By looking at the benchmarks, what I can describe HIS Excalibur Radeon 9600XT as impressive yet stable. With the results that I've obtained, it is not doubt that it performed much better than its older sibling, Radeon 9600Pro. This is made possible thanks to the increase clock speed on both core as well as the memory.
As for the bundling offers, I am very glad to see that HIS has done very well in this sector by providing some good software qualities except for the 6-in-1 games, it mainly consists of demos as demos does't offer any much value to the products. However, HIS compensates this by bundling the most anticipated games of the year, Half-Life 2 coupon which you could get the game by downloading it off ATi site or ordering a copy of it. As for the overclocking part, it managed to perform well and I must say that if you are looking forward to getting the most out of the card, I suggest that you should get 3rd party GPU coolers. It was because current GPU cooler isn't just enough to handle the heat job! However, you don't have to bother getting ramsinks though because HIS has provided them by default!
So, if you're currently shopping for a brand new ATi card with a limited budget, I would whole heartily recommend you to grab HIS Excalibur Radeon 9600XT, as the current retail price cost probably around USD180 (RM684) only!
