Biostar Sigma-Gate VR8603TS21 GeForce 8600GTS Videocard Review

Biostar Sigma-Gate VR8603TS21 GeForce 8600GTS Videocard Review  - PCSTATS
Abstract: Biostar's Sigma-Gate and V-Ranger software allowed us to push that videocard to its max. Literally. The key to our overclocking Zen was adjustable GPU and memory voltage options.

3DMark06 results are similar to those in 3DMark05. The Biostar Sigma-Gate GeForce 8600GTS videocard is definitely very fast. Memory bandwidth is very important to the G84 core, so when the memory is heavily overclocked we get a nice boost in performance.
