6600 VE Image NVIDIA NV43 A2 Image
The GeForce 6600 VE was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in January 2005. Built on the 110 nm process, and based on the NV43 A2 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. The NV43 A2 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 150 mm² and 146 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 2 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 placed 128 MB GDDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 350 MHz, memory is running at 350 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce 6600 VE 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 VE is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 1.0 x16 interface.
