    Low-profile add-on cards are a boon for builders of PCs with slim form-factor, the kind which takes form of home-theater PC (HTPC) and slim business PCs. Targeting the HTPC consumer segment, Galaxy prepares a low-profile graphics card featuring the 55nm G94 graphics processor (GPU), the new GeForce 9600 GT.

    From the picture it can be seen that the card comes with two connectors, the S-Video/composite and HDMI. There could be a HDMI-DVI dongle included for standard output, a digital audio input offers audio pass over HDMI for a single connection to the display making the card HDCP compliant. The GPU uses 650MHz/1625MHz/900MHz(Core/Shader/Memory) parameters. It features 512 MB memory, and a surprising 8-layer PCB to minimise electronic noise in dense environments such as compact HTPC chassis. It features an all solid-state capacitor design.

    Great performance/size ration IMO, my 9600GT is a champ. Depending on price a better option for those wanting a smaller graphics card yet still have decent performance have their ace, for now at least!

    looks win for a htpc case. half height systems take very little room, and 9600GT's are in a good price/performance and performance per watt category.

    remember PCB is also part of the cooling equation.

    Why HDMI? Why not DVI.. I don't think they make HDMI to DVI/VGA..
