Um if you mean be slightly faster than sure the 6600 "Whoops" the X1400, Of course then the X700 "Whoops" the 6600 and the X1600 slaughters it, then burns it to ash, then pees on those ashes and makes a statue out of them, then blows that statue up with C4.
And of course all of that is before we get to Oblivion where ATI has the brutal beat down on Nvidia in hand. IE the X1600 Mobility will run it in 1024x768 medium low details, and the 6600 go will chug trying to run it in 800x600 low details.
Seriously though the 6600 go is Nvidia's last gen mid range part, the mobility X1400 and the mobility X1300 are ATI's current budget parts. Still the Acer 5672 scores around 1655 in 3dmark 2k5, with an X1400, and the thinkpad T60 with X1400 scores 2092 in 3dmark 2k5. Most 6600 Go laptops score around 2000~2300 points in 3dmark 2k5.
