Chinese website PC Online have recently gotten their hands on an upcoming GeForce 9600GT graphics card in reference form which they run through a series of tests and compare to the 8800GS, 8600GTS and Radeon HD3850 graphics cards.


The 9600GT will be the new mid-range part in NVIDIA's GeForce 9 series lineup with a core clock speed of 650MHz, shader clock at 1625MHz and memory clock 1800MHz on a 256-bit bus.


Dailytech have the full scoop on the new G94 chip's specs here, and you can get to the performance numbers on the card here.


From the photographs it looks like 512MB of GDDR3 1000 MHz memory is connected to the GPU by way of a 256-bit bus with a memory bandwidth of 57.6 GB/s. The G94 chip will also offer 64 unified stream processors; double the number on the 8600GT and half the number on the 8800 series.


The photographs show a smaller GPU die size than the G92 chips but slightly larger than the G84 die. Additional details of the 9600GT include PCIe 2.0 and support for the Quantum Effects physics processing engine.
