[TcMag] MSI 2GB GeForce 9600 GT Diamond gets OC button

The Intel P45 mania of making uber-equipped products seems to be rubbing off somewhat with MSI preparing the release of one very special, GeForce 9600 GT Diamond. The card, pictured below, has almost everything you'll want from a graphics card, in terms of features - for starters, a nice, big heatpipe-boasting cooling system that seems to be a hybrid model which turns off the fan when the temperature of the card is under a certain level. Next, there are the HDMI and DisplayPort connectors, 2GB of GDDR3 memory and easy overclocking via the included Turbo button. Once pressed, the button makes sure that the card's frequencies will go up to yet unknown values while the G94 will get more voltage.

The upcoming 9600 GT Diamond will also feature the Dr. MOS power saving technology and a quite restrictive fan cover/grill. MSI's new Diamond will be released next month with a showcase at Computex next week being practically a certainty. No word on pricing though.

lol.. 2gb? I doubt that will make much of a difference. I mean even the highest res out right now wont use more than 1gb I bet. Remember the 8800GT and the 8600GT 1gb that performed worse than the 512mb versions? I think that the mem bus can not handle it.

Why put 2GB on a mid range card?

Its to fool the inexperienced PC users that think more VRAM = Better graphics card.

You know... The people who say ZOMG MY 1GB 7950GT PWNS your 512MB 8800GTS.

Yeah, a lot of douches who think they know pc's still go about thinking that more vram means better graphics. Thier still stuck in the days of 8mb vs. 16mb video, lol. They think just cause an X1300 has 512 that it's a high end gaming card better than anything with 256mb, lol.

the overclock button sounds pretty cool, but the 2gb ram is a waste...
