Bij AnandTech is vandaag ook een kleine review geplaatst van de Gigabyte GA-660 Plus, gebaseerd op de .22 micron TNT-Pro die in Turbo mode op 170/180MHz draait. Hieronder een gedeelte:
Gigabyte has produced a high quality TNT2 card once again. It also, coincidentally, is one of the first TNT2-Pro based cards to hit the market. If you are looking for a video powerhouse for your incredibly fast, new machine, this is not the card for you: opt instead for a GeForce or Rage Fury MAXX. However, for those of us where the CPU is not capable of keeping up with the newest GeForces, no incredible amount of speed will be gained by having a video card that can outperform the CPU.
As far as the TNT2 chips go, they have well proved themselves in the market and the TNT2-Pro seems to be no exception. If you simply want to upgrade your video card and do not want to spend massive amounts of cash, the GA-660 Plus is definitely the card for you. The GA-660 Plus is also a perfect match for those who have aging processors not capable of keeping pace with the current power of video cards now being unleashed. Just be wary of lesser quality Super7 motherboards, as they may not be able to put out the voltage required by such a fast video processor. As far as TNT2-Pro cards go, not many cards based on this chip are on the market now. However, if you are looking for one of these beasts, the Gigabyte, with its extremely high clock and memory speeds, is a very serious contender for the speed needy among us.
