Today NVIDIA launches their first GDDR5 graphics card. The new GeForce GT 240 is based on NVIDIA's brand-new 40 nm G215 graphics processor and features 96 shaders. Palit has built an overclocked "Sonic" Edition card that comes with high clock speeds out of the box and features a sensible temperature based fan control mechanism.

So these new GT 240s have better 128-bit GDDR5 modules than ATI's HD 5700 series? Or are NVIDIA's and ATI's memory reading different? (i.e. like shader count)

no . . . . this card uses K4G10325FE-HC05 which is specified to run at 4000mhz effectively, the 57XX cards mainly use H5GQ1H24AFR-T2C which is specified to run at 5000mhz effectively its just that its worded differently on nvidia's specs vs ati's

GT240=1000mhz x 4 =4000mhz
HD57XX=1250mhz x 4 = 5000mhz

the GT240's use slower memory.

even taking into account overclocking the GT240's memory seems to top out at 4400mhz, the HD57XX memory hits 6000 mhz before topping out.

Well it hits 1400 x 4=5600MHz most commonly...
Anyway thsi card with an aftermarket cooler if available and with the 4850 vmod(uP6201 is very easy to mod) u ll make WONDERS!!!
And the vMEM MOD looks even easier!!!
