The GeForce 6200 WinFast PX6200TC TDH from Leadtek

On Figures 2 and 3 you can check GeForce 6200 TurboCache with 16 MB and 32-bit interface from Leadtek. As you can see, this video card uses a passive heatsink (i.e., without a fan).

We removed the heatsink to take a look at the memory chip, and as you can see in Figure 4, this card uses just one 128-Mbit memory chip.

This video card uses just one DDR 128-Mbit 2.8 chip from Hynix (HY5DU283222AF28), making its 16 MB video memory (128 Mbits x 1 = 16 MB). This chip can run up to 700 MHz. Since this video card accesses the memory at 700 MHz there is no room for memory overclocking inside the memory’s specifications. But of course you can try overclock it over its specs.

It is really interesting to notice how the video memory is running at 700 MHz on this card, compared to 500 MHz or 550 MHz used on other GeForce 6200 models. We think that was done to offset a little the performance impact caused by the use of only 16 MB of video memory.
