It's been a while between cards from Twintech; and like the last one we looked at, this one also seems to be quite impressive. While there isn't a whole lot going on in the package department, the aftermarket cooler is quiet and performs well. To top it off, the performance from the card on a whole is pretty good. It manages to give us a pretty consistent 10% performance increase over a stock 9600GT while keeping temps down by almost 10c as well.
While Twintech aren't that well known in Australia, or even the USA for that matter, they are quite large in Europe. While availability for some parts of the world isn't great, in other parts getting a hold of the XXT 9600GT from Twintech shouldn't be an issue. With so many graphics card manufacturers around these days, you can't expect every brand to be in every country.
The 9600GT continues to impress with companies doing all kinds of things to the card. We've seen everything from active to passive cooling and single to dual slot. With the card being so popular and sitting at an excellent price point, it seems that a lot of companies are choosing to experiment on it. What this means is that we end up with a heap of 9600GTs, all with different clock speeds and features.
You couldn't go wrong with the Twintech 9600GT which offers a good out of the box overclock and a quiet yet efficient cooling solution.
