ZOTAC GeForce 9600GT 512MB AMP! Edition

Video Cards & GPUs

NVIDIA GeForce GPU

In our second 9600GT review we see if the well increased clockspeeds of ZOTAC’s AMP! Edition keep it ahead of the 3870.

Published Feb 20, 2008 11:00 PM CST   |   Updated Tue, Nov 3 2020 7:04 PM CST

Manufacturer: ZOTAC

13 minute read time

Introduction

ZOTAC really seem to be on top of the graphics card releases. We only started seeing their products last year but they seemed to get the hang of making a good graphics card pretty fast.

As with most companies they have their standard reference design card but they also have their funky overclocked models. Sure there are plenty of other manufacturers with OC models such as ASUS who have the TOP line-up of cards, while Palit have their Sonic line-up.

But what makes ZOTAC stand out so much with their AMP! line-up is that the clocks they tend to put on these cards are very aggressive and really make it stand out from the competition. We saw that the 9600GT from Galaxy performed around the same as a HD 3870 with stock clock speeds; with the increased clocks on the ZOTAC AMP! Edition 9600GT we will have to see if it can consistently take the lead.

The Package

The front of the box pretty much follows the same formula that we’ve seen over the past few months from ZOTAC. We see the brand at the top of the card with some NVIDIA logos and the model across the bottom.

The right of the box shows us the card is an AMP! Edition. We can also see some of the main features like 512MB of GDDR3 memory, Dual Dual-Link DVI, HDCP, HDMI adapter and more.

The back of the box mentions the brand and the fact that it’s an AMP! Edition again. We also have a bit of a blurb on the 9600GT along with some more details of some of the features that the card has to offer.

Paperwork wise there isn’t a whole lot; we have a quick installation guide along with a driver CD.

The cable department is a bit healthier though; we have the standard molex to PCI-E connector, DVI to VGA connector and component out cable. We also have a DVI to HDMI connector along with another cable that sits between your graphics card and soundcard or motherboard so that HDMI can be carried out through the HDMI convertor.

We continue to see the lack of any games bundled with the card, but ZOTAC continue to make the card stand out from the competition with big overclocks. We’ll have a closer look at those shortly.

The Card

With the box out the way it’s time to move onto the card, which when looking at it instantly resembles an 8800GT. We have the single slot cooler that manages to take up the whole front of the card with a largish fan sitting to the right.

The cooler has a giant sticker that goes all the way across and mentions the brand and model along with the fact that it’s an AMP! Edition variant. The cooler really just reflects what we saw on the front of the box.

Moving around the card it’s a pretty standard affair; we have a single PCI Express power connector that sits at the back of the card and as we move around to the top of the card we have a single SLI connector. Next to the SLI connector we can also see the little plug that the extra cable included in the package goes into.

Last but not least we move to the I/O side of things and we just have two Dual Link DVI connectors and a single TV-Out port.

Specifications

While we saw some pretty decent clocks on the Galaxy card, ZOTAC have really turned the amp dial to 11 on this card.

While both cards share the same 2000MHz memory clock, the ante is upped with the core and shader clock moving from 675MHz/1625MHz to 725MHz on the core and 1750MHz on the shader; quite an impressive jump indeed.

3DMark06 is the very latest version of the «Gamers Benchmark» from FutureMark. The newest version of 3DMark expands on the tests in 3DMark05 by adding graphical effects using Shader Model 3.0 and HDR (High Dynamic Range lighting) which will push even the best DX9 graphics cards to the extremes.

3DMark06 also focuses on not just the GPU but the CPU using the AGEIA PhysX software physics library to effectively test single and Dual Core processors.

We can see the heavily overclocked ZOTAC offering manages to keep right on the tail of the HD 3870 at the higher resolutions, while it just beats it out at the lower.

Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is the latest Quake incarnation to make it out of the iD labs and carries with it a fast paced experience that manages to place a good amount of strain on your graphics card.

We use a custom made time demo which shows a bit of everything and manages to give us a good solid benchmark for the graphics cards that we test.

The OpenGL based Quake Wars also favors the NVIDIA based 9600GT with about a 10% increase in performance against the HD 3870.

Following the formulae that made Unreal Tournament so great the third installment to the series has hit us recently with better than ever graphics. The games uses the latest Unreal Engine which like most modern day games when maxed out puts the pressure on our lineup of graphics cards.

Only at the highest resolution does the HD 3870 get a slight lead on the 9600GT from ZOTAC under Unreal Tournament 3, the lower resolutions find the 9600GT come out ahead.

High Quality AA and AF

Our high quality tests let us separate the men from the boys and the ladies from the girls. If the cards weren’t struggling before they will start to now.

3DMark06

It comes as no surprise that when we move to testing with AA and AF on that the NVIDIA offerings come out ahead.

Half Life 2 (Episode Two HDR)

We can see under our source based game that only 2 FPS separates all cards.

