Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT vs. 7600 GT

Posted on Tuesday, April 24 2007 @ 04:59:09 CEST by

Now that the new GeForce 8600 GT graphics cards are out and about at just $170 US are you considering upgrading? For those with GeForce 7600 GT graphics cards the idea of an 8600 GT sounds like an excellent excuse to upgrade, but is it worth your time? Legion Hardware finds out...

The 8600 GT is a joke in my opinion and does not deserve to be part of the x600 GT series. If anything, what we have see here today should have been performance delivered by the 8500 GT, not the 8600 GT. The results really spoke for themselves, as the GeForce 8600 GT was 12% slower in Far Cry, 17% slower in F.E.A.R, 7% slower in X3: Reunion and 19.5% slower in Company of Heroes. The only two games that the 8600 GT came out on top in was Prey (15.5%) and Supreme Commander (27.5%), making a two out of six effort very poor indeed.

Check it out over here.
