Default Excellent mid-to-high end DX10 VGA solution-ELSA GLADIAC 860GT PH2 256B3

In April of 2007, NVIDIA launched 3 new products, GeForce 8600GTS/8600GT/8500GT,
not only to segment a different target market from 8800GTX/8800Ultra
but also take over the current market for GeForce 7900GS/7600GT/7300GT
In these months, mostly we can find the reviews of 8600GTS,
the top level of the series but it did not win much admire for
higher street price but common performance…
Let’s have a different main dish today, ELSA GLADIAC 860GT PH2,
the overclock version.
The standard frequency of NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT original design is
The frequency of ELSA GLADIAC 860GT PH2 is 600/800MHz

The main differences of 8600GT and 8600GTS are Core/Memory frequency,
PCB and independent power supply.
Because of these 2 models are in the same NVIDIA G84 technology, it is
possible to enable 8600GT the same performance as 8600GTS if in high
quality materials and critical fine-tune.
The key point is that 8600GT is much cheaper than 8600GTS…
At present time, 8600GTS is more expensive than 7900GS but the
performance is close to 7900GS
I think most people will not be convinced to have a 8600GTS…
On the contrary, it is reasonable for a high quality 8600GT to take over 7600
GT’s market even enabled high performance, close to 8600GTS and 7900GS.
I think 8600GT is enabled much more C/P value than 8600GTS and 8500GT.
ELSA GLADIAC 860GT PH2 is equipped with high quality cooling system and
GDDR3 Memory, the common component applied on 8600GTS, and enabled OC
performance but the street price is only about USD$ 10 higher than other
It enhanced ELSA GLADIAC 860GT PH2 more competitive in mid level VGA market

Calling 8600GT high end is being too optimistic
