Launched late in August 2008, the GeForce 9400GT is the long awaited budget model based on the 9th generation of Nvidia's GeForce graphics card design. With an MSRP of $59 and years ahead of competing onboard video from the likes of Intel, the 9400GT is nothing to skoff at. Designed to display desktop resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 and makes viewing high definition content a breeze, the 9400GT can also handle light gaming on lower resolutions. While the 9400GT does offer new levels of graphics and media processing power at a new low in terms of pricing, the technology is far from bleeding edge. With the 10th generation of Nvidia cards now months into mainstream use, the 9400GT is in simply an overclocked previous generation 8500GT.
