8600GT, 8600GTS and 8500GT available + UK prices

I’ve been keeping an eye out for the new series of cards from Nvidia. Today I was pleasantly surprised to see that the 8600GT was available on Amazon.co.uk. The 8600GT comes in two sku’s, initially only available from XFX. One is the “XXX” model (£109.24) while the other is “non-XXX” (£97.98). I have no idea what these mean but suspect that the XXX may be overclocked.

Also available is the XFX 8600GTS in three sku’s; the standard model (£136.38), the XT (£148.94) and the XXX (£158.87).

I also found the XFX 8500GT for £61.57.

Wow, there’s some interesting thinking to be done there, some very well placed price points. From experience I think we can expect the other vendors to come in with prices slightly lower than this, so it’s a very good start. Now the DirectX 10 generation truly begins.
