The ASUS RADEON 9600SE is a graphics board device built on the ATI Radeon 9800SE chip. The device features a 128 MB DDR memory and the AGO 2x, 4x, and 8x interface. The memory is packaged in eight chips with four chips on both the front and rear sides. This is situated within the advanced BGA packaging further including a 128-bit memory bus. The ASUS RADEON 9600SE has increased the frequencies of the graphic chip measuring up to 400 MHz in ATI Radeon 9600 Pro to 500 MHz in ATI Radeon 9600 XT. In contrast, the Samsung K4D263238E-GC2A produced its memory and presents a 2.8 ns access time which equals to around 350 MHz of memory operation or 700 MHz. This device’s memory operates at a frequency of 300 MHz or 600 MHz level. Asus memory chips are installed by Samsung and built by ATI and NVIDIA. These chips operate at 500 MHz as per specifications.

The ASUS RADEON 9600SE device also implements a cooling facility. It is an average sized fan that is built on a solid radiator wrapping both the chip itself and memory chips situated on the front side of the PCB. In this architecture, the whole radiator covering the chips of the PCB front side is decreased to zero. ASUS RADEON 9600SE has an engraved Asus emblem wrapping the two last memory chips on the front side of the PCB. The ASUS RADEON 9600SE graphics board device has a standard output set that includes analogous, digital, and TV-OUT types. To implement the TV-OUT, third party codecs are not provided by the board and should be purchased by the user separately. The supporting features however are already found in the Radeon 9800SE chip. The board also uses Semtech’s two-phase SC1175CSW as a voltage regulator. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and ASUS RADEON 9600SE errors before installing any driver updates.
