GeForce 7600 GST (Overclocked GeForce 7600 GS) From Inno3D

This video card uses four GDDR3 512-Mbit 1.4 ns chips from Infineon (HYB18H512321AF-14), making its 256 MB video memory (512 Mbits x 4 = 256 MB). These chips can run up to 1.4 GHz (700 MHz DDR). Curiously these are the same chips used by the NVIDIA reference model for GeForce 7600 GT and all GeForce 7600 GT models that follow NVIDIA reference model. As we mentioned, on this video card the memories are running at 1.4 GHz.

We removed its heatsink to take a look. It uses NVIDIA’s reference model, which is all copper-made, as you can see in Figure 5. The heatsink doesn’t touch the memory chips, so no cooling solution is used on the memory chips.

In Figure 6, you can see the GeForce 7600 GS chip used on this video card. As you can see, it is internally called G73-N by NVIDIA.
