ASUS GeForce 8600 GTS

ASUS today demonstrated its eagerness by prematurely revealing its first mid-range GeForce 8-series card on the web. Dubbed simply the EN8600GTS, the board will use NVIDIA's GeForce 8600 GTS chipset to bring all of the 8-series' features to a lower price, including 128-bit color and a unified shader model. A 675MHz core and 2GHz effective memory speed are confirmed by the news.

The particular card arriving from ASUS will carry 256MB of memory and dual DVI outputs with HDCP encryption for certain Blu-Ray and HD DVD movies. ASUS also promises bundled adapters for HDTVs and VGA displays, and optionally ships the card with a copy of Stalker. Pricing is unknown but should reach the $230 mark expected for the official release tomorrow, when the EN8600GTS and other cards should become available.
