Asus V6600 SDRAM provided by Data Privat


Originally a manufacturer of quality motherboards, ASUS made the transition into the video card market with a card that almost revolutionized an industry: the TNT based V3400. It was the first time that a Taiwanese company successfully spread from spread from one very skilled area of design, motherboards, to another, video cards and was able to sell these cards at the larger computer stores and maintain product quality. This formula spelled big success for ASUS, which could now appeal to not only system makers but also to hard core gamers.

ASUS has continued this tradition of high quality of card manufacturing as can be seen in their GeForce based V6600 SDRAM (internally named the V6600 TF), a board that contains the quality that we at the lab have come to expect from ASUS.
