XFX GeForce 9600GT XXX Alpha Dog Review :: Test setup and software

04-04-2008 · Category: Hardware - Video Cards

By Doc Overclock

We tested the new 9600GT cards in both single and SLI mode and we have now also switched our tests to include resolutions up to 1920X1200 on our new 24 test monitor. All tests were run with the setting at high and with 4X AA and 16X AF settings enabled. All tests are run three times and then balanced for accuracy as no tests runs exactly the same twice. We use strictly Windows Vista for all tests as it is the only OS with native DX10 support.
