Inno3D GeForce 7600 GST Review

Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

GeForce 7600 GS is the simplest GPU from the new mid-range GeForce 7600 series from NVIDIA. Inno3D launched a highly overclocked model, dubbed GeForce 7600 GST, which promises to have a performance reaching GeForce 7600 GT. In this review we are going to compare the performance of this overclocked model from Inno3D with the regular GeForce 7600 GS, GeForce 7600 GT and also against other products available on the market.

GeForce 7600 GS normally runs at 400 MHz accessing its memory at 800 MHz (400 MHz DDR). GeForce 7600 GST from Inno3D runs at 500 MHz and accesses its memory at 1.4 GHz (700 MHz DDR), almost the same specs as GeForce 7600 GT, which runs at 560 MHz and also accesses its memory at 1.4 GHz. Since both chips share all other technical specs (like 12 pixel shader units), this model from Inno3D promises to have a performance level very close to GeForce 7600 GT but costing less. You can see this factory-overclocked video card from Inno3D in Figure 1.

We think the name Inno3D chose for this product – GST – was a very good choice. The name implies that this product isn’t a regular GeForce 7600 GS and, at the same time, it isn’t also a GeForce 7600 GT. While ”T“ probably stands for ”Turbo“, the name chosen may also suggest that this product has a performance level between GS and GT. This name is also great if you think that some manufacturers don’t label properly their overclocked models, making it very hard to correctly identify such models.

You can see in our tutorial ”NVIDIA Chips Comparison Table“ the difference between GeForce 7600 GS and the other chips from NVIDIA, while on our tutorial ”ATI Chips Comparison Table“ you can compare it to its competitors from ATI.

On Figures 2 and 3 you can see Inno3D GeForce 7600 GST.
