Building a new system soon, found this old 384mb nvidia 9600 GSO lying around and figured I should sell it or something. How much would I get for it if I walked in to my local comp store (Obv it will vary but I mean AVERAGE price)
Ty in advance
Edit : its 4 months old I think. Great condition, hasnt been touched.
The 768MB card is also weaker. Both those cards use DDR2 and have less then 96SP.
Nah, the 384mb and 768mb cards are 192-bit and have a 96 SP G92 processors. The revision was a 256-bit 48SP G94 based processor with memory in multiples of 512mb.
The 768mb card did use DDR2 more often like you said(which made it slower) but the processor was the same.
Nvidia simply released to many cards with the name of 9600GSO. I was going to "object" to what you wrote when I realized you wrote what I meant. I don't remember the 768MB (which did normally have 96SP) having a 192bit bus, but I wouldn't be surprised if Nvidia did make such a card. Its simply to hard to remember all of these cards, more so once you include the overseas only cards like the Galaxy 9600GSO which could unlock into an 8800GTX. Shame on Nvidia for doing this to us.
Or even worse the "low power" 9600GT by XFX that was actually a 9600 GSO(48 SP variety.) This kind of stuff may be why Nvidia dropped XFX.
Is it just me that notices that XFX were the ones who seemed to have had the odd naming schemes but Nvidia are the ones who get the blame for it. Which as you say jyjjy is why they might have been dropped.
