GeForce 8600 GT Inno3D 1GB GDDR2 compatibility review

Overall, the Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT Inno3D 1GB GDDR2 has poor performance. This should be expected only from older dedicated graphics cards, so this graphics card should definitely be avoided if building a system to power modern applications and games. This graphics card is now over 13 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. The driver support for the Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT Inno3D 1GB GDDR2 is now fairly poor, so don't count on any new game optimizations. You may also encounter more and more graphical oddities as newer games are released.

At this performance level you would be better off getting a CPU with an integrated GPU, because a dedicated graphics card like the Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT Inno3D 1GB GDDR2 would not be worth the extra investment, and an integrated solution would be much cheaper, produce less heat, and require less power. We would recommend an Intel Iris GPU on one of the latest Intel Haswell processors, such as the Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop, or one of AMD's latest APU Family graphics solutions such as the Radeon HD 8670D.

With an effective SPU count of 43, the Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT Inno3D 1GB GDDR2 processes shading and special graphical effects fairly poorly.
