Final Thoughts

ASUS has managed add a few nice little tweaks to the card to make it stand out compared to other 9600 GT cards that we've looked at over the past few months.

The cooler does a good job of keeping the card cool and

It's also nice to see that the promise of less power comes true with the ASUS Matrix using less power than the reference designed 9600 GT. Furthermore, even with the same clocks, the ASUS card is able to outperform the reference 9600 GT consistently under a number of tests.

If that wasn't enough for you, the fact that ASUS have then thrown on an optical-out port alongside the HDMI one makes the card a perfect choice for people who want something that can do a bit of gaming while giving you the best possible image quality on your home theater PC.

All in all, there isn't a whole lot to complain about with the particular card. It would have been nice to see it come to the market a little earlier, but like they say, better late than never.

Now, hopefully we see more graphics cards come in under the Republic of Gamers naming scheme. It will be also interesting to see if we see the Matrix naming scheme pop up again in future releases, be it from AMD or NVIDIA.
