BRAND NEW FLAGSHIP RELEASED BY NVIDIA!
 
This time we have the brand new 8600GTS from nvidia.
At first here are some technical specs about that beast of a card:
 
Based on the new G84 chip with 80nm manufacturing process size
The Die has a size of giant 169mm² with 289million transistors under the hood.
All these combined give a massive count of 32 Stream Processors - Pure power here again!
Furthermore this model has 512mb of gddr3 vram but also comes in 320 or 640mb versions.
The Memory is connected via a massive 128-bit bus resulting in a throughput of 32gb/s
It comes with a Core Clock of 675mhz, a Shader clock of 1450mhz and a Memory clock of 1000mhz.
This results in muhassive 139GFlops of computing power. Ideal for your folding or Mining rig aswell.
The card is cooled by a huge heatsink and an enormous 65mm fan.
It is also quite power hungry and needs an additional 6pin pcie connector sucking around 60w total at full load!
keep that in mind when purchasing, you need at least a 350w psu!
 
Here are some pictures for your to enjoy.
I cleaned of the thermal paste and replaced it with Arctics MX-2 for even better cooling.

ENOUGH theoretical stuff, lets talk benchmarks!
 
I'm benching this beast in a similarly beastly system to avoid any bottlenecks from anywhere.
Test rig is:
E6600 @ 2.4ghz
Asus P5B Premium Motherboard
Samsung HM320Ji HDD at 5400rpm
Corsair CX500M PSU
8gb of Geil Ram
And win7 64bit
The Graphics card is of course the 8600GTS 512mb from Palit.
 
And, because this card is just BEAST we run everything on max settings, 1080p.
 
HEAVEN 4.0 // Everything Max 1080p just Tessellation disabled
Score: 26. I dont think i've seen a score that high yet. Can your gt705 beat THAT? I think not.
Avrg. FPS 1
Max. FPS 1,3

VALLEY 1.0 // ExtremeHD, all max!
Score : 43. This Benchmark really shows the strenght of that chip, incredible!
Avrg. FPS 1
Max. FPS 1,2
 
pI8KMzU.png
 
 
3d Mark Scores
 
Cloud Gate P Score of 2599 - simply amazing!
 
Ice Storm P Score of 31188 - First time ever a single gpu rig surpasses the 30k mark!
 
Unfortunately Fire Strike failed because it uses the older DX11 Standard so our new DX10
card wasnt able to run that.

Vantage Basic P Score of 2290, Graphics Score of 2000 and CPU Score of 4055
 
 
Catzilla
Because i dont own the Benchmark i had to use the basic settings (576p)
But i achieved an amazing score of 901 which boosted me up to #2155 of all Catzilla 
Benchmarks ever made - impressive!

 

 

 

Game Benchmarks!

Explaining the Benchmarkin process:

I either used the ingame benchmark or made 3 runs, recorded fps with fraps and took the average of everything

 

Starting off with the most amazing game of all time, Minecraft! Maximum Settings, 1080p

 

Min. fps  0

Max. fps 62

Avg. 38

 

-> You can easily play with game even maxed out! :)

 

 

Next up, Far Cry 3 in Max Settings, 1080p but w/o MSAA

Min. fps 4

Max. fps 8

Avg. fps 6.5

 

Lowest Settings 1080p

Min. fps 9

Max. fps 15

Avg. fps 11

 

Lowest Settings 1600x900

Min. fps 13

Max. fps 19

Avg. fps 15

 

 

Lowest Settings 800x600

Min. fps 28

Max. fps 51

Avg. fps 38

 

-> Here again, playig like a charm!

 

 

Next game is Bioshock Infinite, using built in benchmark tool

 

Max Settings, 1080p

Min. fps 3.6

Max. fps 13

Avg. fps 8.7

 

Very Low, 1080p

Min. fps 10

Max. fps 100

Avg. fps 19.4

 

Very Low, 720p

Min. fps 14.6

Max. fps 307

Avg. fps 35

 

-> Bioshock Infinite is no Problem for that beast of a card at all!

 

 

Next Game is Metro Last Light, using the built in Benchmark again.

