Default Albatron unveils GeForce 8-series graphics cards for PCI slots

Albatron Technology has unveiled three new Nvidia GeForce 8-series graphics cards that use the practically outdated PCI slot. While the appeal of the PCI8600GT-256X, the PCI8500GT-256X and the PCI8400GS-256 may not be obvious for anyone who has a PCI Express or even AGP slot on their motherboard, there are still quite a few systems (particularly small form factor or HTPC ones) where expansion options are limited, creating an niche market for these cards.

The graphics cards are all low profile designs allowing them to fit in smaller cases such as HTPC design that try to match the form factor of tradition consumer electronics devices.

Of the three versions, the PCI8600GT and PCI8500GT models adopt faster DDR3 memory and also feature HDMI connectors for higher quality output, highlighted the Albatron.

Looks like the x1300 isn't the best PCI card anymore

I wonder how much the pci interface will bottleneck those cards.

I had a old pci geforce 6200 that would only get about 650 in 3dmark05 compared to the ~1200 that the pci-e versions got. I always thought it was the limit of pci but I would imagine the x1300 is faster so maybe not.
