eVGA GeForce 7600 GS: Grope It For A While

Anyone that has contemplated purchasing an NVIDIA video card in the last 5 years has likely considered an EVGA card. They’re always on warranty, concerned and are on mostly every forum even if it is slightly hardware related.

Looking at our card we see that the PCB is a standard green with a nice looking black heatsink. The EVGA logo is prominently displayed along with the type of card it is, so that no one, not even you, will forget what you have. I do like this for the simple fact that you won’t make a mistake this for a 7600 GT or something else. Lurking under that heatsink is the GPU core, clocked at 400MHz, the reference speed for 7600 GS cards. I noticed that EVGA uses all solid aluminum capacitors on this card, which can help give it a longer life over standard electrolytic capacitors. The 512MB of memory comes clocked at 400MHz also.

Benchmark – R6: Vegas

Team Rainbow is a multinational task force comprised of counterterrorism experts from around the globe. Equipped with state-of-the-art weapons, Team Rainbow is deployed during terrorist crises. When all other attempts have failed, Rainbow is brought in to save the lives of innocent people. They do not negotiate with terror. They destroy it. Vegas is a video card killer that depends more on shaders speed than memory speed. Our 7600 GS has a hard time keeping up in Vegas and you may need to drop down the resolution to get playable frame rates depending on your definition of playable.

I'm all about one thing: reviews that are easy to understand and make sense of.
