Midrange Graphics Card Round Up

3. Gainward Bliss 9600 GT5. XFX 9600 GT XXX


Asus EN9600GT

There is little detailed information about the 9600 GT on the Asus box but what we do learn is that the card comes bundled with a DVI to HDMI dongle and a cooler which differs to the reference model. Inside the box we do indeed find the HDMI adapter as well as all of the standard items and a guide on how to connect for HDMI use.

The Asus 9600 GT has a nice blue PCB which works well with the gold cooler. Like the other 9600’s in this review the Asus card has an SLI connector along the top edge and a single 6pin power socket at the rear. This model uses the reference clocks of 650MHz core, 1625MHz shader and 900MHz memory. All of the memory chips used here (K4J52324QE-BJ1A, 1.0ns) are placed on the front of the card and air from the cooler passes over them, no heatsinks are used.
