This is a nice article that points out nVidia's step into the development of 40nm chips for the market even though they didn't really cause any changes in the sub-$100 video card market. They just seemed to make it even more crowded. I can't wait for the GT300 reviews though. :)
 
hmmm i can see amd stomping this thing shortly with a DX11 part - kalliman is right, this is way too late in the market

as for the gt300 - also bad news if the info i have heard is correct - 6 months away is not good for nvidia

The 210 220 i'm pretty sure are OEM parts this is more like a proof/test of what nvidia can do, then a market move. They are nothing more then media cards meant for random dell's/gateway random desktops for people who don't really know what's in their computers.

This is the first time Tom's has run HAWX with DX10.1 support enabled. Those countless reviews with HD4xxx this support was not used. Does this imply something obvious?

They're retail now.

Check Newegg, they can be purchased already. Today is the official launch of the retail cards, although they've been available for a few days now.

I forgot to add that article writer seems not to have any idea what DX10.1 is all about when running HAWX without AA. Let me clarify: DX10.1 is about improving AA performance.

I don't see the point of these cards, 9500GT have similar power and performance and costs less. 9600GT green version would have similar power output but twice the performance of GT220 so again it's getting pwned.

mmm, you have to wonder why they released these cards now, just before Windows 7 launch. I think its because they want to give mew buyers the latest technology at a very affordable price (unlike the 58xx which costs a fair amount).

So new buyers will opt for this card, not thinking of performance gains, rather thinking they have the newest with 10.1 drivers which works o so sweet with W7 (so were told).

Me, atleast we know what Nvidia is coming up with, and i`m sure it will give ATI a run for there money, and this is coming from a ATI fan!

I can't help but notice that these cards are not ddr5 memory which leads me that it is very plasable that the GT300 will be ddr3

Okay.... ALL the GeForce cards are overclocked retail models.

How hard is it to slow them down to STOCK performance, especially the other cards for comparison. The GT220/210 are fine as they come out of the box... but the other cards should be AT STOCK speeds.

This is why your Video Charts is a complete utter mess. 2-4 versions of the same card which may have a difference of 2-3fps.
