This first product in the 9600 GT series is expected to offer up to 90 percent greater performance than any GeForce card in its class. With support to Microsoft DirectX 10 , NVIDIA’s Quantum Effects technology, Lumenex engine as well as Unified Architecture ensuring optimium game performance ,it is a good choice for multimedia users.
Its standard version has the core clock speed of 650 Mhz,but XFX also has Extreme and XXX versions which have core clock speeds of 670 and 700 MHz respectively.
