Albatron has announced the 9600GT-512X, a new erformance?VGA card that is
already making waves. At more than 80% faster than any 8600 class card, this
card will be coming in at prices close to existing leader cards in the same
segment. This means that it a no-brainer if you are shopping for a Performance
or budget-Enthusiast card. The GPU on this card features 65nm process technology
which allows the card to run cool and fast with a thin and quiet fan system.
65 nm Process Technology: Lower Power Consumption, Cooler Temperatures,
As mentioned, the GPU on this card sports the new 65 nm Process Technology. This
compact circuitry provides lower power consumption leading to cooler
temperatures. The cooler temperatures, in effect, allows for the use of quieter
and thinner fans. Subsequently, thinner fans mean that the card overall
thickness will not encroach on adjacent expansion slots like enthusiast cards.
In addition, more compact circuitry also means shorter distances for the data to
travel, increasing GPU performance. The GPU is an NVIDIA® GeForce® 9600GT with a
core clock of 650 MHz and 64 stream processors.
