VGA Card Buyer's Guide 07/2003


The clock speeds of the ASUS V9560 Video Suite differ from the specified reference clock speed. In the following graphs, we show the performance of the card compared to a standard FX 5600.

Conclusion: The ASUS V9560 Video Suite follows in the footsteps of ASUS' old deluxe cards without, however, coming close to matching their extras. The video functions of the MSI VTDR cards are much more user-friendly and feature-rich. The V9560, on the other hand, offers a higher memory clock, which enhances 3D performance.