 

Max Settings, 1080p, PhysX, SSAA only w/o Tesselation

Min. fps 0.7

Max. fps 11.8

Avg. fps 1.7

 

Very Low, 1080p everything special disabled

Min. fps 2.7

Max. fps 30.4

Avg. fps 9

 

Very Low, 720p everything special disabled

Min. fps 5.7

Max. fps 37.8

Avg. fps 18

 

Very Low, 1024x768 everything special disabled

Min. fps 4.9

 

Max. fps 38.8

Avg. fps 19.3

 

 

-> As you can see, not even Metro LL is a problem for the 8600gts

 

 

Finally i have some Temps for you guys.
 
The card idles at around 47°C which in itself isnt that great but considering it only goes up
another 10°C when under full load (55-60°C) you can really see the efficiency of that chip!
 
ALSO the card runs almost completely silent due to its amazing fan!

Well, my fan seems to be broken so i had to gheddo attache a 140mm fan to it. Amazingly 
thought through by the folks over nvidia and palit! Imho every manufacturer should
adopt this technology!

Here you can see the cooling solution i chose
VDVfznS.jpg
 
 
Conclusion.
 
For only a little over 200$ you get the best bang for the buck currently available!
If you have the money, this is the way to go.
As seen in the benchmarks, you can max out everything you want and still enjoy steady and high
frame rates.
The only thing i would recommend for really extreme usecases is taking the 640mb version because
i saw the vram usage getting up pretty high!
 
Pros:
- BEAST performance
- Cool'n'Quiet
- Looks badass
- SLI Capable (if you want really insane power!)
- All the newest Video Outputs
- DX10
 
 
Cons:
- Consumes a lot of Power
- Pricey


I hope you enjoyed my review of the new nvidia flagship. If so, leave me a like, leave comments or do whatever you think is the right thing to do! :P


Take my results with a grain of salt, i actually dont really recommend buying this card lol.
I couldnt get the card to give me fps over 10 in Valley even when everything was turned down (still 1080p though)
It was still really fun benching this card :D
Would be cool if anyone else here has a similarly old card to do these benchmarks with so we can compare results ;)

That is one sexy 65nm chip! And that pink DVI port!

Its actually 80nm bro! :D But yeah, its so schmexy *-*

Actually thought it would run hotter

No no, the cooling solution is a beast!

Can it run crysis?

Of course. It beats Heaven like charm so Crysis shouldnt be a problem at all!

Intel HD 2000 come at me bro LOL.

 

Actually this would outperform HD 2000 easily.

 

The 8600GTS is somewhat slower than my old MacBook Pro's Geforce GT 320M (i know they didn't want HD 2000 so they used the 320M instead on a last gen Core 2 Duo since they couldn't fit a discrete GPU into the thermal envelope).

 

Good thing that I don't use that any more, but surprisingly good experience in Borderlands 2 actually (medium settings @720p)

 

It is impressive how much these things have advanced over the last few years. The 8600GTS has 32 CUDA cores (if they could be called that). The equivalent product today, the GTX 760 has around 1500!

Do you think so?

I only have HD3000 here to test ^^

you could gheddo mount one. I installed a 140mm red led fan with it. Looks sick!

True. Its simply amazing how far technology went. Its still not quite where i want it to be but pretty epic indeed! ;)

Yeah Intel HD 2000 is really bad...

 

Actually, I just checked. 139GFLOPS for the 8600GTS, not bad actually (this is as fast as my iPad Mini's PowerVR GPU).

 

HD 2000 is probably slower than that...:P seriously though.

Dude are you kidding you shouldn't have tested it in 1080p you should have tested it in 4k or render a upsampled 4k video this thing is a beast when you can use it to it's full potential esipcially the 4K man the thing is a beast because of that 512mbs of GDDR3 you have plenty of room for and extra 7 or 8 4K monitors the thing can even also cool my room.

The 8800GT was THE flagship card when Crysis came out in 2007

 

and the 8600GT was its less powerful brother, like what a 770 is to a 780ti - it did a decent job.

 

Obviously at the time nobody could run it on higest settings :P but it should do normalish settings on a standard resolution

Quite a cool retro review though


The most common result of insufficient wattage is a paperweight that looks like a PC
