Sparkle GeForce 8500 GT and GeForce 8600 GT with 1GB

Posted on Wednesday, January 09 2008 @ 15:52:24 CET by

Sparkle is wasting memory on a series of new GeForce 8500 GT and GeForce 8600 GT graphics card with 1GB of DDR2 memory. That's way overkill for these GPUs but I guess it makes sense for them as unfortunately there are still a lot of people who will fall for this and think this is better than a GeForce 8800 GT with 256MB memory.
SPARKLE GeForce 8500 GT 1GB and GeForce 8600 GT 1GB Graphics Cards use most advanced DirectX 10 3D and shader Model 4.0 technology, cooperating with powerful new, extremely efficient, unified architecture in delivering unbelievable 3D power to drive latest DirectX 10 games, such as Crysis, to deliver ultra realistic gaming experience for mainstream gamers. Now amazing 1024MB onboard 1GB DDR2 video memory makes SPARKLE GeForce 8500 GT 1GB and GeForce 8600 GT 1GB Graphics Cards even more fast in rendering flowery DirectX 10 gaming scenes, efficiently satisfy the greedy appetite of DirectX 10 games on video memory.
