    EVGA released the first consumer-channel graphics card based on NVIDIA's GeForce GT 545 graphics processor. The GT 545 has been an OEM-only SKU. Based on the 40 nm GF116 silicon, the GT 545 has 144 of the chip's 192 CUDA cores enabled, the same 192-bit wide memory interface, but making use of DDR3 memory instead of GDDR5 on the GeForce GTX 550 Ti. Clock speeds set at 720 MHz core, 1440 MHz CUDA cores, and 900 MHz (1800 MHz effective) memory, churning out memory bandwidth of 43 GB/s. There is 1.5 GB of memory.

    EVGA's implementation resembles NVIDIA's reference design. It uses a short full-height PCB, and a single-slot cooler. Display outputs include one each of HDMI 1.4a, D-Sub, and DVI. It can pair with another card of its kind in 2-way NVIDIA SLI. Backed by 10 year warranty (if purchased this month), the EVGA GeForce GT 545 1.5 GB is priced at US $150.

    Reminds me of the 8800GS/9600GSO, and, given DDR3 memory, will probably perform similarly.

    similar in segment but not in performance.



    It's good to see Green Camp split card in this segment for someone who need more performance than GT440 but don't want to pay at GTS450 price.

    And look like DirectX11 has a long life.

    I wouldn't be so sure. The GTS450, with 50% more shaders and similar bandwidth to the 9800GTX+ is not significantly faster in most games. This new GT545 has 50% more shaders and similar bandwidth to an 8800GS.

    Fermi shaders count for less than G80/92/200 shaders.

    GTX 460 768MB - 150$
    GT 545 1.5GB - 150$

    I wonder how many people are going to buy it.

    This has 192 SPs. It's comparable to the GTS 450. It's twice as good as the GTX 460.

    um the article states that it has only 144 active and as others said these shaders are weaker than the g9x ones, so expect performance similar to 9800gt/250gts but with dx11 slapped on to it.

    $150 is a bit much but the card looks like it will handle hd video like a champ without breaking a sweat. i bet in a couple of months that price drops down to $125.

    Someone should tell them that the heatsink has fallen halfway off... :roll:

    EDIT: Just think we were getting GTX260's for 150 not to long ago...

    Why put a vga (D-Sub) connection on the card? It's a waste... This is clearly for htpc's. and DDR3 on a $150 card? This should be a $100 card at most.. I do like the ten year warranty, but hell ten years why not say limited lifetime to look better on paper?

    If it was for 512 gddr5 it would be very nice and the price would be lower :)
    I think this card is price so high only because it is made for high resolution and not for games
