I just read that there is a new 6600 that uses DDR2 clocked at 400mhz. Apparently Nvidia released this new design to combat the new lowend ATI cards. Now my question is this... is 400mhz DDR2 supposed to be better the 550mhz DDR? In other words, how is this card better then current 6600's?

Here is a link to the story.

No, DDR2 is the sux0rz.. Regular DDR is better (lower latency).
