Introduction



Last week NVIDIA launched their first GeForce 9 Series card. It is based on the new G94 core which uses the same architecture as G92, it actually is G92 with less shaders inside the die. The actual number of shaders is 64, versus 128 on G92. This helps bring down the transistor count and die size, resulting in a manufacturing cost reduction.

The Biostar GeForce 9600 GT V9603GT52 we have on the testbench today follows the NVIDIA reference design to the letter. It even uses the NVIDIA silver-stripe reference cooler design. Other manufacturers put their own stickers on the cooler. I expect Biostar to do the same soon, once they have a bit of time while selling the first batch.
