NVIDIA GeForce 9M Leak

NVIDIA has inadvertently confirmed two new mobile graphics chipsets that should be available in the near future, say enthusiasts from nVision. A discovery made in the device list for NVIDIA's ForceWare 169.09 drivers reveals both a GeForce 9300M G and a GeForce 9500M GS present despite the lack of an official announcement. Few details are explicitly revealed by the leak, though it makes clear that both chipsets share the same core architecture as the GeForce 8M series. The naming scheme also reflects a similar strategy to today's mobile graphics with a basic x300 model providing low-end graphics and an x500 model addressing performance for mid-range notebooks.

The similarity also hints at feature support such as HDMI video output support for TVs as well as full hardware decoding of HD video when exposed by software. Desktop 9-series video cards are also now confirmed by extension, given the company's past history of sharing model numbers. The relatively finished nature of the driver list hints that an announcement is imminent and is most likely to appear by early 2008.
