Default NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT Out in the Wild, Doubles Performance of 8600GT

From our front-page news:
With G94 due next month, it's almost a surprise that it took this long for "leaked" benchmarks to roll in, but in all honesty, I think it was worth the wait. According to Chinese website PC Online, the upcoming 9600GT is set out to put the 8600GT to absolute shame, and the numbers are here to back that up.

The new card will be equipped with 64 stream processors, up from 32 on the 8600GT, and the memory interface has been bumped up to 256-Bit, which in itself should result in light/day comparisons to it's predecessor. Memory keeps at 512MB, but core and memory clocks are increased to 650MHz and 1800MHz, respectively.

Depending on pricing, this card is going to prove to be a good choice for most anyone. It's specs are close to the higher-end current-gen (soon to be last-gen) cards, so it's really hard to go wrong. Whether or not the cards will be priced similarly to current 8600GTs is yet to be seen, but it would not be a surprise to see the price hiked to reflect the far improved performance.

PC Online was able to measure the performance of the 9600GT and the results confirmed NVIDIA's claims of a 100% performance increase over the 8600 series for the most part. The 9600GT reached an overall score of 10813 while the 8600GTS and 8800GS had scores of 6251 and 10391, respectively.
