i dont like the 8600 gts its has an horrible cooler like the 8800gts/gtx

this means i will not have a 256bit :?
March 11, 2007 2:13:05 PM

the cooler on the 88s are pretty good
March 11, 2007 2:15:58 PM

One thing I noticed on the gt model, No pci express power plug.
Maybe is on the underside, but I kind of doubt it. That alone will boost sales. No new psu to buy.

What do you think this will do to the price of the 8800gts?
March 11, 2007 3:09:44 PM

So is this thing's gonna beat the hell out of the 8800GTS that I just got and haven't even installed yet? Tell me the truth!!!! :cry:

You are not going to buy a GPU because the cooler isnt pretty enough for you? :/

Where do you see HDMI?

I see two DVI and one 7pin video-out header, a 6 pin power connector, and a single SLi header like the X88GTS.

who cares if its 128bit, i think gfx cards specs is overrated.its the performance and benchmark that matters. x1950xtx might be using ddr4 but a ddr3 8800gtx smokes it.

still, the 2000mhz memory is FAST!

GDDR4 is known to have little or no speed advantage over GDDR3 however it is well known the the Memory Bus width is a very important factor for performance. IMO 128bit is a waste of time however this generation of cards has pretty highly clocked memory so I spose that makes up for it. Benchmarks are what matters bet specs matter to as you can get an understanding of how good the benchies will be from them :D  .

GeForce 8600GT

The GPU used is labelled G84-300. The GPU clock runs at 540MHz and GDDR3 at 1400MHz. G84 does not support HDCP. There is another version G84-305 comes with HDCP support.

The card looks like the normal 7600GT. THere is no 6 pin aux power connector. There is two DVI-I and a SLI connector Slot on top.

LOL!

Dude way to contradict yourself in the same post.

"Who cares about bitwidth; the XTX has GDDR4 (256bit), and the GDDR3 (384bit) 8800GTX smokes it. "

Nice!

Perhaps your argument would be more compelling if the GTX were the same bitwidth, and equally fast or slower overall bandwidth GDDR3. Now had you picked the GTS, at least the overall bandwidth would be the same.

Not to mention the core differences. :roll:

The fans on those prototypes look like little noisemakers, like the one on my 9800pro hah. Let's hope there are some good aftermarket coolers on the way from AC or Zalman.
March 12, 2007 3:53:21 PM

i find the cooler on the gt pretty cool
looks like it s from the 60's

Personally, I doubt either of these 8600's will keep up with the X1950XTX. That's alot to ask for a 128-bit card.

arent the 86 ultras suppose to be 256-bit?
hell i cant remember :oops: 

ever since i got the 8800 i havent paid anymore attention.

They were rumored to be back at the initial Hong Kong article in January or was it December, but all of the more recent articles have claimed the mid/entry level 8xxx series are 128-bit.
March 12, 2007 11:56:28 PM

i think Nvidia dont liked the idea of 8600 ultra , its likely to be to damn close to the 8800 gts 320mb


here have a bonus : the nvidia 8500 gt , it outperforms last generation 7600gs, its 128-bit and 256mb ddr2
