Shootouts

12-Way NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS 256MB Shootout

By Vincent Chang - 8 May 2007

Overclocking

Overclocking

By an extremely slim margin, the best overclock went to the ASUS EN8600GTS TOP. It narrowly edged out both the Gainward and Leadtek in terms of 3DMark06 scores though. Overall, it seems that all the GeForce 8600 GTS we have seen are capable of around 750MHz for the core overclock. The weakest card is predictably the passively cooled Gigabyte, but given its characteristics and overclocking performance, it's pretty good in our opinion.
