TwinTech and Vvikoo overclocked 9600GT, 5-way roundup

Videocards/VGA Reviews by geoffrey @ 2008-05-19

For quite some time now NVIDIA has allowed their partners to sell their reference products at overclocked speeds with a custom VGA cooler. Today we take a look at two of such none-reference clocked 9600GT video cards, one from newcomer Vvikoo and one from last year startup, TwinTech. We´ll investigate how the extra clocks make the product stand out compared to 3 other samples we have tested before.

    Closed-up pictures

    Contents of the Vvikoo box look quite interesting. We found SP/DIF cables which are not always included and we got a pc game for free. Another satisfying fact is that Vvikoo put a Zalman Pure Copper (VF1000) heatsink on their video card, we all know this heatsink is performing very well and is a respected product among the enthusiasts.

    On front of the card we found not only two dual-link DVI-I connectors, no Vvikoo also added HDMI connectivity and they even give you a DisplayPort connector! The addition of sideways protection should prevent you from crushing the GPU core when installing the videocard without really having an influence on video card cooling.

    Vvikoo also came up with a custom board which has triple phase GPU power circuitry, just like the TwinTech card we saw on previous page.
