Nvidia GeForce 8600 GTS didn’t become an equal rival to ATI Radeon X1950 Pro, but we all knew that overclocked modifications of this graphics adapter are destined to come one day. Today we are going to introduce to you one of these cards and will find out how much faster it is than the original solution. We will also touch upon the overclocking potential of Nvidia G84 based graphics accelerators in general.
Performance in Simulators
There is a significant increase in the average speed of the GeForce 8600 GTS which cannot be only due to the different configuration of our testbed. It must surely be the new driver. The minimum of speed has got lower, however, even though not below comfortable level. Thus, the GeForce 8600 GTS is now preferable to the Radeon X1950 Pro in the mainstream category when it comes to playing X3. This card allows playing at 1600x1200 with enabled FSAA. On the other hand, the Radeon X1950 Pro ensures a higher minimum of speed.
