Chinese website XFastest has been playing with a pre-release NVIDIA G96 based GeForce 9500GT graphics card, and they took the opportunity to not only take a bunch of quality photos showing off the card, but also to put it through its paces in some synthetic benchmarks including 3DMark'05/06 and Ozone3D FurMark.
The results hold much promise for the success of this little entry-level card. We're used to seeing absolute dismal performance in this market segment, but scores of 12331 in 3DMark'05 and 5894 in '06 are a massive leap forward and it should be a steal at around $50/$60 USD.
You can see all the results here. The card is slated for a July 28 launch date.
