PNY's GeForce 9500 GT

The GeForce 9500 GT is marketed as the “perfect graphics card for multimedia and gaming users," with Blu-ray central to PNY’s message. The firm claims that whilst watching a Blu-ray title on your machine, the card helps to reduce CPU utilisation and lower overall power consumption.

Toshiba makes a similar claim of its Cell-based SpursEngine graphics chip, which features in the manufacturer’s Qosmio laptops. Just don’t ask Toshiba how the chip affects battery life.

The GeForce 9500 GT packs on 512MB of DDR 3 memory, in addition to an HDTV output. It also ships with a copy of videogame Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts.

PNY’s 9500 GT is available now, but an offical price hasn't been confirmed.
