Other details of the D9M family have already surfaced. ChileHardware published slides yesterday claiming the GeForce 9600 requires a 400W power supply that requires 26A on the 12V rail. Unlike previous mid-range GeForce cards, the D9M will require a 6-pin supplementary power connector. NVIDIA publicly confirmed other details of D9M: DirectX 10.1 support, Shader Model 4.0, OpenGL 2.1 and PCIe 2.0 support just to name a few. Further documentation from NVIDIA claims the 9600 GT will also support the Quantum Effects physics processing engine. Like all NVIDIA processors, the GeForce 9600 is also HDCP compatible, though final support still depends on vendor implementation.

For reference, the board was previously believed to operate at 500MHz/1000MHz. DailyTech also note that the board supports DX10.1 – a topic which is currently being questioned
