News has reached my inbox that MSI has officially launched their GeForce 8600 GTS, GT and GeForce 8500 GT based graphics cards. I expect similar announcements from other graphics cards makers will follow later today and that the web will be flooded with reviews.
MSI launched five DirectX 10 compatible graphics cards:
NX8600GTS-T2D256E-HD-OC Overclocking Edition, HDCP support
NX8600GTS-T2D256EZ-HD Heat-pipe Solution (Zero Noise), HDCP support
NX8600GT-T2D256EZ Heat-pipe Solution (Zero Noise)
NX8600GT-T2D256E-OC Overclocking Edition
The first two cards with the "HD" extension in their name support HDCP. The overclocking editions are overclocked from 675MHz to 690MHz and have 1050MHz memory instead of 1000MHz memory.
