Gigabyte Radeon 9600 Pro Graphics Card Review

Conclusion

 

Gigabyte has simply followed the ATI reference design for the G9600 Pro with only one modification, that being a slightly smaller PCB. Without a doubt, the ATI Radeon 9600 Pro based video cards are aimed at the more cost effective mainstream market, coming to the market without making a dent in your wallet while still maintaining decent performance.

 

Gigabyte's previous ATI based cards have been reasonable to great overclocking cards; this one has unfortunately fallen from the mold. While having a great software and features bundle, if you are looking to overclock the hell out of this one, you best look elsewhere.

 

- Pros

 

Cost Effective

 

Great performance for mainstream product

 

Great software bundle

 

- Cons

 

Poor Overclocking

 

No cooling on memory chips
