ZOTAC Expands Low-Profile Product Lineup with GeForce 9600 GT LP

ZOTAC International, an award winning manufacturing of graphics cards and motherboards, today unleashes a new high-performance graphics card fit for low-profile applications – the new ZOTAC GeForce 9600GT LP. The ZOTAC GeForce 9600GT LP delivers intense 3D visuals and breathtaking 3D performance to small form factor system users with limited expansion capabilities. Powered by 64 stream processors, the ZOTAC GeForce 9600GT LP is ready to take on the latest DirectX 10, OpenGL 2.1, NVIDIA CUDA and PhysX enabled 3D games and applications. A wide 256-bit memory interface joins the 64 stream processors to 512MB of high-speed GDDR3 video memory for phenomenal performance at high-resolutions and high levels of anti-aliasing for smooth frame rates and jagged-free visuals.

“Small form factor systems are becoming more popular nowadays with the advent of low power systems and slick designs; however, small form factor systems are limited in terms of expansion capabilities and typically require low-profile expansion cards. Our new ZOTAC GeForce 9600GT LP enables small form factor system owners to upgrade their systems to GeForce 9-class graphics with CUDA and PhysX technologies for high-performance 3D graphics,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International.

CUDA technology enables the ZOTAC GeForce 9600GT LP to go beyond gaming graphics to enable everyday applications to harness the power of the graphics processor. With CUDA technology, image and video editing, distributed computing and video transcoding tasks can be accelerated using the graphics processor for greater performance than quad-core processors.

“CUDA technology is being adopted by major software developers such as Adobe and Elemental Technologies. Popular applications such as Adobe Photoshop, Premiere and Elemental Technologies Badaboom are able to harness the power of the ZOTAC GeForce 9600GT LP to speed up processing performance,” Mr. Berger added.

NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology enables smooth high-definition video playback with hardware-decode acceleration for low CPU utilization. PureVideo HD video processing algorithms deinterlace, scale and enhance standard-definition content to near-high-definition levels of visual quality for vivid images that users wondering if its standard-definition content being viewed.

The ZOTAC GeForce 9600GT LP is backed by an extended warranty, with user registration. With the ZOTAC Extended Warranty, customers can expect long-term and hassle-free reliability from the GeForce 9600GT LP.

would be nice, if you could also SLI them.

I'm pretty sure SLI works w/o a bridge (if you were to put it into the matx X58 systems low profile etc) just performance won't scale so well due to the lack of a bridge and being forced to communicate over the pci-e bus

Anyone can confirm this? Would be pretty nice for a home theater PC.

granted this review is kinda dated and done w/ the 7series http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=6683

if anyone has a sli system wanna yank out their dongle... and let us know what happens

though the driver still limits you from going tri-sli dongleless... only dual card bridgeless sli

most people who will be buying this card dont need sli, this is for back up rigs small factor systems and htpc

most this is designed to run is movies like take the load from the cpu, do some steam games like team fortress 2 and CS:S and maybe run an mmo like world of warcraft

these are for media rigs and small factor systems so i dont know who would sli in those

Uh, have you seen two 9600GT in SLi? The scaling is pretty surprising, just a bit over a 9800GTX+. Two of these (if they had the proper SLi bridge, of course) would be amazing considering their power consumption.

We aren't talking about putting two 9500GT's in SLI here, you're talking about two 9600GT's -- two of those actually put out very impressive performance, about the equivalent of an 3870X2, give or take.
