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.

Videocard Benchmarks: FEAR

Sierra FEAR 1.08

Source: Sierra

FEAR is Sierra's latest first person shooter which relies heavily on DirectX 9 features. With its "Soft Shadows" feature enabled, even the fastest videocards run at a crawl, FEAR is definitely the new benchmark for future FPS games to follow.

FEAR results place the Biostar Sigma-Gate GeForce 8600GTS in a decent light. With Soft Shadows enabled, all but the highest end videocards provide decent framerates, when heavily overclocked the Biostar card does pretty well.
