Asus 9600 GT - G94 unveiled

Overclocking

Overclocking

Overclocking was performed using Nvidia's drivers and the nTune plugin. No hard or soft mods were performed on the cards and overclocking in this way is meant to represent an "easy overclock", giving value for money on each card without making too much effort.

Results

Here's what happened:
 
overclock
 
Overclocking has given us a fantastic overclock of 796/1006. That's a drastic improvement of 146MHz on the core and 106MHz on the video RAM, pretty damn fantastic.
 
3dmark06 overclocked
 
As we can see by the 3DMark test, this affects the performance of the card substantially, providing a bit of value for your money with an improvement of 1887 3DMarks over stock.
 
Unfortunately due to time constraints we have been unable to sample any power consumption data at this time.

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
