What a peculiar release. I am used to seeing them release the high end parts and trickle down to OEM trash parts. They must be having problems in delivering performance on the 40nm or they would have certainly released their high profit margin parts first, not the low margin, high volume parts.

I'm not sure if Tom's would be able to get a hold of OEM-only parts but if possible I'd love to see some benchmarks.

well, it's great for these sour economic times. Besides people will have a fresh card, low power (I assume), low noise, and better than Intel's integrated graphics.

I bet these will go straight into Media Centers.

Just a little FYI to people wondering why low-end is first, do you realize how many enthusiasts there are? Not many. The majority (AKA a huge percent) of the market is low-end, OEM cards.

Supports DX 10.1? Thought that was only ATi territory.

The competitor also doesn't rock Crysis at a million eighty P. Look who just leveled the playing field!

I have read elsewhere (can't find it at the moment) that Nvidia was having major problems moving to 40nm. Thats why they are/were considering the AMD spinoff GlobalFoundries for their new chips.

I think the moving to DX10.1 should have been expounded upon a lil more. It wasnt very long ago, nVidia officially declared they werent going to have DX10.1 and that it wasnt really a true update/need. Guess I have to say that in the comments here.
nVidia rarely opens up with their top end cards, as theyve been burned in the past. This is just a test, with little to lose, not having to backtrack on their view of DX10.1 . Now they can make the DX10.1 claim, while still keeping it from the people in the know. Cant really promote DX10.1, and wont have DX11 for awhile, nVidia just cant win, but they set themselves up for this anyways.

Well, it was pretty funny when my friend bought a $1000 computer and it couldn't run Crysis :lol: I just laughed at him for being so spoiled, just like I'd laugh it anyone if they spend $1000 for a gaming machine that came with igp. It's all good... :) except he's missing out on all the games that my $500 computer (gtx260) rocks at :p

My 40nm HD4770 is laughing looking at this weak release xDD.

GT220 - GT210, do they perform a little better than the HD3300 of my 790GX mobo?

Oh nvidia, where are you're now...

10.1 is ati territory? It's more like Nvidia didn't feel it was going to catch on so didn't really put it on their chips. Mostly it's on there as DX11 Nears as a show of we can do it.

No, dont drap ATI into it, theyve supported the full DX10 from the beginning. It was nVidias call as to how they viewd this whole thing. Now, theyre just late to the game.
Plus, Id hope they could make DX10.1

I read that and I'm like 'that's sooooo true... crap."




I just got a gtx260... why did I fall for the physx and cuda hype? Blocks 4/6 sata ports :(

Honestly, (sry double post) the 4850 non-reference with zalcman cooler was $100 and bfg gtx260 OCed was $150, I bought both (stupid me...) and could only return one but had to pay $30 shipping, so I sold it for $100 (lost tax lol) and kept the gtx260... why am I so regretful...? If I only had that 4850 back... I could have all my sata ports again...

well that would basicly be having a 9400gt or 8400gs benchmarked... doubt there is any real gain... besides low power consumption

16 and 48 cores wow this must be low to mainstream stuff here. i would think that it could even come close to the hd3870 sitting in my desk ( not desktop replace that sucka with a hd4890) or it could be a rad new design which would be kool.
