OC3D Review: Asus 9600 GT

We take the latest card from Nvidia, via Asus and put it to the test.

9600 GT laid bare

Aye. It's good, just not up to par of a "next gen card" in my opinion

After seeing the slick-look of the 8800GT stock cooler (looks alone), after not liking the double-slot coolers, the fan-on-a-card appearance to me looks awful >.<

One heck of an oc on that sucker mind u. Bit of a breathe of fresh air from the latest GT/GTS cards, which were woeful clockers imo - and tempremental in the process.

There`s only one thing that holds this mid-range card back for me, cos I do think it seems like a good mid-gamer (rts, tame fps, media), and that`s it`s price in comparison with the ATI variety that can beat it in performance.

Around £127 with £150ish GT out there.. I dunno.

Thanks for the read m8.

The audio work well on the hdmi ?

Hmm looks like it didn't do well, not a very good start to the 9 series

Looking forward to the 9800 review though

It isn't mean tot be high end though, its to replace the 8600GTS. Id say it does its job quite well in that respect.

But considering the 3850 I cant see how this is any good.

That's the thing

I see no point in comparing it with the 8600, Nvidia did a bad job on that one and it sucked, they shouldn't get points for actually making a card that didn't suck as much as it's predecessor

But ye, it gets beat by the lower priced HD3850

U reckon the 8600 sucked ?

I think it was priced too high for what it was and performance wasn't amazing
