NVIDIA GeForce 8400M G

NVIDIA GeForce 8400M G

NVidia GeForce 8400M G is the DirectX 10 capable successor of the GeForce Go 7400 for laptops and technologically a slower and reduced 8400M GT video card with halved memory connection and only halve as much stream processors. The performance is slightly above the 7400 and therefore it can represent DirectX 9 games fluently with reduced details / resolutions. It is too weak for modern DirectX 10 games (at least for higher details). For people who play occasionally, it may be sufficient.

The particularity of this video card are the "Unified Shader". Pixel- and vertex-shaders do not exist any more but 8 of the so called stream processors do the graphic work.

Compared to the faster GS and GT model, the 8400M G does only accellerate MPEG-2 videos with its PureVideo engine. > PureVideo Comparison

Currently there is no desktop graphics card that can be compared to the 8400M G. The 8400 Pro is much faster and compareable to the 8400M GS card.
