Connect 3D Radeon 9600 XT Review

Quote from the review at Overclocker Cafe:

“From what I can see, the Connect3D Radeon 9600XT is pretty much everything they said it was. Moderately priced for the gamer on a budget, it still puts out the frag power. Even though both cards were evenly matched, once we turned on the Anti-Aliasing and Anisotropic Filtering, the 9600XT was still punching out some good frame rates.  What is very nice about this card, is the lack of needing an external power supply. The advanced manufacturing process allows for the high speed of the core and memory without the need for more power. Granted, compared the Chaintech 5600Ultra, the 9600XT looks kinda bland, but if you’re looking for more frag power for you frag buck, I’d go with this card.

The bareness of the manual did leave me a little wanting, but that’s nothing more than a personal desire. The only real down side to this card is the cooling for the core and memory. I would personally rather see a more aggressive stance made towards the cooling. This might also help in overclocking the card too.  We also should not forget you get a copy of a $50 game that most of us would be buying anyway.  That’s what I call a bonus.”
