    Card Layout:

    The specifications are what you would expect from a Radeon 9600 graphics card.

    You may look at it and think what a puny little fan that is- the cooling system looks a lot smaller than the other Radeon cards (9500,9700,9800) and your right, it is. This is because the Radeon 9600 Pro is based on the 0.13 process. The GPU remains much cooler than its counterparts and therefore requires a smaller, and of course, quieter cooling solution.
     

    When the cards are compared (9600 on left, 9500 on the right) it is quite easy to see the vast reduction in cooling required thanks to the new processor technology.

    A closer look and we find that FIC has used Samsung's  K4D263238E-GC memory modules. Each module has a 350Mhz max freq. and a 700Mbps/pin max data rate.

    The A96P is also equipped with the now pretty much standard VGA, S-Video, and DVI connectors for all of your viewing needs. Time to test the cards and find the best buy for your money.
