The hype surrounding the new 9 Series of graphics cards from NVIDIA hasn't seemed to have been as big as previous generation releases. The biggest reason for this seems to be that there have been so many graphics cards released over the past few months that this just seems like another one of them.
The latest graphics card to make its way to the labs at TweakTown (and the public very soon) is the 9600GT. Generally speaking, any x600 form of card has never been that exciting really; sure the 8600GT and 8600GTS weren't bad, but far from what you'd call exciting.
What makes this one any more interesting you say? Well, word floating around the interweb is that the card is supposed to be quite the performer. How much of a performer is it? It doesn't really matter at this second because we're only a few pages away from finding out exactly that!
