|Product:||GeForce 9500 GT Overclock|
|Street price:||89-99 USD | 79 EUR|
G96 - The GeForce 9500 GT, today NVIDIA launches a new budget product. It's called the GeForce 9500 GT and pretty much is the GeForce 8600 GT yet made under a smaller 65nm fab. The good thing is that the card is is real cheap, even better is that we have been promised that the card will be faster than that two year old GeForce 8600 GT.
To throw in some more confusing model names, NVIDIA has prepared this GeForce 9500 GT to replace their older 8500 GT completely.
The GeForce 9500 GT has a 'G96' core and comes with 32 shader processors, the frequency for the reference models will be 650MHz, and quite interesting it's shader domain will be clocked at 1650MHz, which is pretty good for a budget product. Memory frequencies are at the disposal the board partners but we can report gDDR3 being run over a 128-bit bus in 256 and 512 MB configurations.
Just like the rest of the series 9 products, this product isn't all about the performance increase within it's segment, but thing of PCIe 2.0 compatibility, lower power consumption and better PureVideo HD decoding.
So what we'll do today is present you a quick performance review of this little card. The card we'll test is an actual retail sample from the folks at Galaxy technology. This is the Galaxy GeForce 9500 GT Overclock edition by the way.
Next page please, but not before you've had a peek.
In this article we review the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini edition, a compact performance graphics card designed primarily for small form factor PCs with mini ITX motherboards. The dual-slot card measures just 17cm and features the NVIDIA GTX 670 GPU. ASUS has re-engineered the DirectCU cooler to fit small form factor cases. While shorter, it introduces a copper vapor chamber placed directly on top of the GPU for faster heat spreading and dispersal with 20% lower temperatures than reference GTX 670.
