Size and compatibility
Information on GeForce 9600M GT's compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus, if the video card is inserted into a slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
|Laptop size||medium sized|
|Supplementary power connectors||None|
Parameters of memory installed on GeForce 9600M GT: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors have no dedicated memory and use a shared part of system RAM instead.
|Memory type||GDDR2, GDDR3|
|Maximum RAM amount||1 GB||of 128 (Radeon Instinct MI250X)|
|Memory bus width||128 Bit||of 19000 (GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB)|

Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on GeForce 9600M GT. As a rule, this section is relevant only for desktop reference graphics cards, since for notebook ones the availability of certain video outputs depends on the laptop model, while non-reference desktop models can (though not necessarily will) bear a different set of video ports.
|Display Connectors||No outputs|
APIs supported by GeForce 9600M GT, sometimes including their particular versions.
|OpenGL||3.3||of 4.6 (GeForce GTX 1080 Mobile)|
Synthetic benchmark performance of GeForce 9600M GT. The combined score is measured on a 0-100 point scale.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.

3DMark Vantage Performance
3DMark Vantage is an outdated DirectX 10 benchmark using 1280x1024 screen resolution. It taxes the graphics card with two scenes, one depicting a girl escaping some militarized base located within a sea cave, the other displaying a space fleet attack on a defenseless planet. It was discontinued in April 2017, and Time Spy benchmark is now recommended to be used instead.
