NVIDIA will soon release its GeForce 9400 GS graphics cards but according to FUD Zilla it will only be available to OEMs and system integrators. The site says it's a cheaper version of the GeForce 9500 GT with lower clockspeeds.
The card will be slower and a modestly clocked version of 9500GT, but it will also end up cheaper. Nvidia did the same thing last year when it launched the quite successful Geforce 8500GT for retail and 8400GS for OEMs and system integrators.
The time of upgrades have come and Nvidia is ready for back to school, and it looks that it can capture quite a lot of market, at least before RV710 and RV730 comes to game. ATI's answer comes in September, in very late Q3 2008.
