Asus 9600 GT - G94 unveiled

Call of Duty 4, F.E.A.R. and Bioshock

Call of Duty 4

Call of Duty 4 is a stunning DirectX 9.0c based game that really looks awesome and has a very full featureset. With lots of advanced lighting, smoke and water effects, the game has excellent explosions and is fast and furious, perfect for our test suite.

CoD 4 shows the Asus 9600 GT has the guts to stay in competition with the big boys of the 8 series. Notice that it also beats out it's HD3850 rival.

F.E.A.R. is a game based on the Lithtech Jupiter EX engine. It has volumetric lighting, soft shadows, parallax mapping and particle effects. This is a fairly old game but was a very testing one at the time of release and still looks fantastic, so we've kept it in.
In F.E.A.R. the HD3850 has it's revenge with a great performance, although the Max FPS of the 9600 GT is higher. Gaming in F.E.A.R. was great as it should be with this mid range GPU.

Bioshock is a game based on the Unreal Engine 3. It uses some DirectX10 features such as awesome water and smoke effects. The detail level in the game, combined with a frantic pace makes for an excellent benchmark.
Bioshock again shows that the 9600 GT plays a good game, especially with the DX10 effects. However, the HD3850 wins through again here.

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
