    Inno3D are excited to announce the Inno3D GeForce GT 240 graphics card. The GeForce GT 240 opens up visually tantalising possibilities by providing the graphics processing power to manipulate the dullest of photos or home videos and transform them into your very own masterful creations. It also allows the viewing of flawless Adobe Flash 10.1 video in full screen HD and plays the latest games with fast frame rates and NVIDIA PhysX effects. Energise your multimedia with GeForce GT 240 graphics and equip your PC for the digital world.

    The sheer power of the new Inno3D GeForce GT 240 is illustrated in the Vantage Performance chart above, towering over the performance of the 9600GT with great significance. This surely is a reflection of Nvidia’s technological advancement from 9600GT to GT 240 whilst boasting an array of additional features raising the bar of the performance card.

    so they basically brought back the 8800gs and called it a GT 240... this might be a nice upgrade for my sisters computer, if the price is right.

    Well the gddr3 ones are probably going to be a bit crippled on that 128bit bus, compared to a 8800gs

    so they brought back the 8800GS, crippled it, and started selling it again?

    But it has Dx10.1! Now you can be crippled and 1 generation behind for two easy payments of 49.99!

    the funny thing is the BS scores, now, I know the 8800GS trades blows with the 9600GT on vantage but your telling me, . . . . . that this card with less rops than the GS . . . . . and the same amount of shaders with lower clocks outperforms it.

    its not a renamed 8800 or 9800 card . . but it makes a good card for media centers.

    looking forward to it - this could be a great, power efficient low end gaming card, or it could be an overpriced, recycled piece of crap

    I really... really hope this card doesn't translates the reality of the green gpu team....
    Because, if this is the best they can show for some time in this price range... well... they are in a true big dip s**t..... :banghead:

    I guess I'll start selling my HD 4850 and get one of these to help the green team or else we will only have ATI soon....

    Dang you're right didn't see that at all! Well the MSI one is with ddr5 and it's rated at 900MHz single channel...I just saw MSI and XFX and automatically went for the XFX one without even looking...damn marketing :D

    These statements are about as true as someone saying ATi brought back the HD3850, crippled it, and called it the HD4670...

    It is a new card, just because it has some similar specs to an old card doesn't mean it has any relation to the old card.

    And so has ATi, your point? It isn't exactly uncommon for either side to use cards from the previous generation to fill lower spots in the next, both have done it.

    But this is clearly not the case. How many 8800GS's, or any G92 based card for that matter, have you seen with GDDR5 support?

    my point is that we wont know til we get a decent review, and w1zz has one on the way.

    who cares if its DDR5, if its slower than an 8800GT, for example?

    i for one am dissapointed that the card comes with variations in ram, why have the same GPU name on GDDR3 and GDDR5? the damn boxes wont specify when you look retail, and will definately mislead consumers

    We already know, it isn't a 8800GS, GDDR5 support and DX10.1 means a totally new GPU.

    Performance has nothing to do with your comments up until now. The fact is this is a new GPU. It might be slower than an 8800GT, but new GPUs don't have to be faster than previous cards, not every new card has to be a high end one. Not everyone is in the market for a high end GPU.

    Who cares if it has a variation in RAM, it leaves more options for the manufacturers and the consumer. I would bet that GDDR5 was advertised all over the packaging to catch the consumers eye. Most packaging does state how much ram, and usually what kind. The good manufacturers put it in huge letters on the front of the box, look at eVGA's packaging for an example. It wouldn't be the first time cards have been offered with different types of RAM under the same name, and it won't be the last. Lower end cards are a mess with differnt specs under the same name, varying memory types and memory bus widths is common all under the same model name. Hell, the HD4670 was available with GDDR4, GDDR3, and GDDR2...

    where are you pulling DX10.1 from? its not mentioned at all.

    most packaging i've seen doesnt state what ram type - and i bet we'll have users come on here asking "why is my GTS 240 so slow, all these reviews say it should be faster!"
    (just like we have whenever any card has had multiple bus widths/ram types in the past, like the 8500GT and the 9600PRO i think it was)

    @newtekie1: The 4670 came with gddr3/4 and there is no real difference in performance. Only the 4650 came with ddr2 support. I expect to see big differences between the gddr5 and 3 versions of the GT240.
    @mussels: It's been stated earlier the GT 240 will have Dx 10.1 support plus you can see it on newegg

    right, wasnt looking at the egg. then again, i've seen 9800GT's listed with 10.1 support on the egg in the past.

    we will know all once w1zzy goes public with his review!
