Palit 9600GT Sonic 1GB Graphics Card - The Card

Palit has added another 512MB of RAM whilst retaining extensive connectivity. Is this the 1GB 9600GT to get?

The Card

 

Moving onto the card, it looks identical to the 9600GT Sonic we looked at a while back. The big cooler in the middle takes up the center of the card and manages to cover the memory modules on the front.

 

 

The aftermarket cooler from Palit does take up two slots, but it's not too bad since due to the extra connectivity the card offers you're going to be using two slots in your case anyway.

 

 

 

Having a look around the card, it's a pretty standard affair. The back of the card gives us a single PCI Express connector while as you go across the top we see a single SLI connector. Next to the SLI connector we have another white plug that goes between your graphics card and sound card so you can also get sound out of your HDMI port.

 

 

Connectivity is pretty full on, as was the case with the 512MB Palit 9600GT Sonic. We have two Dual Link DVI connectors, HDMI and Display Port. Alongside that we also have an optical port that can be used in conjunction with the supplied optical cable to get sound through the HDMI port.

 

Specifications

 

With the card of course carrying the Sonic naming scheme, it comes pre-overclocked out of the box. The default clocks on a 9600GT are 650MHz Core, 1625MHz Shader clock and 1800MHz DDR clock on the memory.

 

The Palit sports a 700MHz core, 1750MHz on the Shader clock and 2000MHz DDR on the 1GB of GDDR3.
