Well if you do buy a Single Data Rate card, The V6600 Deluxe is it!!
It uses SGRAM (faster than SDRAM) witch makes it the fastest SDR card on the market!!
Its 5 ns instead of 6ns!
It has one of the best features sets and it will play DVD nicley!
but it wont support really high res. as fast as the DDR and it may be a bit more slower on slower CPU's
It will have a lower fill rate than the DDR card but it will still have all the features and most the stats are the same. (you have to download the security program!)
It is still a great purchase, faster than other SDR cards but not as fast as DDR cards at high Res.
E me for more!
Have you seen everything on the ASUS web page (probally eh? you know this stuff as well as I do!)

well i ordered the 6600 deluxe will be here tom.. im gonna run it with my 500e @ 700 or 750. Doya think that will work out fine for me???? the card i got now wont run games past 667 but runs all other apps. fine very stable...I hope the 6600 dekuxe will run at these higher speeds
Hey, DEAN. Haven't seen you in a while but then I haven't been in the vid card forum for a while either.
Anyway, what hardware911 may have been asking and what I'm wondering myself is whether or not you can see a noticeable difference between the two.
I should know the answer to this as I have a DDR GeForce and an SDR one but I've been too busy to actually compare the two. But playing the games that I do (TFC mostly), I didn't notice much difference between the Hercules TNT2u and the GeForce SDR except for some of the visual defects that the GeForce sometimes exhibits. I have Quake 3 and started to do some benches but got bored quickly and wanted to frag instead. Can you tell the difference?
Salmoneus do you think the v6800 will preform well on a k6-2 450MHz, just until I can upgrade my CPU (video card comes first because i can't even play current games with my card I have now! I need a new one bad and im getting the one that will last the longest!)
its in now but didnt play around yet...but i did launch a game and the screen took a funny shape to it like a n hour glass...not on desk top but only on game will play more tom... let ya know how it is ok
Hey G13,nice to see you too,i dont have both,unlike you,i can only go by benches,but from what benches i have seen,1024x768 and above you really see the ddr shine and leave the sdr WAY behind.On my k63-460 i play quake 3 very nicely online at 1280x1024.And as you can see in 32 bit(the only way to go)its doing 62 and the sdr is doing 42 so 20fps is ALOT,I guess in hardware the processors are getting way fast and the new bottle neck is memory bandwidth,and the ddr is double that of the sdr and it really shows,i cant wait to get my hands on a mother board using ddr,its really going to fly.
