Gigabyte Radeon 9600 Pro Graphics Card Review

We would all love to be in the position to be able to buy a brand new Ferrari on the way to work tomorrow but of course due to the high retail it is inhibitive of actually happening unless your numbers come up in the Lottery. The same, to a lesser extent, applies to graphics cards. If you can't afford the Ferrari of graphics cards, follow Cameron "Sov" Johnson as he takes a look at the Gigabyte Radeon 9600 Pro. It might just be what your wallet was looking while satisfying your performance cravings!

Introduction

 

High-end graphics has been ruled by both nVidia and ATI over the last few months. While having great potential, the Radeon 9800 and GeForce FX 5900 while having great power, both are extremely expensive for average users.

 

nVidia and ATI have solutions with a more appealing price tag with slightly degraded features compared to their high-end brothers, nVidia has the GeForce FX 5200 and 5600, and ATI has the 9200 and 9600.

 

Radeon 9600 is an evolution on the Radeon 9500 video card. Designed with DirectX 9.0 engine, its advancements over the 9200 are very apparent when looking at the specs of the two cores respectively.

 

Gigabyte has been one of ATI's biggest supporters since the Radeon 8000LE days and today they are manufacturing some of the most powerful based 3D cards available.

 

Today we put the Gigabyte Radeon 9600 Pro graphics card to the tests against the most powerful cards available to us today.
