    News about Geforce 9600 GT

    http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=170455

    QUOTE "We have got some news from Nvidia about the next gen. mainstream card,the 9600GT.

    The first gen. Directx 10 Gpus,the G80,G84 and G86 will have finished their EOL process in February and the production will be stopped.

    The 9600GT will be produced in 65nm process and is based on the ''D9P'' Gpu.It's expected to be announced in mid-February.
    The card will be clocked at 500mhz/2000mhz (Gpu/Ram),and is expected to have 96 SP units and a 256bit wide memory bus.This mainstream card will have only one SLI connector,so it won't be supporting Triple-SLI.

    It is also said that 9600GT will be pin compatible with the current 8800GT,this means the same PCB used with 8800GT can also be used with the 9600GT.This lowers production costs.

    The performance of 9600GT will be somewhere between 8800GT and HD 3850.

    The high end cards of the Geforce 9 series using the G100 Gpu (9800GTX) are expected to be announced in late March or early April."

    Judging from the specs, it doesn't sound like much. I think this is what the 8600GT should have been! It looks like the 3850 is going to be the faster card, since it already isn't that far behind the 8800gt. I guess we'll see what OCing does to it.

    I just put my new 8800GT Alpha Dog in yesterday and I figure that it is every bit as good if not better then what is being announced. There has to be a limit as to what you can improve on and I think we are at that limit with today’s technology.

    heh, I wonder how many people have said THAT over the years? As long as software demands more than what is possible with current hardware (and most of today's games can), there will always be improved products.

    From what I gather, the 9600GT will be considerably better than the 8600 series, but not as good as the 8800 series--which will eventually be turning into the 9800 series one of these days.

    Aye..I've been needing a good upgrade to card lately. This one looks nice, but just not the card, just kind of a good card.
