Default Re: Help! Flickering textures and artifacts with brand new 6600GT

By the way...

The AGP variant of the 6600GT runs hotter than the PCIe version of the 6600GT.

Why?

There's an extra chip there called the "HSI" chip. It converts the internal PCIe signal to an AGP one. This makes the card run hotter than a standard PCIe version.

AGP and PCIe temperatures cannot be compared because of this.
