As close to perfection as it gets! BLISS 8600GTS 256MB DD Golden Sample BLISS 8600GTS 256MB DD

Malmoe, Sweden – Gainward, a world leading producer of High – Quality, High – End 3D accelerators for the Personal Computer market, proudly announces today the release of its new BLISS 8600GTS products which are part of the complete line of reality redefining NVIDIA® GeForce 8® Series.

Asskicking performance has a name – BLISS 8600GTS Golden Sample® by Gainward. With a graphics realism and performance that blows you out of your gaming chair. BLISS 8600GTS Golden Sample® may increase your gaming addiction. Therefore we are forced to issue a WARNING due to fact that Gainward´s Extreme Gaming Performance May Be Addictive. Don´t worry we will make sure it is. Get a BLISS 8600GTS Golden Sample®, make your buddies go green with envy and watch them rush to the nearest Gainward reseller to get one as well.

Each of the two BLISS 8600GTS models from Gainward offer unparalleled graphics realism and performance, unsurpassed Blu]ray and HD DVD movie picture quality with PureVideo™ HD Technology and full support for Windows Vista and DirectX10.

Both our BLISS 8600GTS – products feature carefully hand selected high performing GeForce® 8600GTS GPU from NVIDIA®. Though carefully selected, not all GPU´s are able meet Gainwards requirements. Before mounting a GPU on a Golden Sample® product, we perform rigorous testing to ensure that the GPU is capable to perform to our requirements amongst which are 725MHz core clock out of the box.

1,0ns DD3 high performance modules from Samsung allow an additional 10% extra performance increase, enabling us to run the BLISS 8600GTS Golden Sample® at 1,1GHz instead of 1GHz (reference board). Not only does the 1,0ns modules offer higher performance but it also ensures a more stable and safe environment for the over clocking enthusiasts. Notice that we use same memory modules for the non Golden Sample® version of BLISS 8600GTS as on the Golden Sample® version.

The two – slot bracket cooling solution used on the BLISS 8600GTS models offer a higher air flow compared to a one – slot bracket solution and is therefore allowing a healthier environment for higher performance. Dust and Static electricity reduces the lifetime reduces the lifetime of a graphics card; the fan cover is used as an Anti –Dust and Anti – Static protector prolonging the lifetime of the card. The 80mm fan (70mm for non Golden Sample version) spinning at 2400rpm is cooling both the GPU and the memories with a noise level at 33,5dB compared to 35,2dB from the 4800rpm used on the NV 8600GTS reference boards; which is almost half the audible level in comparison.

All the capacitors for Input/output of core and memory power are OS – Con capacitors from Japanese manufacturers.

DVI-I plus HDTV features enables to drive the largest and highest resolution flat]panels up to 3840x2400 @30Hz with crisp clear image quality.
