Expreview has another exclusive. The site published a photo of a system with a GeForce 9600 GT 512MB graphics card. The card features a 650MHz core, 1625MHz shaders and 1800MHz memory.
Here are the 3DMark06 results. All three cards were tested on a system with a QX9650 (333MHz x 9) CPU, Asus Maximus Formula ROG X38 DDR3 motherboard and Geil 1GBX2 DDR2 800MHz 4-4-4-10-1T memory. They used Windows Vista Ultimate and NVIDIA ForceWare 169.25WHQL drivers.
The performance of this GeForce 8600 GT replacement is quite impressive. It doesn't beat the high-end parts but might give the Radeon HD 3850 a run for its money.
