Conclusion: Performance Summary: Thanks to its factory overclock, the XFX 8600 GT Fatal1ty outperforms the standard 8600 GT by a considerable margin. The only benchmark that the 8600 GT Fatal1ty didn't really dominate the standard 8600 GT was the Company of Heroes test at 1600x1200. We were actually hoping (but not necessarily expecting) the 8600 GT Fatal1ty to hang with the 7950 GT and X1950 Pro a little more closely, but the smaller memory bandwidth held the 8600 GT Fatal1ty back.
Pros: Excellent mid-range performance, SLI support, Solid factory overclock, Silent, passive cooling, DirectX 10 support, Good game included
Conclusion: Having a celebrity endorse a product may not be a surefire way of success but it has been shown to raise the profile of the company tremendously, hence the enormous amount of endorsement deals nowadays. Of course in the case of Jonathan 'Fatal1ty' Wendel, his field of professional gaming is only in its infancy so there is understandably some skepticism over whether it can become the next major sports and entertainment outlet for the masses.
