The AIW version of the 9600XT runs better than its non-AIW cousin and can hold its own in the mid-range market without problem. Since the card offers true Direct-X 9 support all the latest games played without problem. In addition to the games tested in our performance evaluation I played Far Cry and Splinter Cell Pandora's Tomorrow as they were the most recently released game titles I could get my hands on. Far Cry looked great with everything turned up to maximum but the game was a bit chugging, set to medium the game looked really good and played without problems. Performance wise this is a solid card for its price class.
