The 9600 performs significantly faster than the 9200, hence the price difference.

OH yeah!

The 9200 is the upgraded version of a 9000 which is basically an 8500.

The 9600 is a downgraded 9800, they differ in corespeed & rendering pipelines.

The difference:
9200 has an upgraded 8500 core
9600 a downgraded 9800 core.


9200 = directx 8.1 compatilbe
9600 = directx 9.0b compatible

9200 comes with 64`/128 mbs of ram
9600 comes with 128/256 mbs of DDR-Ram


It's worth the $100 If you wait, the 9600's go down in price as the next generation vid card is about to arrive....
