    VVikoo graphics cards on Review!

    The Ultimate Shoot-out
    Two Graphics Cards Reviewed.


    It is not often in the PC Industry that we have a ‘newcomer’ in the Computer industry these days, with everyday names such, NVIDIA, ATI, AMD and INTEL dominating the scene. Today is one of those rare cases where we do have such a new entry into the market and what an entry they have made!

    Vviko Graphics cards.


    Who are Vvikoo and WHY haven’t we heard of them?

    [
    CENTER]Vvikoo may be new company just started this last year, however they do have a strong team behind them. Coming from illustrious backgrounds such as Universal Abit (although they are by no means connected in anyway) Vvikoo graphics cards have some ‘heavy fighters’ in their midst and indeed they have come out of the corner swinging!

    Today Vvikoo has knocked us all sideways with their first sally with not one, but Two new graphics cards releases, based on the NVidia chipsets.[/CENTER]

    The video cards on review today all have 256MB of RAM installed and are as follows:

    NVIDIA
    8600GTS
    8600 GT TURBO

    Equipment used to test.
    Abit IP35 PRO rev 1.0 mainboard
    4X1 gigabyte modules (4 gigs) of Crucial Ballistix DDR2 1066
    Intel QUADCORE Q 6600 CPU (B3 Stepping)
    Corsair HX620 PSU
    Mountain Mods U2 UFO case
    CPU ONLY water cooled using a Thermochill PA 120.3 Radiator

    Introducing the VVikoo 8600GTS


    There have been many incarnations of this mid-range graphics card, from XFX, Gigabyte and others however I have never seen a box that was as uninspiring as this one. The box is a rather bland grey/silver colour with few diagrams and images on the box to show what you are getting for your hard-earned money. However the box does have a very nice professional look and feel to it, which helps to detract from its uninspiring look.

    = Crud
    This is just 2nd tier manufactoring (or even 3rd tier (rebranding)) it's a new name, but that's not exactly new.
    when a new company comes in to produce actual chipsets then it might live up to the hyperbol of that post.
    I hope you didn't write that crud.
