Asus Motherboard with 9400 GPU  (Source: NVIDIA)
New GeForce 9400 and 9300 GPUs feature 16 cores

NVIDIA officially announced today that it has new GeForce integrated GPUs that will be available soon on motherboards form the typical NVIDIA partners. The new integrated GPUs include the GeForce 9400 and 9300 and are intended for desktop PCs using Intel CPUs.

NVIDIA says that the new GPUs offer full system I/O and discrete-level performance in a package half the size of previous integrated GPUs. The NVIDIA 9400 and 9300 GPUs have 16 cores and are CUDA capable. NVIDIA even promises that the integrated GPUs are capable of playing the latest top PC games and Blu-ray movies.

Dr. Jon Peddie said in a statement, "These new mGPUs give NVIDIA a big advantage over other integrated graphics chips. By doing so much parallel processing on a single chip, they can accelerate the new visual computing applications people are getting, and at a reasonable price. The GeForce 9400 and 9300 mGPUs set a new standard for what users should expect from today’s more mainstream desktop systems."

The new 9-series motherboard GPUs support NVIDIA PureVideo HD and are capable of offloading all video processing from the CPU to the GPU. The GPUs support advanced audio and video including uncompressed LPMC 7.1, dual-link DVI and HDMI.

Support for NVIDIA's Hybrid SLI technology is included and boost performance up to 70% higher than the motherboard GPU alone. NVIDIA says that motherboards using the new GPU will ship this month from XFX, ASUS, ECS, EVGA, Foxconn, Galaxy, and more.

It only says that it is capable of playing the latest high-end games. It doesn't say how well. I use 3x Radeon HD 3870 water cooled at 1000MHz GPU speed with CrossFireX and it plays Bioshock on a 2560x1600 screen beautifully. I assume the same setup would crawl with a built-in solution, but that's not the target market for integrated graphics is it...

Well no sh*t.. Do you really expect a mainstream system to perform at a level that perhaps less than .001% of all PCs in the world perform at(like yours)? Come on, the fact that an integrated graphics mobo can play most games good enough so that a good gamer can still perform well is a great thing.

Perhaps you are afraid you'll get dominated by someone running a system with integrated graphics?
