EVGA Geforce 8600GTS tested

Review: Default speed can overclock

 
EVGA has two versions of the 8600 GTS cards. We got the reference clocked part with a €200 price tag while there is a bit more expensive card clocked at 720 MHz core and 2100 MHz memory.

The card we got is clocked at 675 MHz core and 2016 MHz memory. I guess that bios clocked the card at this speed. It has 32 Shader units clocked at massive 1450 MHz and eight ROPs. As with every 8600 GTS / GT card the card is limited to 128 bit memory interface.

The card is not that special and it is based on Nvidia's reference design. It comes in a modest box and 10 years limited warranty so this is the hard point of the card. It has a green PCB and two DVI outs, SLI connector, single slot cooler in black, and six pin PCIe power in. The box looks nice and small and EVGA offers a 90 days step up program where you can upgrade your graphic card within 90 days after the purchase.

The box includes two DVI dongles, S-video cable and CD with drivers. There were no games inside.
