NVIDIA recently released their first two 40 nanometer GPUs: the GT216 and GT218. While the GT216 is used on the more powerful GeForce GT 220, the GT218 graphics processor is used for the GeForce 210, the product name is not GeForce G 210, the "G" in G 210 stands for GeForce.
NVIDIA's GeForce 210 is positioned as the new lowest-end graphics accelerator from NVIDIA with specs that will barely suffice for any serious gaming. On the remaining features NVIDIA scores well however. The cards support full Windows Aero acceleration, full HD video decode in the GPU, come with native HDMI output, and are DirectX 10.1 compliant. NVIDIA's favourite technologies CUDA and PhysX are available as well. Only DirectX 11 is missing to complete the list of features, but for the GeForce 210's performance class and at this date DirectX 11 support does not matter much.
Inno3D has taken NVIDIA's reference PCB design and added their own cooler.
