Today we are taking a look at the G86, the GeForce 8600 GTS, which can boast DirectX 10 support, high image quality, modern micro-architecture and low power consumption. But how fast is it in contemporary games? Let’s find out together by taking a look at one of the first mainstream-class DX10 graphics cards on the market – Asustek EN8600 GTS.
Performance in Simulators
The X3: Reunion gaming engine has always favored the solutions from former ATI Technologies, now AMD, and our today’s test session is no exception. The new GeForce 8600 GTS, despite high working frequencies, could slightly outperform only GeForce 7900 GS. We believe it hardly makes any sense to use FSAA on this graphics card even in 1280x1024 resolution, because its average performance is only 40fps and minimal – 30-25fps. During outer space combat of X3 game high-precision troops control is very important for successful gameplay.
