GeForce 7600 GT: specs and benchmarks


Aggregate performance score

GeForce 7600 GT provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.56% of a leader's which is GeForce RTX 4090.


NVIDIA started GeForce 7600 GT sales 9 March 2006 at a recommended price of $199 . This is a Curie architecture desktop card based on 90 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 256 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.4 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 22.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 40 Watt.
