GeForce 8 Streams to the Mainstream
Today we are taking a look at the G86, the GeForce 8600 GTS, which can boast DirectX 10 support, high image quality, modern micro-architecture and low power consumption. But how fast is it in contemporary games? Letís find out together by taking a look at one of the first mainstream-class DX10 graphics cards on the market Ė Asustek EN8600 GTS.

Farcry with AA: 8600GTS trails 7900GS
Facry with HDR: 8600GTS is in front

FEAR: 8600gts is very slow
STALKER: on par with X1950Pro
HITMAN: on par with X1950Pro
Neverwinter Nights 2: impressive at lower resolutions, but falls behind the rest once 1600x1200 is hit
Oblivion: nice lead
RTS games: on par with X1950Pro

all in all, a new midrange product mostly onpar/trailing last generation midrange products, is disappointing, and at a steeper price, it doesn't have much going for it.