World In Conflict

We again see the NVIDIA offerings come out way ahead under our high quality testing environment.

3DMark06 is the very latest version of the «Gamers Benchmark» from FutureMark. The newest version of 3DMark expands on the tests in 3DMark05 by adding graphical effects using Shader Model 3. 0 and HDR (High Dynamic Range lighting) which will push even the best DX9 graphics cards to the extremes.

3DMark06 also focuses on not just the GPU but the CPU using the AGEIA PhysX software physics library to effectively test single and Dual Core processors.

Windows XP paints a similar picture with the AMP! Edition from ZOTAC beating out the HD 3870 at all resolutions.

CINEBENCH is a real-world test suite that assesses your computer’s performace capabilities. MAXON CINEBENCH is based on MAXON’s award-winning animation software, CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. MAXON software has been used in blockbuster movies such as Spider-Man, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia and many more.

MAXON CINEBENCH runs several tests on your computer to measure the performance of the main processor and the graphics card under real world circumstances. The benchmark application makes use of up to 16 CPUs or CPU cores and is available for Windows (32-bit and 64-Bit) and Macintosh (PPC and Intel-based).

What’s interesting is that under Windows XP the HD 3870 is able to perform better in CINEBENCH with it just being able to sneak ahead of the 8800 offerings here.

World in Conflict is a real-time strategy video game by Massive Entertainment and to be published by Sierra Entertainment for Windows (DX9 and DX10) and the Xbox 360.

The game is set in 1989 where economic troubles cripple the Soviet Union and threaten to dissolve it. However, the title pursues a «what if» scenario where, in this case, the Soviet Union does not collapse and instead pursues a course of war to remain in power. It is an intensive new game is sure to put plenty of stress on even the latest graphics cards and we use the built-in benchmarking for our testing.

We again see in WIC the more important minimum FPS favors the 9600GT offering over the HD 3870.

By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original, and adding startling new realism, responsiveness and new HDR technology, Half-Life 2 Episode Two opens the door to a world where the player’s presence affects everything around him, from the physical environment to the behaviors even the emotions of both friends and enemies.

We benchmark Half Life 2 Episode Two with our own custom timedemos as to avoid possible driver optimizations using the «record demo_name» command and loading the timedemo with the «timedemo demo_name» command — For a full list of the commands, click here.

Windows XP shows us the 9600GT is able to beat out the HD 3870 at all resolutions.

Temperature and Sound Tests

Temperature Tests

With the TES 1326 Infrared Thermometer literally in hand we found ourselves getting real-world temperatures from the products we test at load (3D clock speeds).

There are two places we pull temperature from — the back of the card directly behind the core and if the card is dual slot and has an exhaust point we also pull a temperate from there, as seen in the picture.

The card manages to come in slightly warmer then the 8800GT, but stays under the HD 3870.

Sound Tests

Pulling out the TES 1350A Sound Level Meter we find ourselves quickly yelling into the top of it to see how loud we can be.

After five minutes of that we get a bit more serious and place the device two CM away from the fan on the card to find the maximum noise level of the card when idle (2D mode) and in load (3D mode).

Noise levels are similar to the Leadtek card, though it does offer an aftermarket Zalman cooler against the stock cooler that we see on the ZOTAC offering.

Power Consumption Tests

Using our new PROVA Power Analyzer WM-01 or «Power Thingy» as it has become quickly known as to our readers, we are now able to find out what kind of power is being used by our test system and the associated graphics cards installed. Keep in mind; it tests the complete system (minus LCD monitor, which is plugged directly into AC wall socket).

There are a few important notes to remember though; while our maximum power is taken in 3DMark06 at the same exact point, we have seen in particular tests the power being drawn as much as 10% more. We test at the exact same stage every time; therefore tests should be very consistent and accurate.

The other thing to remember is that our test system is bare minimum — only a 7,200RPM SATA-II single hard drive is used without CD ROM or many cooling fans.

So while the system might draw 400 watts in our test system, placing it into your own PC with a number of other items, the draw is going to be higher.

Power levels between the cards are quite similar, although under load the 9600GT does draw the least.

Final Thoughts

ZOTAC really manage to kick it up a notch with the AMP! Edition of the 9600GT. We saw in the Galaxy review that the 9600GT was able to perform around the same as the HD 3870, sometimes a little slower and sometimes a little faster, but more often than not it seemed to struggle at the higher resolution.

With the decent performance bump that ZOTAC has offered here the card manages to almost consistently beat out the HD 3870. The good news is though, if you want to do a bit of overclocking yourself you should be able to get your card up to similar speeds of the ZOTAC, meaning that you should get something that is able to outperform the HD 3870 consistently.

While we again don’t see the inclusion of a game in the package, it’s not really a big deal; more often than not we see a game we don’t really want in the package. What you get instead is a card that is able to stand out from the competition. We manage to see this over and over again from ZOTAC and it’s why we’ve been so impressed with their products since the company launched.

