GeForce 8600 GT Asus Magic 512MB DDR2 Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce 8600 GT Asus Magic 512MB DDR2 is a special edition of the middle-class GeForce 8600 GT.
It features DDR2 instead of DDR3 meaning it has less memory bandwidth due to the operating memory clock being lower while consuming more power since DDR3 is more energy efficient. The central unit runs at the same speed (540MHz) but this GPU feature a custom cooling solution which is 16 degrees cooler than the reference cooler, according to Asus.
Expect its performance to be on level with the reference card despite its lower bandwidth although the performance will be significantly lower when using 3D applications and settings that require extra bandwidth.
