A couple of days ago, NVIDIA posted a twitter announcement that stated that Monday (today, that is) would see the company holding a “major announcement.” Now that Monday is finally upon us, the GPU maker has definitely made an announcement, although it is (hopefully) just a prelude to the actual major one.
NVIDIA has unwrapped a number of GeForce GT graphics adapters, namely the GT 340, GT 330 and GT 320. These models are not exactly new products, as they are redesigned versions of devices that already exist. That or they are new models based on an existing 40nm GT21x graphics processing unit.
One of the so-called new models is known as the GeForce GT 320. This adapter boasts 72 processing cores, 1GB of VRAM with a 128-bit interface and a memory clock of 780 MHz. The GPU runs at 540 MHz and the shader frequency is set at 1302 MHz. Furthermore, the device comes equipped with D-Sub, DVI and HDMI outputs.
The second in the line is the GeForce GT 340 graphics card, which is actually a renamed GT 240. This adapter has 512MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1700 MHz and a memory interface of 128 bits. In addition, the card has the GPU designed with a clock frequency of 550 MHz and a shader clock of 1340 MHz. Furthermore, the device comes with 96 processing cores, as well as HDMI, DVI and D-Sub outputs.
The third card introduced by the company is the GeForce GT 330. This model comes in multiple versions, each differentiated from the others through its number of processing cores, its memory interface, its amount of VRAM and clock speeds. The GT 330 has either 1GB or 2GB of VRAM and an interface of 128 bits, 192 bits or 256 bits. The models can also have either 96 or 112 cores, along with a GPU frequency of 500-550MHz, a memory clock of 500-800MHz and the shader running at 1250-1340MHz.
The cards are exclusively aimed at OEMs.
