As you can see, although the Falat1ty is almost always better than the Vvikoo at stock, it just can’t perform as well against the Turbo’s higher overclock.

Cost

This 8600 from Vvikoo is currently selling at £80 which is around $162 USD. This is a little below average for this card as most retailers are selling ones from other manufacturers for between £85 and £90. As a point of interest, this makes the Vvikoo 8600GT £15 cheaper than the XFX Fatal1ty card.

Noise and Cooling

During operation I found the card’s noise levels were fantastic. The Turbo stayed pretty much silent while at full load; this was down to it’s slow spinning fan. The temperatures of the card were also pretty impressive considering again, the slow spinning fan. At idle they were sat at 52 degrees C and at load they only reached 76. Things start to get a bit hot when it’s overclocked, hitting 80 degrees, but I have seen hotter 8600s.
