[vr-zone] Nvidia Preparing G96 (D9M) Card For Launch

Nvidia plans to add another member to the GeForce 9 series soon with their G96 (D9M) card for the mainstream market. This G96 card is meant to replace the current GeForce 8500 GT card so most likely the official marketing name will be GeForce 9500 GT. Final specs are 550MHz core clock, 512MB (32MX16) GDDR2 memories clocked at 1GHz on 128-bit memory interface. It is using P729 PCB that has DVI-I, VGA and HDTV functions.

A new core architecture! But the rest of the card's specs seem pretty low.

128 bit memory interface means uber fail.

The new core on it may make it an interesting HTPC card though. Hope it's cheap.

I never understood why the lower-end cards have new cores while the high-end cards have older cores.....

Probably to get the kinks out of the newer cores before transitioning the high end stuff over. The high-end GPUs are built on tried and true processes so why mess with it?

The "newer" core is probably just a cut down version of the G92 anyways so it's not based on a new architecture.

This is actually a very similar core to the G84 core found in the 8600GT/GTS series. Should be interesting to see the benchmarks from the die shrink.

Yeah an insult, because everyone is going to have an 9500GT right?

Nope.

Why does it seem like theres no advancements being made here?

G80...G92...and now G96 but its not any kind of improvement.

I don't get it.
