GIGABYTE 8500GT Turbo Force Ultra

Shane takes a look at an 8500GT on steroids from GIGABYTE today; a quite capable card for gaming in fact.

Introduction

 

It's been a while since we have seen anything from GIGABYTE. The main reason for this isn't because they don't like us; rather the company tends to want to stand out from the pack when it comes to their products. Anyone can send us a graphics card with stock clocks and stock cooling but GIGABYTE always try to do something a bit different with their lineup of graphics cards.

 

The latest card to get the makeover treatment is the GIGABYTE 8500GT Turbo Force Ultra. The name alone sounds cool and has us so very intrigued, just imagine what the card is going to look like.

 

The 8500GT in base form isn't the card of choice for a lot of people, while it's cheap it's not much of a performer and if you're not going to game you would find yourself looking at the cheaper again 8400GS. If you do want to do a bit of gaming the extra money is usually worth being spent to enter the 8600 series.

 

Hopefully GIGABYTE has done big things with the 8500GT and it's something that we can find ourselves recommending to people.
