    ZOTAC International, an award-winning manufacturer of graphics cards and motherboards, today expands its product lineup with two new entry-level graphics cards – the new ZOTAC GeForce 9400GT Synergy Edition and GeForce 9400GT DDR2 1GB. Powered by a high-speed GeForce 9400GT graphics processor, the new ZOTAC GeForce 9400GT Synergy Edition and GeForce 9400GT DDR2 1GB deliver DirectX 10, OpenGL 2.1 and NVIDIA CUDA processing power to entry-level users. The new ZOTAC GeForce 9400GT Synergy Edition features a low-profile form factor, but offers performance similar to standard height ZOTAC GeForce 9400GT DDR2 graphics cards. The low profile form factor is ideal for small form factor systems with height limitations that prevent the installation of standard sized graphics cards. The ZOTAC GeForce 9400GT Synergy Edition ships as a standard height graphics card, however, two low-profile brackets are bundled to convert the card for use in low-profile systems.

    The new ZOTAC GeForce 9400GT DDR2 1GB pairs the GeForce 9400GT graphics processor with 1GB of DDR2 video memory for high-performance in the latest DirectX 10, OpenGL 2.1 and CUDA games and applications.

    “ZOTAC makes a product for all markets and segments, with the addition of the new GeForce 9400GT Synergy Edition and GeForce 9400GT DDR2 1GB, we now have a low-profile graphics card for small form factor users that want to upgrade to the latest GeForce 9 graphics architecture and a entry-level graphics card with 1GB of video memory” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International.

    NVIDIA CUDA and PhysX technologies enable the ZOTAC GeForce 9400GT Synergy Edition and GeForce 9400GT DDR2 1GB to have enhanced functions. The ZOTAC GeForce 9400GT Synergy Edition and GeForce 9400GT DDR2 1GB are able to accelerate video processing and image editing tasks with CUDA technology, while PhysX technology enables the cards to calculate realistic physics in real-time for unprecedented environmental realism, interaction and visual effects in PhysX enabled games.

    “CUDA and PhysX technologies are the future of computing. Our ZOTAC GeForce 9400GT Synergy Edition and GeForce 9400GT DDR2 1GB are cost effective solutions for users that want to take advantage of CUDA and PhysX technologies,” Mr. Berger added.

    NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology enhances the new ZOTAC graphics cards with high-definition video playback capabilities for playback of Blu-ray videos with very little CPU utilization, freeing up the system processor for other tasks. PureVideo HD technology enhances standard definition content to near-high-definition levels of video quality, allowing users to experience existing standard definition content like never before.

    The ZOTAC GeForce 9400GT Synergy Edition and GeForce 9400GT DDR2 1GB come with a long-life ZOTAC Extended Warranty, with user registration. With the ZOTAC Extended Warranty, ZOTAC is confident its graphics cards will be reliable in long-term use.

    It’s time to play with the ZOTAC GeForce 9400GT Synergy Edition and GeForce 9400GT DDR2 1GB!

    I don't see the synergy in the Synergy.

    However, I find it interesting that the 1 GB 9400 has a 128 bit bus; double the RAM, double the bandwidth?

    Those cards look great, but its the same card like the rest of the 9 series cards. They could of up the core and memory clock and add GDDR3 to make it different, but i really don't know why the bother to release them. But then again, i think its nice that they did, so people can choose from a wide range of 9 series cards.

    So hey, i guess its cool. But next time make a OC version.

    It already has such low bandwidth it should be PCI-Express x1 so it could function as a secondary card aswell. Its not like the card really needs pci-Express x16.

    It could be made into PCI or AGP so that u2konline could use it! :laugh:

    I don't think his computer has AGP. Or does it? :confused:
