Biostar debuts double-the-memory GeForce 8600 GTS card

World first, firm claims

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Updated Mobo maker Biostar has launched what it claims is the first Nvidia GeForce 8600 GTS-based graphics cards fitted with 512MB of GDDR 3 memory. Interesting, particularly since Nvidia states the 8600 GTS only supports 256MB of memory...

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).
