7600GT vs 8600GT - Page 2

post #11 of 72
Well the 8600GT does perform better. Just not by much. So if you can get an 8600GT for around the price of the 7600GT may as well get that.

At least 10 other reviews say the 8600GT is much better, plus the 8600-series is also designed for HD contents so media PCs would find it very useful. Remember, nVidia dropped the "GS" branding, thus the 8600GT is the mainstream "GS" of the range where GTS is the "GT".

To be honest that's the only review I've seen where it gets beaten by the 7600GT so I would be weary.

I trust this review more so. http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=2975&p=1

regardless it's pretty much 40-50 bucks more and at that price the 7900GS will own the GT...especially when both are overclocked.

DX10 or not I wouldn't want to try to play many DX10 games with a card like the 8600GT anyway...

a 7900GS does not own the 8600GT, sorry to burst your bubble, the updated drivers solved some issues, look at user reviews, or my own review and comments post here, its at least 1000points faster in 3dm06 and 2000points in 3dm05, and gets 18k in 03. In truth the 8600GT is faster now that drivers where fixed for it, the 8600GTS will keep up in shader enviroments with the 1950XT/7900GTO while the 8600GT can keep up with the 7900GS/1950pro cards.

also to everyone saying expect very little in DX10 preformance from these cards, has no real idea, they didnt bother to do any real research on DX10 level coding, and are unaware that DX10 is rewritten and the code is better optimized, it takes less power to run DX10 graphics than it does DX9 graphics of the same quality because of how the entire engine was rewritten, but unless you take the time to do the respearch you wouldnt know this.


also let me add this, the current nvidia line up compares like this preformance wise

7300GT > 8500GT > 7600GS >7600GT >7800GT >7900GS > 8600GT> 7900GT > 7950GT > 7900GTO > 8600GTS > 7900GTX > 7950GX2 > 8800GTS > 8800GTX > 8800Ultra
