NVIDIA stays relevant by releasing a $59 budget-oriented video card

by Reads (986)

NVIDIA has taken a beating in recent months with the introduction of rival ATI/AMD’s release of the updated Radeon series of graphics cards.  As a result, they’ve been forced to lower the prices almost across the board just to remain an attractive choice in the market.  Today they’ve introduced a new budget desktop graphics card, the GeForce 9400GT. 

The new card offers DirectX 10 compatibility, support for up to 2560×1600 resolutions with HDCP, and NVIDIA’s new PureVideo HD technology for hardware decoding of high definition content.  It also brings CUDA-enhanced applications within the reach of the budget card affcianados.  The 9400GT comes with 512MB GRAM as standard and retails for $59.99.  Alternate 1GB versions are selling for $74.99.  The cards are already available at

Newegg.
