Apparently Nvidia is preparing to launch a series of GeForce 8600 cards in the middle of the second quarter 2007 to help satisfy the increasing demand for DirectX 10 supporting graphics cards for Windows Vista. The GeForce 8600 series will be priced to target mainstream markets.

According to the release plan several versions are currently being prepared, the sources claim. The GeForce 8600 GT with 512MB memory will be priced between US$219 and US$229, while a 256MB version will be available at US$199. Additionally, targeting an even lower price point will be the GeForce 8600GS at between US$159 and US$165.

DirectX 10 graphics cards will be the main focus for both Nvidia and AMD (who is now a player in the graphics card market after the acquisition of ATI) at the upcoming CeBIT trade show to be held from March 15 to 21, 2007, according to industry sources. The above mentioned cards from Nvidia are expected to be shown alongside the company's already released GeForce 8800 series, while AMD is predicted to use the event to debut its own Direct X 10 cards which will include the high-end R600 model along with the R630 and R610 aimed at mainstream at low-end markets.

My Sony phone has a stupidly small card and it's annoying cause I did wanna use it in my mates PSP a while ago. An adapter pack would be useful for that for sure ;)
