NVIDIA GeForce 6600GT

Moving up to a GeForce 6600GT the experience was much more appealing. In this system we had used a PCI Express GeForce 6600GT with 1GB of RAM and an AMD Sempron 3400+ processor running once again Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn at 1280 x 1024. With minimal desktop effects the system would idle about 75 frames per second and even when we had begin utilizing the demanding water effects we had seen the frame-rate spike at just over 70 FPS. The lowest we had seen the frame-rate go with Beryl 0.2 and the 6600GT was about 30 FPS. Graphics cards in the GeForce 6 series or newer is where Beryl begins to shine on NVIDIA hardware.
