    Gigabyte's newest entry-level graphics accelerator is based on one of NVIDIA's first GPUs built on the 40 nm fab-process. The Gigabyte GeForce GT 220 OC (GV-N220OC-1G) is based on the new GT216-300 GPU from NVIDIA that features 48 shader processors, support for DirectX 10.1, and a 128-bit wide GDDR3 memory interface accommodating 1 GB of memory. The GPU is clocked at 720 MHz, with its shader domain at 1567 MHz, and memory at 800 MHz (1600 MHz DDR). With connectivity options that include DVI-D, D-Sub, and HDMI with a gold-plated connector (merely aesthetic, as digital connections don't benefit), the card sports a cooler design similar to its custom-design Radeon HD 4770 1 GB accelerator. The accelerator starts shipping soon at an unknown yet affordable price.

    I wonder how well this does on 48sps. If it has the efficiency of a GTX 260 and the raw power of a 9600GT (64sps which can nearly match a 8800GT's 112sp core), then it'd probably be a good deal.

    Looks and sounds like a 9600GSO with a die shrink.

    WTF, where "GT 300" preview, they said they would steal the thunder from AMD and now the best they can do is launch this die shrink "9600 GSO" :laugh:

    and they say DX 10.1 was useless, give me a break, :wtf:

    up's maybe these is "the card" that they say will "out perform" cypress,

    hmm better start to see the benches :rockout:

    This is probably the remaining 98% of the GTX300 wafers.:roll:

    Wow, in THIS day, .... how come not another... nVidia should have kept at least 2-3 days more their pants on, so they should not associate themselves with 5800 series with this lousy release :/

    It shouldn't. So far the GT 220 has been an OEM videocard and it does not require any PCIe connectors.

    It's a GIGABYTE release, not a nVidia release. And it has GBT own design.

    Doesn't look all that impressive to me, I would rather have a 9600GSO 96sp or a 9800GT.

    This is GT216 not GT300, I think you should wait a bit.

    nV are the king of rebadging and they have to do something with the defective dies- after all the those defective wafers are expensive:laugh:

    Just this already constitutes a new core.

    Die shrink from 55nm to 40nm? Big.
    DX10.1 support? Big. (according to ATi)

    Sure, it's not that innovative but it does give the HD45xx series and lesser some needed competition.

    If there was a low profile version of this card, it would be perfect.
