Gainward announced that they begin manufacturing a new modification of their GeForce 8600 GT based graphics card for computer enthusiasts. It differs from the regular models not only by higher working frequencies, but also by a gigantic amount of onboard graphics memory: 1GB. This graphics card is called Bliss 8600 GT 1024MB TV DD and the remarkable thing about it is that no other Nvidia GeForce 8 series graphics solution can boast that much graphics memory, including the top of the family GeForce 8800 Ultra.

Such huge amount of onboard memory seems to have mostly marketing roots: a lot of users care for this particular feature. At the same time, the performance advantage provided by 1GB of video memory over the standard for GeForce 8600 256MB can hardly be critical for those video modes where the use of this GPU is justified. Large amounts of memory for texture storing are usually required in professional applications, but not 3D games.

Bliss 8600 GT 1024MB TV DD will come equipped with 1GB of DDR2 memory with 2ns access time working at 1GHz (2GHz) frequency. The chip will run at 600MHz speed. This way both: GPU and memory on this graphics card will be overclocked above their nominal speeds of 540/700MHz. the card will also be equipped with the brand name quiet dual-slot cooling solution.

Bliss 8600 GT 1024MB TV DD is expected to start selling next week and will be priced around $250.

Isn't it DD3? DDR2 can't clock that high.
