I've seen pretty much the same results in 99% of benchmarks. the Nvidia reference 9600 GT is pretty clearly faster than all other variants. even though the reference card is clocked at 650 and many others are overclocked. the evga card is clocked at 740! shouldn't it be faster, or at least equally fast? I don't get it... :headexplode:

I don't get it, why has the 9600gt almost the same score as the 8800gt... I thought 8800gt was significantly faster...

Somethings really weired about that test.

That graph shows the overclocked 9600gt's (Palit, Evga) faster then a stock clocked one (Asus). The card you have highlighted is a 8800 GT. Every review Ive seen the OC models are faster.

ASUS EN9600GT: 10840
EVGA 9600GT SSC: 11896
PALIT 9600GT Sonic: 11638

I am confused..

You have highlighted the 8800GT...which is as expected is faster than the 9600GT.

On the top there is 9600GT in SLI which is..from the looks of it not overclocked...and is in the lead.

I am thinking you wanted to high light the 9600GT on top but...didn't realize it was in SLI.
