Asus 9600 GT - G94 unveiled

Unreal Tounament 3 and Crysis

Unreal Tournament 3

I have included UT3, even though it is another UE3 game as it is a fast, frantic and furious multiplayer mash-up experience. Using advanced DirectX 9.0c features, the Unreal Engine looks fantastic and runs on almost all half-decent modern GPU's making it an ideal all-round test.

Again the HD3850 beats out the newer Nvidia 9600 GT, seeing a trend yet?
 
 
Crysis

Crysis has to be our most challenging benchmark to date. Running under Windows Vista and using DirectX 10 path, Crysis is currently limited to using "High" settings, rather than "Very High" using any of today's single cards. I also ramped down the resolution to 1680 x 1050 to make sure that I was happy with the framerates.
 
Crysis
 
Crysis, our last and most testing benchmark so far still shows a gap in performance, albeit without AA.

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
