Manufacturers to Introduce GeForce 8600/8500 Series Video Cards

Instead of writing all the boring press releases, I've decided to gather all the manufacturers who will launch new GeForce 8600 and GeForce 8500 Series graphics cards in one post and keep it up to date. I'll start with the BFG Technologies and their BFG NVIDIA GeForce 8600GTS(710/2000MHz), 8600GT(565/1400MHz) and 8500GT(450/800MHz) overclocked OC 256MB video cards. The BFG NVIDIA GeForce 8600GTS OC graphics cards are available today while the 8600GT OC and 8500GT models will be available in late April. Second comes GIGABYTE with its Silent-Pipe brand new video cards. The GIGABYTE GV-NX85T256H, GIGABYTE GV-NX86S256H with Silent Pipe 3 and GIGABYTE GV-NX86T256D graphics accelerators are available from today. VR-Zone also reports that Point of View and Leadtek have come up with the new 8600/8500 series. Biostar is also introducing its Sigma Gate V8603TS21, V8603GT21, V8502GT21 NVIDIA GeForce 8600/8500 Series based video cards. Last but not least for today is Zotac International with the ZT-88XE760-FSS, ZT-88SE320-FPP, ZT-85TE250-FSL and ZT-85TE25H-FSL video cards.

Good idea - otherwise we're going to end up with a lot of press releases!

There have been quite a few news posts about releases, but this page has the prices just above the images (although they don't seem to have formatted correctly). Ebuyer does have them listed now, I think the prices are around £140 for us guys in the UK.

Too many press releases from manufacturers on the same product is overkill. I kind of expected BFG to factory OC from the get go.

It was said that the 8600GTS was going to go for $200, but I cant see that staying there for too long.
I mean you could get an 8800GTS for $250 these days.

thanks, thats a bit pricey, I would reckon that as soon as R600 variations hit the shelves prices will probably drop by 20%.
