Biostar's Sigma Gate V8604TS51: double the memory of other 8600 GTS-based cards

Biostar's card is called the Sigma Gate V8604TS51. The board's GPU is clocked to the chip's default - 675MHz - but the memory's running at an effective 2GHz, double the speed Nvidia states on its website, but connected across the usual 128-bit bus.

The V8604TS51 has twin dual-link DVI ports and an s-video TV-out connector. The GPU can handle the HDCP anti-piracy technology, but since the board lacks an HDMI port, that's less relevant in this case. The card supports Nvidia's multi-card co-operation technology, SLI.

Biostar said the card will go on sale early next month for around €195 ($259/£131).
