A 128-bit version of NVIDIA's GeForce 8400GS has appeared in China, DigiTimes reports:
The 128-bit version GeForce 8400GS chip is very similar to Nvidia's GeForce 8500GT due to both graphics cores adopting the same G3-128 package, but the 8400GS's core frequency is lower, noted the sources. The original GeForce 8400GS adopts a G3-64 package, explained the sources.
Some graphics card makers think these 128-bit GeForce 8400GS could be GeForce 8500GT chips which did not pass testing and were downgraded to clear stocks. However, the makers think the chips still offer a good level of performance for their price.
