Green GeForce 9600 GT by GIGABYTE

If you always think Graphic card is a power-hungry device that is still far away from the “Green” factor, then you have to change your mind now. GIGABYTE, the renown PC peripheral manufacturer has launched a GeForce 9600 GT Green Version with eco-friendly in mind.

This is Gigabyte GV-N96TGE-512I GeForce 9600 GT energy efficient graphic card, but no further news about how many percent the graphic card could save energy. Looks plain, no silent cooling, no big heatsink, looks like a low-end graphic card but it’s actually quite high in specs. With the 55nm G94 GPU clocked at 600MHz, 64 Stream Processors set to 1500MHz, a 512MB of GDDR3 memory @ 1800MHz, a 256-bit memory interface, DirectX 10 and 2-way SLI support, DVI, D-sub, HDMI outputs, it should be able to handle hardcore games such as Call of Duty 4 easily.

  • Personally, I’m a little suspicious of the whole “green” thing. The 9600GT was originally not very power hungry in the first place, and now Gigabyte is trying to make it even more green.

    What can this mean? It can mean one of a few things.

    Firstly, there may be a few more problems w/ RMA products, because going green probably forced Gigabyte to tweak the layout a bit, and it may be running a bit too close to the bare minimum power to run the GPU.

    It can also mean that GPU’s are starting to shift in its budget levels. Now, the 9600GT is in the low-mid budget range. This is amazing, because the 9600GT can “handle games like Call of Duty 4” easily, as you said. Don’t know if that is quite true depending on monitor size and game settings, but I will take your word for it.

    Cheers!

    • Hi There Icarus!

      Thanks for your expert opinions. Your opinion will be a valuable feedback for our users. But I need to correct your statement a bit. 9600GT “should be” able to run COD 4 easily, but you still need to check out the real benchmark before buying.

      Will post the benchmark score if someone has it for sure!

      Thanks for commenting!
