NVIDIA GT218 Specifications Gain Clarity

Coming March, NVIDIA is expected to roll-out its first GPU built on the newer 40nm silicon fabrication process: the GT218. This GPU will spearhead the company's next generation of entry-level graphics cards. It will succeed the G98 GPU in the process. VR-Zone has access to some more details about this GPU apart from what we know (covered here).

The GT218 will go into making four SKUs, based on two primary NVIDIA reference PCB designs. VR-Zone accessed the schematics of the P692 PCB design codenamed D10M1-30, that reveal a half-height, SFF-friendly PCB that holds the GT218. The clock-speeds of the GPU are 550 MHz (core), 1,375 MHz (shader) and 800/1600 DDR MHz (memory). The GPU makes use of a 64-bit wide GDDR3 memory bus. The GPU supports output standards that include DVI, D-Sub and DisplayPort. The older report suggested this GPU to carry 32 stream processors, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs, with a suggested TDP of around 22W. NVIDIA is looking to unveil this new GPU at the upcoming CeBIT even in March, followed by product launches in April.

They usually test new fabrication processes on mid-range GPU's. This appears to be low-end. Actually, in this day and age a 64-bit memory bus means very low-end.

This is a low end graphics card that seems to have really good power consuption and will more then take care of the basic uses. Love the power consumption. If only my 4870x2's in crossfire could compare to that power rating.

I was just about to do that.

Yes, 450w vs 22w is quite hysterical. No offense, of course.

Bleah , low end cards rumors/news for hardcore gamers is poison , i think i can't breathe :).
VR-ZONE should kill themselves for releasing such a news , damn Nvidia kiss assers.
A 40 nm GTX280 would be nice , imagine the overclock , mmmmm.

hmm i wonder, is this going to be way better than the 9 series or is this going to be a rebag of the 280/290 series?

i need a card that eat 1000w and give me 200 fps in crysis warhead .... not a low power consumption card which couldn't handle 2years ago games.
