Madshrimps - Chilehardware picked up some info about the possible launch of a faster 8600 GTS with 256-bit memory bus in June (date mentioned coincides with Computex); the doubled bandwidth bus would give the 8600 GTS the boost needed to make it the promised budget king. Let's hope it's true: "In June I get information to us on a future revision from GeForce 8600GTS to be sent during the first week of June. This new revision would have a controller of memory able to handle these with a bandwidth of 256-bit. This in comparison to the present model of 128-bit would duplicate effective bandwidth between graphical processor and the memory attack to same operating frequency. The new model of GeForce 8600GTS civil employee to the same frequency of nucleus and memories, nevertheless the reference model ademas would have 512MB of memory, thus duplicating nonsingle bandwidth to memories but also the capacity of storage. It is to hope that one is a launching with noise during Computex - the fair of computer science of Taipei - since the dates ironically agree."
