London, April 17th 2007: Commodore Gaming is proud to announce the NVIDIA® GeForce® 8500 and NVIDIA GeForce 8600 graphics processing units (GPU) to be standardized on in the Commodore g (NVIDIA® GeForce® 8500GT), and Commodore gs (2 x NVIDIA® GeForce® 8600GTS). Commodore will use these cards as they will be the first to bring Microsoft's DirectX®10 technology to the midrange.

Sean Charles, Marketing Manager at Commodore Gaming, is quoted saying, "It is always the goal of Commodore Gaming to offer the industry's best products, value for money, and innovation, and the benchmark results of these cards are truly impressive. Using one or two mid range GeForce 8 GPU instead of a high end GeForce 7 GPU means less heat and, of course, is DirectX® 10 compatible"

Not only will consumers enjoy a fantastic gaming experience, they can also turn their Gaming PC into a great value HD home cinema thanks to NVIDIA® PureVideo HD technology that delivers outstanding video performance.
