BFG GEFORCE 9600 GT OC2
"BFG GeForce 9600 GT OC2 review also featuring HIS Radeon HD 3870. The BFG GeForce 9600 GT OC2 has 12% lower clock speed, 17% lower memory speed and 256 less pixel shaders compared to HIS Radeon HD 3870. There are two major differences between BFG GeForce 9600 GT OC2 and HIS Radeon HD 3870. These are BFG GeForce 9600 GT OC2 has Gddr3 memory, DirectX 10 while HIS Radeon HD 3870 has Gddr4 memory and DirectX 10.1. How will these differences effect performance?"
"The BFG GeForce 9600 GT OC2 offers the same powerfully immersive entertainment experience as standard models, but is OC2 overclocked to deliver improved frame rates and better over all performance in the hottest Microsoft DirectX 10 games. The revolutionary PureVideo HD engine plays the latest HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc movies with brilliant jitter-free clarity. Couple two BFG GeForce 9600 GT OC2 graphics cards together with an Nvidia nForce motherboard for an optimal graphics platform, giving you the gaming horsepower to handle the most demanding games with Nvidia SLI technology. With BFG GeForce 9600 GT OC2, amazing graphics performance is now within your reach."
"Overclocked to the next level for improved frame rates and overall performance gains in games (compared to standard clocked models). High-definition gaming support with resolutions up to 2560x1600. Future-proof your system: Nvidia SLI technology allows you to add a second GPU to double your graphics power and PCI Express 2.0 bus support offers ultra-fast data transfer."
"Stunning movie playback with reduced CPU utilization and power consumption. Spectacular picture clarity and vibrant color with dynamic contrast enhancement. Full support for HDTV resolutions up to 1080p."
"View crisp, vibrant photos with unprecedented color clarity thanks to Nvidia Digital Vibrance Control. Connect 2 LCD displays for increased productivity. Premium user experience in Microsoft Windows Vista with dedicated graphics processor."
Nvidia unified architecture
"Fully unified shader core dynamically allocates processing power to geometry, vertex, physics, or pixel shading operations, delivering up to 2x the gaming performance of prior generation GPUs."
Full Microsoft DirectX 10 Support
"DirectX 10 GPU with full Shader Model 4.0 support delivers unparalleled levels of graphics realism and film-quality effects."
Nvidia SLI Technology
"Delivers up to 2x the performance of a single graphics card configuration for unequaled gaming experiences by allowing two graphics cards to run in parallel. The must-have feature for performance PCI Express graphics, SLI dramatically scales performance on today's hottest games."
PCI Express 2.0 Support
"Designed to run perfectly with the new PCI Express 2.0 bus architecture, offering a future-proofing bridge to tomorrow's most bandwidth-hungry games and 3D applications by maximizing the 5GT/s PCI Express 2.0 bandwidth (twice that of first generation PCI Express). PCI Express 2.0 products are fully backwards compatible with existing PCI Express motherboards for the broadest support."
"Massively multi-threaded architecture supports thousands of independent, simultaneous threads, providing extreme processing efficiency in advanced, next generation shader programs."
Nvidia Lumenex Engine
"Delivers stunning image quality and floating point accuracy with ultra-fast frame rates."
Nvidia Quantum Effects Technology
"Advanced shader processors architected for physics computation enable a new level of physics effects to be simulated and rendered on the GPU all while freeing the CPU to run the game engine and artificial intelligence (AI)."
Nvidia ForceWare Unified Driver Architecture (UDA)
"Delivers a proven record of compatibility, reliability, and stability with the widest range of games and applications. ForceWare provides the best out-of-box experience for every user and delivers continuous performance and feature updates over the life of Nvidia GeForce GPUs."
OpenGL 2.1 Optimizations and Support
"Ensures top-notch compatibility and performance for OpenGL applications."
Dual 400MHz RAMDACs
"Blazing-fast RAMDACs support dual QXGA displays with ultra-high, ergonomic refresh ratesup to 2048x1536@85Hz."
