Performance versus the Radeon HD 3870

The BFGTech GeForce 9600 GT OC’s gaming performance is very interesting. The first thing to note is that in all three games tested the 9600 GT was in fact faster than AMD’s fastest single GPU video card, the ATI Radeon HD 3870. At this price point of $169-$189, the 9600 GT competes more with the Radeon HD 3850, but lo and behold, it was besting the 3870 in our game testing. In Crysis it simply had faster shader performance which allowed several in-game settings to be set at “High†versus “Medium†on the 3870.

You have here a 64 streaming processor GPU (9600 GT) beating a 320 streaming processor GPU (3870). This goes a long way to prove that there are major architectural differences between both GPUs that a simple glance at a spec sheet will not explain. The picture is painted even prettier in favor of the 9600 GT when you look back on the previous page and note that the BFGTech GeForce 9600 GT OC is pulling this kind of performance with cooler temperatures and lower full-load power draw of all the video cards tested here.

Performance versus the 8800 GT

In our testing the GeForce 8800 GT was faster than the BFGTech GeForce 9600 GT OC in every game. In the case of Crysis we saw the most advantage for gameplay with the 8800 GT allowing us to enable “High†shaders quality at 1280x1024. In some games though, like COD 4, and UT3 the improvement wasn’t as big, but it was still there.
