Default 8600 Series

NVIDIA's specs for the 8600 Ultra and GT look really sweet. Not to mention the price range is right on the money. These cards look like they are going to be an OCer's dream.

The specs aren't anything to sneeze at, either, with both 8600 cards being built with an 80nm process and 300 million transistors. The GT runs at 350MHz, with 256MB of RAM to call its own, while the Ultra sports a 500MHz core, with 512MB of memory. The launch is supposedly timed to coincide with the R600's launch, will certainly steal a bit of ATI's thunder.
