MSI NX7600GT-VT2D256E Geforce 7600GT Videocard Review

Posted by Parth Barot on July 12, 2006

The GeForce 7600GT GPU holds a lot of promise but it also has a lot to prove considering how successful its predecessor was.

ATi and nVIDIA videocards of the same generation are pretty much evenly matched, but when it comes to extra features…. nVIDIA gets top honours. The high performance and popularity of the nForce chipsets and the ability to run dual videocards in SLI have given nVidia a big leg up over ATi and its offerings like Crossfire (which has yet to show its face in the PCSTATS labs).

Advances in videocard technology come like there’s no tomorrow, and any GPU that lasts more than eight months is almost unheard of. The GeForce 6600GT has, and was able to reach this feat due to attractive value and performance qualities. In fact from the time the GeForce 6600GT was first introduced, no less than three generations of high end nVIDIA GPUs have passed by.

The GeForce 6600GT is a great GPU, but its age is starting to show. Hence, the new nVidia GeForce 7600GT is hitting the streets. The GeForce 7600GT GPU holds a lot of promise but it also has a lot to prove considering how successful its predecessor was. Will nVIDIA have another blockbuster here, or will the GeForce 7600GT fizzle and burn out? These are the questions we’re wondering, and it will take more than one review to fully answer either of them.

At first glance the MSI Computer NX7600GT-VT2D256E PCI Express videocard is pretty impressive compared to GeForce 6600GT class models. The frame buffer has been increased to 256MB over the original GeForce 6600GT spec of 128MB. While nVIDIA did also release a 256MB version of the 6600GT, this time around the videocard can take advantage of the memory. The MSI NX7600GT-VT2D256E videocard also supports two dual link DVI output connectors as well as a whole host of TV output options; everything from component output to traditional S-Video is rolled in.

The Geforce 7600GT series is SLI compatible (note the SLI bridge connector on the top of the videocard), so if you have two and a compatible motherboard you can double up your graphics processing for a little extra speed in the games.
