Default New CS Source benches (6600GT VS x700Pro an XT)

http://firingsquad.com/hardware/coun...rike_source_2/

Seems the 6600GT smacks around the X700 cards at the highest resolutions with AA/AF enabled.

I would post this at Rage, but don't feel up to the abuse I would probably take

The 6600gt seems to take none or verry little hit on performance when enabeling AF

Wow thats really impressive

6600GT is going to be the best deal of the year I think. Especially if it stays around $200 (or lower) for the AGP version.

That is really a sweet card. Looks to beat the 6800gt in price/perf ratio this yr.

I don't think it will. Remember the bridge chip is not free, im sure it will add to the cost. My guess is that the AGP version will be ~$220 with the PCIe version staying at $200.

Wouldn't the AGP version be cheaper because isn't it the new technology of pci-e that is causing a price premium if anything?

If you remember FS last CS bench marks both the GT and Ultra 6800 lost very little going from noAA/noAF to x4AA/x16AF at 1600x1200 thus its not a trait of the 6600 cards more so of all the NV40 cards...
