BFG lives up to their reputation again. This GeForce 8600GT based card comes with 256MB of super fast GDDR3 memory. Designed to be used with GDDR3 memory, it can also run with the previous generation GDDR2, albeit more slowly. You might save money going with another brand, but your video performance could be up to 80% faster if you had gone with a GDDR3 based card.
Along with startlingly fast memory, BFG overclocked the GPU from 540MHz to 565MHz for maximum speed. The memory clock runs at a fast 1400MHz, so the card is screaming no matter how you look at it. All this power and speed could cause heat issues, but the ThermoIntelligence fansink keeps the GPU up to 18°C cooler than with the reference cooling system.
Two dual-link DVI-I ports with HDCP support let you attach today’s biggest monitors or TVs. There's also an S-Video port for component video connections. And what are you going to do with the large monitors besides watch movies in HD? Play the latest DX10 video games, of course! BFG brings it altogether for a tour-de-GeForce card!
