MSI GeForce 9600GT 1GB OC Graphics Card - The Card

MSI has doubled the RAM on the 9600GT, giving us a grand total of 1GB. Let's see if the extra memory is a good move.

The Card

 

With the package out the way it's time to check out the card; there really isn't anything different when compared to the 512MB model that we looked at just the other month.

 

 

The big red cooler manages to take up most of the card and you can see behind it is the heat pipe and fins that help keep the card as cool as possible.

 

 

 

Looking around the card there isn't anything out of the ordinary; the rear of the card has a single PCI Express power connector, while as we move across the top we have a single SLI connector. Next to the SLI connector we can see another white plug that is used to loop the sound card and the graphics card together so you can get sound through the HDMI convertor included in the package.

 

 

The card is of course a dual slot one thanks to the large cooler, and includes the standard two Dual Link DVI connectors and a TV-Out port.

 

Specifications

 

As we mentioned earlier, the 1GB variant came overclocked out of the box, and as you can see below, the increase isn't too bad.

 

 

We have a 700MHz core which is 50MHz up from the stock speed along with a 1680MHz Shader Clock which is 55MHz up from stock. The memory has also gone up 100MHz DDR to 1900MHz DDR.
