    If you care (or most likely don't care) about these budget graphics cards, here they are:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...ark=False&ActiveSearchResult=True&Order=PRICE

    These are NVIDIA's newest parts, both the only 40nm/Dx10.1 cards currently available from the green camp. :cool:

    On a more important note, NVIDIA's 3rd OEM GPU has just appeared on their website: the GTS240. Looks like the 40nm/DX10.1 successor to the 9800GT.

    Wikipedia also shows the GT240 (96 shaders), and possible GDDR5 usage!

    At least NVIDIA is (re)naming them in a more understandable way: G = super low end, GT = low end, GTS = mid-range, GTX = humongous. :toast:
     
    MKmods says thanks.

    I was wondering that too. Maybe it is regular DDR3 vs. GDDR3. :confused:

    I don know what it is either, probably a typo but the GT240 might just only be a rumor because theres already a GTS240 and there could be mixups between the GT240 and GTS240

    GTS240

    basically a 9800GT with a new pcb and heatsink

    now if the GT240 was the GT230, I could get that

    I realized that, on the Wikipedia page that I referenced, the GTS 240 was listed as 55nm, but with DX10.1. I wonder how they could do 10.1 on a G92b, unless it's a typo? :confused:

    No they don't, Win7 Aero works just fine on DX9 GPUs...

    The only issue that I have with your sources is that they are from late 2008 to March 2009. It's mid-October now, but you never know if MS scrapped the idea. Many things can change from Beta-->RC-->RTM. I will deem it plausible for there to be DX10.1 Aero, but I won't take it as fact yet.

    well, if its true then I would really like a GTS240 bios dump then,:wtf:

    Aero does work on DX9 cards in 7, I even had it enabled with my old X1650Pro when I was RMA'ing my card in beta, 7 supports DX9,10,10.1 and 11 via compute shaders, but my old 9600 won't, its a game of chance really
