MSI Intros Two New GeForce GT 440 Graphics Cards

MSI kicked off its GeForce GT 440 offer with two models, the low-profile N440GT-MD1GD3/LP, and the base-model N440GT-MD512D5. The former uses 1 GB of GDDR3 memory, and the latter uses 512 MB faster GDDR5. The low-profile card uses a miniaturized version of MSI's Twin Frozr II heatsink, which uses two 40 mm fans. The N440GT-MD512D5 uses a full-height PCB and a standard-looking GPU-heatsink with MSI's own cooler shroud design. The GPU features 96 CUDA cores, and a 128-bit wide GDDR3/GDDR5 memory interface. The GPU is clocked at 810 MHz, 1620 MHz CUDA cores, and 900 MHz memory. Display outputs include one each of DVI, HDMI, and VGA. Expect sub $100 price points.

sounds like an over clocked 240, about as much use probably because at the graphics settings that will run DX11 wont make a difference

Great PhsyX cards. I'm thinking of getting the GDDR5 version myself to replace my aging 8400GS backup card.

When a card (Geforce GT 440) will cost 100$ -> good information, :toast:
but when not... (>100$) -> bad... :banghead:


It makes me want to laugh when I see a low profile card with Twin Frozer II :)

On newegg I'm seeing gt 440s for $80, same as the 5670. Sadly this seems ill priced based on tpu's review. $70 would be more performance appropriate.

not sure why people buy a whole new nvidia card to use as physx, when you can just use your normal nvidia card as physx., also physx is stupid.

its semi catching on and its not stupid to use one when the other cards in the PC are ati based




that baby twin frozer would be a good little HTPC card

Even if you have a ATI card , you still can enable physx without a nvidia card. I play Mafia 2 with a ati card and had physx at high settings, i mean you aren't really missing anything amazing, just some extra effects here and there. I never understood the hype IMO, just like dx10 or dx11.

You can enable it in some games not all without the nv card

I like that they are both 1 slot solutions, but how do these compare the GT 430 ?
