If this is accurate then the major diff between the 9700 and the 9500 is that the 9500 only supports 64 megs of ram and the memory interface will be 128-bit as opposed to 256-bit. Interesting to see how the performance of this card is impacted. @ the reported price point of $219 it better whoop the ti4200 and 4400's butt. Hell for that price it better be pretty darn close to the 4600 (since you can get one @ pricewatch for $225). *crosses fingers*
