    NVIDIA launched GT440 in February, but it is just GF108 core not OEM's GF106 core.
    That means it is a overclocked GT430, so some GT440 come with GDDR5 memory to increase the distance between GT430 and GT440.


    This time I brings you a ColaMax GT440 512MB GDDR5 below !

    With GDDR5 memory, GT440 is indeed a lot stronger than GT430, but this card is only priced around USD76.
    So,it is naturally became the most cost-effective NVIDIA 128BIT GDDR5 graphics card, but its preformance still could not compare with 5670....
    Fortunately, there are great NVIDIA 3D theatre experience and CUDA support....

    Nice concise review. Good job.
    However there are better options at the same price.

    ColaMax sounds like a product from pepsi or coca-cola
