The 9600GT uncovered
NVIDIA's upcoming 9600GT graphics card lives up to the company's performance claims
Earlier this month
reported details of the next generation of GPUs from NVIDIA -- specifically the mid-range GPU codenamed
. Recently, the
GeForce 9600GT was spotted in the open
and Chinese review site
was able to put the new reference card to the test to see what it's made of.
As far as the technical specifications are concerned,
little has changed from our report
earlier this month. The 9600GT will come factory configured with a core clock speed of 650 MHz, a unified shader clock speed of 1625 MHz, and an 1800 MHz memory clock.
From the photographs it looks like 512MB of GDDR3 1000 MHz memory is connected to the GPU by way of a 256-bit bus with a memory bandwidth of 57.6 GB/s. The G94 chip will also offer 64 unified stream processors; double the number on the 8600GT and half the number on the 8800 series.
The photographs show a smaller GPU die size than the G92 chips but slightly larger than the G84 die.
Additional details of the 9600GT include
PCIe 2.0 and support for the Quantum Effects physics processing engine.
was able to measure the performance of the 9600GT and the results confirmed NVIDIA's claims of a 100% performance increase over the 8600 series for the most part. The 9600GT reached an overall score of 10813 while the 8600GTS and 8800GS had scores of 6251 and 10391, respectively.
Additionally, the 9600GT scored higher than the 8800GTS in many of the tests including 3DMark06 and games such as Crysis, BioShock, and Unreal Tournament 3. The 9600GT came up just a little short behind the 8800GS in only a few games such as Need for Speed: ProStreet and Colin McRae Rally (coincidentally, both being auto-racing titles).
Testing of the 9600GT was performed using Beta drivers so we may see additional performance squeezed out of this card and variants from NVIDIA's partners upon official release of a final product and drivers.
