Default Galaxy 8600Ge Video Card Overclocking Review

How can you differentiate yourself as video card manufacturer in a crowded market? Galaxy decided to add extra cooling and apply very high factory overclocked speeds to their 8600 GT based products which they call the 8600 GE. Coming close to speeds of the more expensive 8600 GTS we find out if this video card is worth your money if you are looking for a budget-minded VGA upgrade.

Not available in the U.S yet?
Why destroy a perfectly good running card; it would be like driving a new car at 50mph into a brick wall to see how much the bumper can withstand.
I guess the answer could be "because we can".

I think Galaxy is mainly EU for now; if they can squeeze out maximum performance, and sell 8600 GTS performance card at 8600 GT price-tag, I don't see nothing wrong

Is it possible that there is a typo in the Specifications chart?

The 8600GE and 8600GT are listed as having the same Memory Bandwidth and Texture Fill Rate, which logically can't be right.
