NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GSO: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GSO

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 9600 GSO sales 28 April 2008 at a recommended price of $49.99 . This is Tesla architecture desktop card based on 65 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 384 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 0.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 192 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 38.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 9" (22.9 cm). 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 105 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 3.26 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
