[tcMag] Asus intros first Matrix series graphics card

post #1 of 31

Revealed about a month ago, the Republic of Gamers-branded Matrix series GeForce 9600 GT has now been officially introduced by Asus(tek). Coming with a black PCB and stock GPU, shader and memory clocks - 650, 1625 and 1800 MHz respectively, the new G94 card is trying to set itself apart from the 9600 GT pack with a new cooling solution and an advanced under- and over-clocking features.

The most visible thing, the card's cooler, takes up two slots, is equipped with two heatpipes and has a fan controlled by a GPU loading detection system, meaning the number of rotations per minute will go up or down, depending on how hot the 65nm-built GPU gets. The main 'plus' of the new Matrix card is the Intelligent Super Hybrid Engine, a feature which automatically adjusts the card's fan speed, voltages and frequencies, depending on the workload. This will enable the card to save power when in 2D mode and offer extra performance, through overclocking, when gaming or running benchmarks. The system is able to take the card all the way up to 800 MHz (GPU), 2000 MHz (shaders) and 2200 MHz (memory) if needed so users should be extra careful when the Intelligent Super Hybrid Engine is enabled and set to default. Luckily, Asus has thrown in three more profiles - Optimized Mode, Gaming Mode and Power Saving Mode for those who want to play it safe.

Unfortunately the EN9600GT MATRIX/HTDI/512M has yet to receive a suggested retail price tag or a retail availability date.

that is a great looking card and the features sound very impressive, too bad they don't offer an 8800GT version or possibly a 9800GTX version.

Nice looking cooler, now someone needs to test how good the cooler is and tell ASUS to put it on the new 4 series if it is.

If looks equaled performance, this card would beat GTX 280 cards in SLI.