This is a really winning formula and it will probably be one of the fastest 9600GT offerings we get our hands on. The only company that may bring something to compete with these speeds is ASUS with a TOP variation of the card, but only time will tell.

If you’re not interested in overclocking yourself and you can hunt down an AMP! Edition 9600GT from ZOTAC we would highly recommend it for people looking for a card that should come in at under $250 AUD.

Reviews of the GeForce GT 9600

I can’t tell you about the power supply. Since I did not buy from us in Russia. Ordered from China Super Flower 600w lasts a very long time, despite the bad reviews about it. I advise you to look at some reviews about power supplies, they will tell you which ones are worth taking and which ones are not. Here is an example of the Nitroxenus channel. About the processor, not only the frequency plays a role in games, cores, cache, etc.

I’m a crocodile here and all, but 1) the newest game on this list is almost 5 years old, so what’s the point in the video 2) you don’t have a full 9600 GT, but a «strangled» version of Green, which released for rogue fuckers in 2009 excerpts 😀
ZY I had a chance to conduct a similar test (not to fucking do it) on a Skylek i7 6700, 8 gb DDR4 and FPS at 900r was a little higher than yours, about a difference of 3-5 frames, well, a stump, always a stump, even a hyperstump friezes slightly.

NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT in benchmark results

Benchmarks help determine the performance in standard tests NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT. We have compiled a list of the most famous benchmarks in the world so that you can get accurate results for each of them (see description). Pre-testing the graphics card is especially important when there are high loads, so that the user can see how the graphics processor copes with calculations and data processing.

Three more GeForce 9600GT, including passive / Video cards

Because GeForce 9 graphics cardsWe have already tested the 600GT before, in today’s testing we decided to do just two tests — the 3DMark 05 and 3DMark 06 packages, as well as the Crysis game with the version 1.2 patch installed. But before we start getting acquainted with the test results, here is a summary table with the clock frequencies of all three of its participants:

Video card name GPU clock, core/shader unit, MHz (BIOS clock, MHz) Effective video memory clock, MHz
(frequency in BIOS, MHz)
Elitegroup 9600GT 680 / 1750 (680 / 1728) 1857 (1850)
Forsa 9600GT 650 / 1600 (650 / 1625) 1800 (1800)
Gainward BLISS 9600GT 700 / 1750 (700 / 1750) 2000 (2000)

Now we present the configuration of our test stand, which, however, is well known to our regular readers:

And finally — about the versions of the drivers used by us for tests. So, ForceWare 174.16 drivers were used for GeForce 9600GT video cards, ForceWare 169.21 for GeForce 8800GT, and Catalyst 8.3 for Radeon HD3870. Video cards GeForce 8800GT and Radeon HD3870 were taken by us for comparison, that is, as competing solutions. Well, let’s get started. As always, we’ll start reviewing the test results with 3DMark tests.

All test participants are at about the same level, and if we talk specifically about video cards of the GeForce 9 series600GT, they lined up according to their clock speeds: the Gainward BLISS 9600GT video card took the first place, as it has the highest clock speeds, the second place went to the ECS 9600GT, and the last place was taken by the Forsa 9600GT. Now let’s take a look at the results of testing in the game Crysis, which we produced with anti-aliasing disabled and 16x anisotropic filtering.

In the game Crysis — the same picture: the first place was taken by the video card Gainward BLISS 9600GT, second place goes to ECS 9600GT, and last place is occupied by Forsa 9600GT. Compare with the results of previous tests — they do not differ much. Of course, in Crysis there is a small increase in speed, but after all, we installed patch 1.2 and changed the test. Thus, we see that all of them, in the sense of GeForce 9600GT video cards, are approximately the same, and the main differences lie in the configuration, cooling system and overclocking potential.

Terminals

As we have already said, all the tested video cards GeForce 9600GT are close in speed, and their main differences lie in the configuration, cooling system and overclocking potential, which, of course, is not important for everyone. Oh yes, factory overclocking should be noted. It is noteworthy that now even passive video cards are overclocked, which we saw with the example of a video card from Elitegroup. By the way, it showed very, very good results, and we can safely recommend it not only as a basis for a home theater, but also as a video card for an inexpensive gaming computer. Fortunately, the speed of video cards of the 9 series600GT is at a pretty high level. As for the other two participants in today’s testing, the video card from Gainward deserves attention, which is equipped with such modern interfaces as HDMI and Display Port, and, moreover, is initially overclocked quite well. Unless it upsets the lack of an S-video connector, but for owners of modern monitors and TVs with digital interfaces, this is unlikely to be a problem. The Forsa graphics card didn’t show anything out of the ordinary as it matches the reference GeForce 9 graphics card perfectly.600 GT. Unless overclockers will have to think about either improving or replacing the cooling system, which is not enough in all cases. However, the overclocking potential varies from card to card, so you may not have to do anything with it.
