ATI Radeon 9600XT Review

Rage3D
4 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Introduction Not everyone has the cash to shell out $400 on a videocard every six months. Fortunately, spending that kind of money isn't necessary to get decent 3D performance these days. Mid-range cards from both ATI and nVidia give you enough performance to run the latest games with all the eye-candy turned on and you don't have to take out a mortgage to get one. Today I'm looking at ATI's latest mid-range card, the Radeon 9600XT.

  • Conclusion: You know with such low memory clock speeds, this card is just to be overclocked. We were able to get it up to 570 MHz core, and 650 MHz memory. The stock timings are 500/600 respectively, so I can say I am quite impressed with the overclocking results of this card.

  • Excerpt: You can't ignore the fact that this card brings an unbelievable amount of potential to an everyday computer. Instead of just using your computer to surf the web, game and catch up on your work, you can transform that ordinary work box into a complete multimedia center complete with countless audio/video inputs and outputs, a television..

ATi All In Wonder Radeon 9600 XT

HotHardware
27 April 2004
  • Excerpt: When they initially released the All-In-Wonder 9600 Pro back in October of last year, ATi introduced a number of new features into their popular multimedia line of video cards.  The All-In-Wonder 9600 Pro was the first product in the line-up to offer dual-monitor support.  It was also the first to have an integrated FM tuner, and the Remote Wonder II made its debut, although it didn't ship with the card.

  • Summary: The Radeon 9600XT All In Wonder is the missing piece of the pie when it comes to ATI's 9XXX series of cards. This brings multimedia/gaming performance to the masses with full Direct X 9 compatibility. This means that you can play the latest games. The card ran Far Cry (arguably the most intensive workout a graphics card can get today) flawlessly at medium details and every other game we threw at it never missed a beat.
  • Pros: Full Direct X 9 Performance for your PC, TV and FM radio, TIVO style guide plus software included, Plays all the latest games, Great price ($250), VIVO capability easy to capture those home videos to your PC
  • Cons: Fan is a little louder than usual, No Half Life 2 Coupon

ATI Radeon 9600XT 128MB

  • Conclusion: It seems like forever since the last time I recommended an NVIDIA based video card over ATI in any market segment. NVIDIA usually did okay in the middle range, but this time there is absolutely no comparison. The 5700 Ultra handled the 9600XT in most tests, when regular resolutions and filtering were used . That is important, because the 9600XT keeps up just fine when 4xAA and 8X Aniso filtering are enabled.
  • Pros: Superior filtering quality and speed, Includes Half Life 2, Always room for improvement, as ATI works on drivers all the time, Low heat, no external power required, Good overclocking potential
  • Cons: Performance isn't up to the new par set by NVIDIA, Besides HL2, not much else bundled, Needs to go down 1 market segment to be viable

ATI Radeon 9600XT Video Card Review

3D Xtreme
30 December 2003
  • Summary: Clearly the 9600XT dominates the 5600 in 3D performance which is pretty much what we expected. ATI has built upon the success of their 9600 Pro with the XT. The addition of dynamic overclocking with the Overdrive option in the drivers is a clear winner. The user is given the opportunity to overclock without having to find the correct settings for themselves.

  • Conclusion: The Radeon 9600 XT is aimed to be at around £150 and offers excellent value for this. Unless you are absolutely dying to get DirectX 9 support, this isn't any reason to throw out your older Radeon 8500 (for instance). If on the other hand you haven't upgraded in a while, it could be just the job. The 9600 XT will be in all the shops in plenty of time for Christmas.
