MSI N9600GT-T2D512 OC

The N9600GT is the Over Clock Edition of MSI’s graphics card based on the Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). The graphics card supports both Microsoft DirectX 10 and OpenGL 2.0 3D graphics APIs. In addition, the MSI N9600GT also features support for Nvidia’s Physx hardware acceleration technology and the CUDA C language environment. WIth applications that use CUDA, the user can expect a significant boost in graphics processing efficiency.

Other Nvidia innovations featured on the N9600GT include the Scalable Link Interface (SLI) multi-GPU technology and PureVideo HD. The latter is Nvidia’s new video processor architecture that offloads the High Definition video decoding process from the CPU to the GPU. This results in better HD performance as well as a 30% reduction in CPU load.

The N9600GT also features several MSI technologies. With Vivid Video, the user can easily tweak and enhance image quality. MSI StarOSD, DOT Express (Dynamic Overclocking Technology Express) and MSI Shader O.C. give the user convenient tools for overclocking and adjusting other settings.

DOT Express and Shader O.C. are notable in that they provide the user powerful overclocking tools. The former features an advanced overclocking engine that promises speed boosts of up to 10% and improves the synchronized GPU and DDR performance. The latter enhances Nvidia’s Stream Processor.
