Albatron Releases GeForce 8 PCI Cards

According to an estimate of Albatron Technology, millions of integrated motherboards without AGP or PCI Express slots were produced during these years. Considering it unacceptable to forget about that many potential buyers of discrete graphics, the company released GeForce 8 series designed for PCI slots.

Albatron Technology first showcased three PCI graphics cards - PCI8600GT-256X, PCI8500GT-256X, PCI8400GS-256 - at Computex 2008. The company claims these products not only increase performance, but also increase the number of connectable monitors up to two, three or even four.

According to company's own preliminary tests, new graphics cards considerably surpass integrated graphics. In 3DMark2006 the discrete novelties outperformed Intel 915G by up to 1329% (Pentium-4 520 2.8GHz, 1GB DDR2-800).

New low-profile cards feature DVI (Dual-Link), TV-Out (HDTV) and HDMI interfaces. The PCI8600GT (upper image) has 540/1188/800 MHz clock rates, while PCI8500GT (lower image) operates at 450/918/800 MHz. There's no information about the third card on company's website.
