Apollo 6600GT AGP Video Card @ OCIA.net

OCIA.net has posted a review on the Apollo 6600GT AGP Video Card. Quote: "Some of you that have seen the nVidia control panel for other cards may notice that there is no temperature monitoring tab on the Apollo control panel. As I mentioned before, all 6600GT cores have a built-in sensor. Some card manufacturers, Apollo included, have opted not to enable temp monitoring. I assume that is to discourage overclocking." As far as i know, its’ all AGP versions of the 6600GT that have temp monitoring disabled. Check our review of the Sparkle 6600GT AGP?for infomation on how to enable the temp monitoring for?all AGP versions.

Snip: "On average, the X800XT-PE is about 5% to 10%, give or take a couple percentage points faster than the X800XT. Assuming you are lucky enough to grab an ATI X800XT-PE, the difference will be smaller. Basically, if benchmarks are your thing, the X850XT-PE is the fastest card ATI has to offer."
