ATi Radeon 9600XT review
Monday, March 29, 2004
“For the 9600 I turned on the Overdrive feature that comes with the new drivers, which will overclock the card a slight bit using input from temperature sensors on the card. I figured that this is how most gamers will be using it, so it’s fair to leave it turned on for these benchmarks. As I said before, the 9600XT has a 500MHz core clock, with a 300MHz (600MHz DDR) memory clock. The 9700 Pro, which is made by FIC, is running at 325MHz core, 310MHz memory clock. The 9600XT has a much higher clock speed, so we’ll see how it compares.”
