Verdict

This one from MSI is a very good, slightly cheaper alternative to our mid-range gold winner this year—the ASUS EN8600GT.

MSI NX8600GT T2D256E OC Edition (Gaming) detailed review

 


Overclocked, but not overpriced



The MSI NX8600GT follows MSI tradition with a fiery-red PCB. The single-slot cooling solution looks a little flimsy, but does the job well. The memory slots aren’t cooled, but we didn’t see that as an issue. The cooling solution itself is pleasing enough. MSI hasn’t used an all solid-state capacitor design here.

This version is overclocked; with a core speed of 580 MHz, it isn’t the highest overclocked 8600GT part we’ve seen, though. Of course, the credit goes to NVIDIA for creating such an overclockable core, but we’ve seen the ASUS EN 8600GT at a core speed of 650 MHz. MSI clocks memory at 1600 MHz, and the shaders themselves run at just over 1.5 GHz.
