40nm DirectX 10.1

Nvidia plans to launch a “new” generation of what´s exclusively been a OEM product and this new card will get a Geforce GT220 brand name.

The launch date is October 12th, which is just one day before the launch of Radeon HD 5770 and 5750, both DirectX 11 cards that might dominate this market segment.

Geforce GT220 works from 615MHz all the way to 700MHz depending on the configuration, while most of the cards use 1GB of 790MHz clocked 128-bit DDR3 memory. This is a single slot card with shader clock at 1335MHz.

The cards we've found listed should be selling from €57 to €72 which sounds quite affordable. Nvidia's DirectX 11 Fermi-based entry level won't arrive until first half of 2010.

It'd be great to have a single-slot version of HD 5750. :)

Wouldn't that be competitive to HD 4870? :)

By the way, how long do I have to wait until AMD releases a GPU with a 27mm manufacturing tech? ;) Minimal power consumption is king for me (and no, laptop is not a solution)! :)

HTPC: AMD Athlon X2 4050e CPU with 780G ATX motherboard running Windows 8 DP (4GB) and Ubuntu; Server: AMD AII X2 240e CPU with 880G-based ATX motherboard running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS (8GB)
