So you want to go down the HDMI route but you want something that packs a little bit more punch than the HD 2600 which we've looked at from Palit. In the home theater department there isn't a single card I can praise more than this particular model, it's got a bit of power behind it, enough for some lower resolution gaming along with pre-overclocked specs.
It's cheap as well, but we all knew that NVIDIA was getting ready to mix it up in the HDMI department and the first company we see enter it is TwinTech who seem to be predominately a European company who has entered the ever competitive Australian market through a local distributor.
Like Palit, TwinTech have also chosen to go down the overclocking route to get a bit more power out of the 8600GT core. Can the first card we've seen from TwinTech leave us with a smile on our face or will it just be another video card that gets thrown in the pile of cards that 'could've been'.
There's only one way to find out so let's start with the package and venture forth from there.
