The guys over at VR-Zone have snagged some details about Nvidia's upcoming G98 graphics processor, which is expected to be the company's next budget part. The site reports that the G98 will replace the existing G86 graphics processor found in GeForce 8400 GS graphics cards. G98-based cards will support PCI Express 2.0 connectivity and come outfitted with 256MB of GDDR2 memory clocked at 800MHz. As with the G86, that memory will run on a 64-bit memory bus.
VR-Zone also has word that cards powered by the G98 will be priced at just $59. They'll reportedly compete with AMD's upcoming RV610- and RV620-based cards and offer performance somewhere between that of current Nvidia GeForce 8400- and GeForce 8600-series offerings.
