Asus 9600 GT - G94 unveiled

Synthetic Benchmarks - 3DMark

FutureMark - 3DMark03

3DMark03 is a benchmark that uses mainly a DirectX 8 featureset including several pixel fillrate tests. I included this test in the review to see an approximation of how well old games will play on the current gen cards, as well as how well each card copes with the fill-rate tests.
3DMark03 is good for the 9600 GT in as far as it scores higher than the HD3850 at the higher resolution and AA, albeit not by much.
FutureMark 3DMark05

3DMark05 is a benchmark based on DirectX 9 with more advanced shading and bump-mapping techniques, as well as a tough CPU test integrated.
Again the 9600 GT's scores are below that of it's rival.
FutureMark - 3DMark06

3DMark06 is a more complex 3D benchmark, using many of the more advanced techniques found in DirectX 9.0c such as utilising Shader Model 3.0 and HDR lighting to create a tough benchmark that stresses the GPU and CPU.
The newer benchmark sees the 9600 trail at behind the cheaper HD3850, even at high resolution with AA.

Nice review fella. Shame the card isn't much cop. Sounds like Nvidia got a bit lazy :/Quote

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

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 ?Quote

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

Looking forward to the 9800 review though Quote
