    NVIDIA partner Albatron released a GeForce 210 based graphics card that uses the PCI-Express x1 interface. This low-profile card is passively cooled, and draws all its power from the slot. Its GeForce 210 (codenamed GT218) GPU is DirectX 10.1 compliant, has 16 unified shaders, and a 64-bit wide memory interface. It is built on the 40 nm process. The card has 512 MB of DDR2 memory. Its clock speeds are set at 589/1402/500 MHz (core/shader/memory). Connectivity includes one each of DVI-D, HDMI, and D-Sub. Albatron hasn't announced its price yet.

    OEM to the max.



    I still, STILL, really hate 1x cards that are as long as a 16x slot >.< they need to work on shorter cards.

    Would make a good PhysX card, but I bet it will be far too overprices, and hard to find.

    Check the bta post above this one. It should give Nvidia a good idea what a graphics card should be like.

    You're right, it only has 16, for some reason I was thinking GT220 specs(48) when I read the article. PhysX requires 32 shaders.
