MSI GeForce 8500 GT Review

MSI NX8500GT-TD256E

As you could see from the pictures posted in the previous page, this video card uses a very simple aluminum cooler, which doesn’t touch the memory chips.

This video card uses eight DDR2 256-Mbit 2.5 ns chips from Hynix (HY5PS561621AFP-25) as you can see in Figure 4, making the 256 MB of memory this video card has. These chips can run up to 800 MHz (400 MHz x 2) and since on this video card the memory chips are already running at 800 MHz there is no headroom for overclocking the memory inside the chips’ specs. Of course you can even try pushing them above their specs.

This video card comes with one full game (Toca Race Driver 3) and one video component cable, as you can see in Figure 5.
