The card offers two (x2) DVI-D outputs and one S-Video output.

The G73 core on the GeForce 7600 GT measures just 125 x 125mm, in contrast to the original G70 core which measured 334 x 334mm. The 90nm die process has reduced overall heat production and allows higher frequencies. Lavasys Everest Ultimate Edition 2006 gives us further details about chipset features:

MSI has used Infineon DDR3 memory chips, rated at 700Mhz
