nVidia 8600 GTS and 8600 GT - Foxconn and XFX

Overclocking

Overclocking

Unfortunately I wasn't as able to spend a lot of time overclocking the cards as I usually am but I did manage some pretty nice overclocks on the clocks using the nVidia control panel and NTune. Overclocks were verified by running a 3DMark06 run, of which I must confess the results have eluded me at this time.

 Stock
Clocks
Overclocked

Clocks
Overlocked
Memory Clock
XFX 8600 GTS "XXX" Edition  730 7752260 2270
Foxconn 8600 GTS
 675 7702000
2240
XFX 8600 GT "XXX" Edition  620 6701600
1900


So that adds up to the following:

overclocking 8600 gt and 8600 gts

The Foxconn card really did very well here managing a respectable 14% overclock on the core and 12% on the memory. The 8600 GTS is really seen as pushed to its limits here where it didn't manage much of an overclock (6% core and only about 10MHz memory). The 8600 GT does pretty well here, but the core clock is again quite pushed already.

Agreed, it really makes the card feel a little bit more special.

However at a £100 price-point you can't complain about the 8600 GT Quote
