Final Thoughts


The GIGABYTE multi-core cooling setup seems to do a good job of keeping the card at a reasonable temperature while pushing out some decent FPS. The advantage it also has over the Sapphire HD 3870 Ultimate which we looked at the other day is that getting one is going to be a lot easier. While the card hasn't hit the market yet, it's only around the corner and GIGABYTE being as big as they are means that we should see most major retail stores carry it, or at least have access to the model.


With NVIDIA saying that the G92 core should be around for another 12 months, the driver support for the 9600GT should continue to be excellent and we should continue to see some more performance out of it over the coming months.


If you're looking for a silent card, the 9600GT from GIGABYTE could be a good option. We've also heard that a 1GB model is announced and no doubt we're going to check that out, too. So if you want to get a bit more RAM on your silent card, it might be worth waiting.


It would have been nice to have seen a game or HDMI adapter in the bundle, but on a whole the setup here from GIGABYTE is pretty good. The overclock is great for a passively cooled card and the performance is even better.
