Photos - The Card
On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at 4272 x 2848 pixels and then scaled down. The camera used was a Canon 450D - 12 MegaPixel.
Here we see the packaging. We always show it so you can recognize it in the stores.
The Galaxy GeForce 9600 GT comes with 512MB memory and as explained default clock-speeds. Noticeable is the custom blue PCB.
But even more noticeable, obviously that big cooler, and that becomes apparent when we flip the board around.
We stumble into one SLI finger. If you pair two of these cards in SLI on a compatible mainboard the performance will be nicer. On the backside we also get a glimpse of that huge heatsink. The sheer size alone already told me that it's cooling performance would be more than adequate.
You can see three heat pipes lead to the cooling ribbons, and one big copper block is mounted onto the GPU. Big, true, but definitely a good cooler.
