Gainward, Albatron, Leadtek and Sparkle 

 

Today, every vendor that produce Nvidia based cards and means something, announced its 8x00 line of mid-range cards.

Gainward followed the trend and came out with two 8600 GTS and two 8600 GT based cards. All of them are looking sexy. We tested one of its Bliss 8600 GTS and you can read about it here. The other 8600 GTS is the Golden Sample version that is a bit overclocked. One of the 8600 GT is passively cooled.

Next in line is Albatron, three cards based on 8600 GTS, 8600 GT and 8500 GT. Nothing special about them, Albatron didn't go far from the reference design and cloked the cards as much as Nvidia recommended.

Leadtek did some more work and came up with total of five cards. The Extreme series from Leadtek has always been good.
