    NVIDIA has the launch of its GeForce GT 220 graphics processor lined up for next week. Aimed to be a sub-$100 lower-mainstream offering, the GPU is one of NVIDIA's first GPUs to be built on the 40 nm manufacturing technology, which [finally] include DirectX 10.1 support. MSI already has a factory-overclocked graphics card based on the GPU, the MSI N220GT-MD1G-OC. Powered by the GeForce GT 220, it packs 48 shader processors, 1 GB of GDDR3 memory across a 128-bit wide interface, and connectivity that includes DVI-D, D-Sub, and HDMI. While the overclocked speeds isn't known as yet, expect it to be over GeForce GT 220's reference speeds of around 615/1335/1580 MHz (core/shader/memory). The card draws all its power from the PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slot, and uses a simple heatsink with spirally-projecting aluminum fins and a fan, to cool the GPU, and the memory surrounding it. It is expected to be priced under 80 EUR.

    :laugh:Overpriced comes to mind a 40nm g94 with 46 shaders and 10.1Dx(That used to suck and be useless like Dx11 right now;)) would be nice for Physix if under 50$, for 80 EUR, Id get a 4830 or 4850 or a 9600GT Low Power if a weak PSU was an issue. taking into account I can get a GDDR3 4650 for under 50$ and a 4670 for 60$(both will probably smack this card) it Doesn't make any sense at that price point...

    Awesome! 1GB of RAM is exactly what this card needed.

    Did they release this not realising that their older products and AMD's offerings would kill sales for this?

    This is supposed to be an OEM product. It's not NVIDIA's fault that MSI, Gigabyte, and other manufacturer's are releasing OEM products like retail. :p
