A company with an odd sounding name, VVIKOO, has decided to be the first one to break the Geforce 9600GT story. The card will launch tomorrow and these guys will have two versions to offer.
The reference card works at 650MHz core, 1800MHZ GDDR3 memory and comes with green reference PCB and dual link DVI times 2, HDMI and TV out. The card has 64 Shader units and 256-bit memory and, as we've said before, a G92 D8P chip cut in two. Nvidia calls the Geforce 9600GT chip G94, or D9P depending whom you talk to.
The second card looks more interesting, as it is clocked to 700MHz and has a copper Zalman VF-1000 cooler with two heatpipes. This one is called Geforce 9600GT Turbo and the memory works at 2000MHz. Of course, the card uses the same 256-bit DDR3 memory and has 512MB of it.
They will both be available tomorrow, but we simply don’t know who sells VVikoo; if you know, please let us know. Their URL is here.
