    Nvidia will release the GeForce 8400GS the 19th of June. If the US target price of $45 for a graphic card supporting DirectX 10 might sound attractive, the memory bus of 64bit is two times smaller than the GeForce 8500GS's that features the same G86 and runs at the same GPU/memory frequencies: 450/400MHz.

    According to the figures communicated by the Californian manufacturer, the performances of this card would be slightly inferior to the GeForce 7300GT. We remind you that this card is, from our point of view, the bare minimum to play while accepting serious compromises. It is also important to point out that the latter has a memory bus of 128bit and that the performance gap might be in practice (much) more important.

    Under those circumstances, the points of the support of DirectX 10 or the performances announced as being much higher than the Radeon HD 2400 Pro are almost inexistent. This is all the more true that the Aero interface of Windows Vista works with DirectX 9 and perfectly runs with the latest entry level GPUs of this generation. In short, this graphic card is mostly for OEMs who want to attract customers with advanced but unusable functionalities in practice and small prices.
