AMD, Nvidia leaks at ASUS

Through the now-ended CES expo, ASUS has leaked the existence of two more upcoming video cards. In the first quarter of the year, the company's M50Sa and F8Sp notebooks will carry AMD's Mobility Radeon 3650, a PCIe 2.0 card with support for Microsoft's DirectX 10.1 standard. While AMD has officially announced the companion 3600, the 3650 has only been mentioned in third-party accounts, making ASUS' news the first word from a proper vendor.

Previously unmentioned in any capacity is Nvidia's GeForce 9500M GS, which will also ship in the first quarter inside the V1Sn, M51Sn, and F8Sn notebooks. ASUS will only say however that the card supports DirectX 10, Shader Model 4.0, and "true" high dynamic range (HDR) lighting. Like the 9500M GT, the GS should be a replacement for cards in either the 8400M or 8600M mid-range series.
