    NVIDIA today announced the latest addition to its Fermi class of graphics processing units (GPUs), the NVIDIA GeForce GT 430, which was specifically designed to provide the horsepower needed to power today's digital media PCs and provide the high definition video and audio experiences that desktop customers demand.

    The GeForce GT 430 utilizes the Company's latest 40nm GPU, codenamed GF108, which is already designed into a variety of desktop and notebook platforms from the world's leading OEMs, including Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Samsung, Sony and others. For customers looking for a viable desktop upgrade from lowly integrated solutions, the GeForce GT 430 is a major step up, delivering unparalleled experiences in photo and video editing, Blu-ray 3D, as well as the next generation of GPU-accelerated Web browsers and Web content. And, when combined with NVIDIA 3D Vision technology and a compatible display, the GT 430 is also the only GPU in its class that allows consumers to experience their digital content in full stereoscopic 3D.

    Offering up to 1.5x the gaming performance of previous generation products, the GeForce GT 430 also adds support for DirectX 11 (DX11), the industry standard for game development. Most importantly, the GT 430 delivers unmatched out-of-the-box game compatibility and playable frame rates in all of today's top 30 games, when compared to integrated graphics solutions.

    Key features of the new GeForce GT 430 include:
    • Support for HDMI 1.4a, a TV standard for delivering 3D content and advanced multi-channel digital audio
    • Special video engine to accelerate Blu-ray 3D content, delivering optimal 3D visuals at a full 1080p resolution
    • High-definition 24-bit multi-channel audio up to 192KHz, and lossless DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD audio bit streaming
    • Dedicated video processing engine for reduced system power and heat
    • Support for NVIDIA PhysX technology, the industry's most comprehensive, cross-platform physics solution
    Starting today, the GeForce GT 430 is available as an add-in card from the world's leading suppliers, including ASL, ASUS, Colorful, ECS, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, Jetway, KFA2, Leadtek, MSI, Palit, Point of View, PNY, Sparkle, Zotac and others.

    Its not always about the bandwidth. Proccessing power is what matters lol... If my friends HD 5570 40nm, can keep up to my 9800 GT 65nm, then Im sure the GTS 430 would have no probs holding its own aswell. :)

    EDIT

    Any guesses on how much PPD that would do ? heh.. 8-9k ?

    They should over mass produce the GTX 480 so all GTX 480s are cheaper and we won't need cards like these.
    Magikherbs says thanks.

    Agree'd.. They make 1-3 new models then disable what they see fit on the 'budget' ones to meet market demand. :shadedshu
    Our economy sucks mainly because it rewards inefficientcy. (spelling? lol)

    Peace

    they crippled this thing with 4 ROPS and GDDR3 imo, 8 ROPS and GDDR5 and I think it'd be at least 40-50% faster. will make a great budget folder or PhysX card tho

    Would a GT 240 with 8 ROPS and GDDR5 beat this card? Even my GT 220 has twice the ROPs and half the shaders. Seems like it gets beaten by an HD 5570 a majority of the time.

    Wonder how it folds compared to a GT 240.
    Crunching for Team TPU More than 25k PPD

    That's probably because it's not meant for you.

    Makes me want one of these cards. They look so cute :) Also if i look at the chart, 11fps in Crysis with 4xFSAA. That's pretty demanding for such card and getting 11fps out ain't that bad really. Still unplayable but it means it can run some games pretty well. If you're a Left 4 Dead series fan it's a decent card. Or if you like older games from before 2005. I mean i play really old games quite a lot.

    But the 9600 GT performs better i believe, and if you can find that cheaper then a 430, then that's definitely the thing to pick imo.
