    ASUS Radeon 9600XT/TVD 128MB

    n
    When evaluating a product for a final rating we look at a number of factors. Firstly, how much has the manufacturer done to appease a wide spectrum of users ?. How good is its implementation on the whole ?. What kind of value-adding features does it use that go beyond most others' ?. Is the technology that it is based on sound ?. We feel that ASUS has done as much as anyone in relation to the RV360. Almost every facet is covered with thought and attention. Priced at around £145, it also represents good midrange value. Highly recommended.

    why is it tarinders review never cease to amaze me, another fantastic 1. £145ish for that card is insame! Good job Asus.


    The GPU slider is at maximum. PowerStrip was also used but the card began to have serious stability problems at anything over 580MHz core. So much so that the desktop became corrupted and the drivers had to be removed and installed to cure the problem. At 576MHz, however, everything was as smooth as a baby's bottom. The 2.8ns memory showed no artifacts at 729MHz DDR, and only the odd one at 740MHz
    incredible.

    Firstly, a good review. Secondly, I want one. I have been waiting till after Chrimbo to go out and buy a GFX card. I have stuck with Nvidia faithfully for a few generations of cards. But the time has come to migrate. Is there any issues with using Radeons with motherboards that have nvidia chipsets ?

    I know this should not be the case, but just have to ask as £145 is not a pittance I would like to waste.

    I have an Nv7 mobo - actually. I think it is Asus too !

    *edits*

    err. Now that I think abooot it, it is probably not an asus mobo.....Probably abit. I don't know why I posted...

    Anyone notice the similarity in the PCB to the 9700 & 9800, I wonder if this card can be softmodded into a 9800xt.

    I would've thought the entirely different GPU would prevent that?

    Oh sorry we're talking ATi, i mean "VPU"

    As far as I'm aware the VPU is entirely the same. the R360 core, but I'm willing to be corrected
