Leadtek WinFast PX9600 GSO Extreme 384MB - The Card

If you find yourself wanting a 9600 GSO that packs a bit more punch, the Leadtek Extreme version may be an option.

The Card

 

Out of the box we can see the card uses something a bit more exciting than the single slot plastic cooler that we're so used to seeing on the 9600 series of cards. We have a big fan sitting on a heatsink that uses heat-pipe technology.

We also have another heatsink at the back of the card. Leadtek have also opted to keep the card in its original single slot form which is great news for people who are tight for space.

While the card does use a different cooler, the 6-pin PCI Express connector is still located at the back of the card while an SLI connector is located across the top. We also have the port for the loop back cable, but Leadtek haven't included this nor have they included a DVI to HDMI connector in the package.

As we mentioned before, the card is a single slot one; on the I/O department we have two Dual-Link DVI connectors and a single TV-Out port.

 

Specifications

 

The card is of course an Extreme model as mentioned. What this means is that the core and memory have both been bumped up. The core's gone from the default 550MHz to 600MHz and the 384MB of GDDR3 memory has gone from 1600MHz DDR to 1800MHz DDR.
