GeForce 9-series launch roadmap updated
For the mid-range Nvidia will offer the GeForce 9600 GS in May, according the sources. In June, the company will launch the value-level GeForce 9500 GT based on the G96 graphics core with a reduced 128-bit memory interface. To complete the series, the GeForce 9500 GS will launch in July. Nvidia’s share of the discrete entry-level graphics card market (US$30-90) has shrunk to less than 3%. Therefore, Nvidia will not target this market with 9-series products in the near-term, and instead will promote the increasing performance of its IGP chipsets.
Apart from the welcoming of the 9600 GS, 9500 GT and 9500 GS, not much has really changed since HardOCP’s roadmap earlier in the year – just a few dates being narrowed down here and there.
