Though much of the focus in the graphics card world right now points to the newly launched 9800 GX2, this fresh 9600 GT based graphics card to hit town from GIGABYTE should easily still pick up some attention from the masses.


The GV-NX96T512HP is not your average run of the mill 9600 GT, oh no.. this card has been modified with a multitude of proprietory technologies from GIGABYTE which makes it really stand out amongst the pack.



Such advancements include a far superior (all-passive) heatsink design which uses GIGABYTE's "Multi-Core Cooling" technology with unprecedented thermal efficiency, and also implemented is GIGABYTE's own "Gamer HUD" technology, which by means of a dedicated software utility can allow for multi-level GPU voltage control manipulation on the fly for better overclockability.



The icing on the cake comes in the form of "Ultra Durable 2", a quality assurance standard of GIGABYTEs which includes the use of Ferrite Core Chokes, Low RDS (on) MOSFETs and Lower ESR Solid Capacitors to ensure you are getting a reliable well designed product.
