Default FiringSquad Radeon 9600XT Review

Review starts here.

Comments:

At lower than 1600x1200, the 9600XT beats the 9500 PRO in all benchmarks.

FS' 605/690 (2x345) overlock is not too shabby.

No mention of ATi using faster memory with shipping boards.

The perfect midrange video card in my opinion.

$200 for HL2 + graphics card = great great deal

I agree with you.

Perfect? A $199 NV37 may change that opinion in the eyes of the mainstream, but being a fanATIc, there is no doubt that my next card will be a 9600XT. But if an OEM offers it with faster memory/mem clock, I may go with it instead of ATi.

I hope a 9600XT will last me until late next year when I can get a Prescott CPU with PCI-Express mobo, and a AIW R450 or R423.

I think theInq is BS. I don't think ATi was expecting nVidia to develop a new core for NV36/FX5700, so they were not prepared to give the 9600XT faster memory. It'll be up to ATi's OEMs to do that.

Hellbinder is right. Nvidia promise many things to their loyal fans but all they provided was crap crap crap. Let's not forget the 5800 fx now with the leaf blower now.

Also, picture quality is something too. Have you seen the screen shots of the new drivers compared with the old ones?
