    G1Sn-B1

    G1Sn is the refresh of current G1S with few changes:
    -Penryn Processor
    -GeForce 9500M GS 512MB DDR2
    -Blue-Ray Disk Drive for B1

    Everything else is exactly the same as the G1S. The B1 version pretty much max out of everything with Penryn T9300, 4GB of RAM, 320GB 5400rpm SATA Hard Drive and Blue-Ray Disk Drive/DVDRW.

    Like all other new Asus models there is no Turbo Memory installed unlike the G1S-B1 and G1S-B2.

    Thanks hkman. :)

    9500M GS is their next generation GPU, it's pretty much the same card as 8600M GT except the 9500M is a die shrink version and exclusive to Asus, wish they put a GDDR3 Video RAM but the 9500M GS is still slightly better than 8600M GT. :)

    The 8600GT DDR3 is better. And the CPU isn't much better either, which means that this isn't really an "upgrade". It's a refresh with newer hardware but no increase in performance.

    Actually, there's a decrease in 3D performance.

    If you compare just GPU core only not the video RAM (Asus can put GDDR3 on 9500M GS anytime if they want to) , it looks like the 9500M GS is little bit better than 8600M GT but not too much.

    The Penryn processor is not much different from Merom but the Penryn T9300 has 6MB cache, not really a new processor but it's just a Santa Rosa refresh.
