NVIDIA's 7600 GS can be considered a low/midrange product. Of course it does not offer performance like the high-end video cards, but comes at a much smaller price. For people who are casual gamers and can live with lower resolutions or reduced details those cards can be a viable choice.
What Biostar did to increase the attractivity of the 7600 GS is put better memory on the PCB and add a software voltage control circuit. This means that the memory can run at much higher clocks, in this case 700 MHz, which is 75% more than the 7600 GS's default memory clock of 400 MHz
The voltage control gives you a greatly improved overclocking experience because you don't have to do risky voltmods to get more overclocking out of the card. Just use Biostar's own overclocking software and you can adjust the voltages by software.

Let's see how the specs look like compared to the regular 7600 GS and other video cards in that range.
