PNY Announces GeForce 8600 GTS

With ASUS officially announcing that it's set to release a card based on NVIDIA’s GeForce 8600 a couple of days ago, PNY has followed this by revealing that it is about to do the same. Unfortunately though, there are not as many details about PNY’s card as there were about ASUS’s, other than that it will be an 8600GTS with 256MB of GDDR3 memory. Possibly more interestingly though, PNY has also let slip that the 8600 itself will be launched tomorrow – the company confirmed that its card will go on sale in PC World stores in the UK on April 17th, whilst also commenting that "graphics card will be immediately available to consumers from the date of launch of the product by NVIDIA,” essentially confirming that NVIDIA is launching the new GPU tomorrow (as previously rumoured). This will be the first of the mid-range DirectX 10 cards to be released to consumers.Source: Reg Hardware

For all I know it may even be on Newegg tomorrow - the article I used only gives PC World as an example (the site is based in the UK) and I expect there will be plenty of other stores.

Sorry that wasn't to your article, I was responding to WarEagleAU's comment about it being a pitty that it was only being released in the UK stores on opening day.
