Summary: Our today’s review is dedicated to an uncommon product. GeCube RADEON 9600 XT "Extreme" graphics card is based on the new PCB design and comes equipped with faster memory. We are going to answer two questions: what advantages fast memory can bring to a RADEON 9600 XT-based card, and how the new PCB design influences the overclockability of the card.
Pros: High performance;, High quality mounting;, High 2D quality;, Efficient cooling system;, Compact size;, Fast memory onboard;, High overclockability.
Cons: Scanty accessories, no Half-Life 2 coupon;, Strange behavior with ATI CATALYST drivers different from 4.1 version. Note: maybe the latter drawback is typical only of our sample of GeCube RADEON 9600 XT “Extreme”.
