I'm having a hard time figuring out which card is faster. Hope you Guru's can help me :)

I'm still on AGP. Looking to upgrade. Any difference in clock Pci vs AGP on these. Which is faster. All cards cards are 100$+ in my country,

3 AGP Cards of interest:


6600GT
6600GS
6800GS
7600GS


Thanx in advance

I'm thinking the 7600GS would be equal to if not faster than the 6800GS. 7600GS would be my choice. Can't beat the 7 series right now.

Thanx for reply.

Can you link to any tests that show this ?

How fast is 7600gs in comparison to old ATI 9800pro which is the card I currently own ?

No probs

7600gs seems to just edge out 6800gs in most

A 7600GS should a be fair bit faster than a 9800Pro. Found this on AnandTech

i have both a 9800pro and a 7600GS AGP. In newer games that are shader heavy, the 7600GS keeps up pretty well, while the 9800pro falls apart. However, in slightly older games (bf2 and prior, for example) they're fairly close. 3dmark scores paint the picture pretty well:

3dmark05: 7600GS=3871; 9800PRO=2825
3dmark06: 7600GS=2067; 9800PRO=813

The 9800pro gets raped hard on 06.

Thanx so much for your response.
I'm all the wiser now :-)

The 7600GS has less texture fillrate/mem bandwidth than the 6800GS , but more shader power.
so the 7600GS wins.
