The World’s Fastest 8600GT is Also the Coolest.

The XFX 8600GT Fatal1ty Professional Series Graphics Card Makes Its Debut at Computex Taipei

Ontario, Calif., June 5, 2007 – XFX raises the bar once again with the debut of its 8600GT Fatal1ty Professional Series Graphics Card. This second release in its partnership with Fatal1ty, the world’s best known video gamer, provides gaming enthusiasts with not only the fastest 8600GT, but also the coolest.
“This is another great graphics card that the Fatal1ty brand can be proud of,” says Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel. “The initial card from XFX became wildly popular due to the unique cooling technology and this card utilizes the same feature.”
Making its debut at Computex Taipei on June 5, the 8600GT Fatal1ty Professional Series graphics card is truly the best of the best, as the highest possible stable overclock version of the 8600GT series available to the general public. The card’s amazing speed makes it a deadly weapon in a gamer’s arsenal and is a logical extension of XFX’s World Gaming Tour theme at Computex.

The card also features Silent But Deadly (SBD) cooling technology. Created to dissipate heat without the need of a fan, SBD technology not only is a more effective cooling engine, it is far quieter and, since air and dust are not forced through the heatsink, helps eliminate clogged heatsinks, which can cause overheating.

Specifically, the SBD cooling transfers heat from the GPU to the heatsink above the GPU. From there heat is transferred through heat pipes to aluminum fins located behind the video card. This unique cooling solution spreads the heat into a wider surface area where it is air cooled.

Designed for Microsoft DirectX 10 and DirectX 9 gaming, the 8600GT Fatal1ty Professional Series cards deliver unparalleled levels of graphics realism and performance. NVIDIA GeForce® 8 Series GPUs are the current reference GPUs for DirectX® API development and certification. Full Shader Model 4.0 compliance ensures compatibility with DirectX 10 games.

NVIDIA® unified architecture with GigaThread™ Technology dramatically improves 3D game features creating more lifelike character animation and rich, immersive gaming environments. The NVIDIA Lumenex™ engine delivers incredible image quality and stunning High Dynamic Range (HDR) lighting effects with twice the precision of previous generations. High-speed memory interface and dual-link DVI outputs enable extreme HD gaming at resolutions up to 2560X1600.

NVIDIA Quantum Effects™ technology transforms hair, water and fabric movement, as well as smoke, fire and explosion effects into near- real-life experiences. These cards also are SLI™ ready, offer 16x full-screen anti-aliasing, and true 128-bit floating point high dynamic range (HDR) lighting.

The 8600GT Fatal1ty Professional Series cards also feature a new video processor that enables the ultimate Blu-Ray and HD DVD movie experiences. This is the world’s first video processor that can offload 100 percent of Blu-Ray and HD DVD movie playback from the CPU. NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology delivers outstanding picture clarity, ultra-smooth video, vivid color, and precise image scaling for movies and video.

This card is designed for Windows Vista Premium, and is essential for accelerating the Windows Vista Experience. The 8600GT enables faster desktop response time, supports multiple monitors and provides instant access to multiple open windows for more efficient multi-tasking.

With all these amazing features, it’s not hard to see how the world’s fastest 8600GT is also the coolest. To learn more about the XFX GeForce® 8600GT Fatal1ty Professional Series graphics cards, XFX or Fatal1ty, or to locate a participating e-tailer, go to
