NVIDIA's next-generation mid-range offerings are just 10 days away
Earlier this week review publications received their test kits for the GeForce 8300 through 8600. The bulk of these cards, the GeForce 8500 GT, GeForce 8600 GT and GeForce 8600 GTS will launch on April 17, with the GeForce 8300 GS and GeForce 8400 GS following soon after.
technical details of these cards last month
. In a nutshell:
GeForce 8600 GTS -- 256 MB GDDR3, 675 MHz core clock, 1000 MHz memory clock
GeForce 8600 GT -- 256 MB GDDR3, 540 MHz core clock, 700 MHz memory clock
GeForce 8500 GT -- 128 to 256 MB DDR2 or GDDR3, 450 MHz core clock, 700 MHz memory clock
NVIDIA claims these three cards will be available at launch. The 8600 GTS will fill the $199 to $229 price point, followed by the 8600 GT ($149 to $159) and the GeForce 8500 GT ($89 to $129).
The GeForce 8400 GS and 8300 GS will bring up the rear with 450 MHz core clocks and 400 MHz memory clocks. However, these two GPUs will only show up in OEM systems and will not likely make an appearance in your local hardware store.

1080p H264 decoding with one of these ?
4/7/2007 9:29:16 PM
Great news. I have been eying this bad boy, 8600GT :) Can this in a combo with Brisbane 3600+ decode 1080p BD/HDDVD ?
That 3600+ Brisbane at $65 is very tempting. Anybody think if overclocked @2.5GHz can decode 1080p BD/HDDVD with help from 8600GT? If yes, I could save some money & go with AMD ;)
If I have to go for E4300, probably I can get away with nvidia 7050 and won't need 8600GT. Any thoughts?
