Radeon 8500 with 128 Mbyte RAM from Hercules

Hercules has introduced two new graphics cards. They only differ from their predecessors in terms of the amount of memory. The new cards based on the Radeon 8500 from ATI are now equipped with 128 Mbyte RAM.

One card has the Radeon 8500 chip clocked at 275 MHz. The memory has the same clock. As with all other manufacturers, the slower version with the Radeon 8500 LE chip is delivered with a 250 MHz chip and memory clock. Because of the high clock rate, the memory of the faster card is cooled with heat sinks. This is not necessary with the 3D Prophet 8500 LE 128MB. The graphics cards will cost $ 270 and $ 200, respectively. However, the increase in performance through the additional 64 Mbytes is still limited.
