Nvidia GeForce 9600GT Review

The Hardware site PConline has posted an early review (in Chinese) of the upcoming GeForce 9600GT, the next mid-range graphic card from Nvidia. The system used was powered by an Intel QX6800(266×11) processor, a Gigabyte P38-DQ6 Motherboard, and 2GB DDR2 800 of Memory. The ForceWare 171.16 beta (which comes with support for the new card) was used to test the new GeForce 9600GT, while Catalyst 7.12 for Vista was used to test the Radeon HD3850. The tests consisted of 9 games (with all the settings on maximum quality) plus 3DMark06. Thankfully, there's no language barrier where it comes to FPS numbers!
