  1. Moving forward with the transition to 40nm, Nvidia has officially taken its GT200 architecture to the mainstream today with the retail launch of the GeForce G210 and GeForce GT220 graphics cards. Both products carry prices well below the $100 mark, and are the company's first desktop solutions to offer support for DirectX 10.1 as well as Shader Model 4.1.

    Fixed, thank you.
  4. "48 processor cores" Nvidia is terming that as "Cuda Cores" (more confusing marketing). I can't find a definite answer, but I don’t believe this is the same thing termed by the old "Shader Processors"?
    Has Nvidia devised this to again confuse their customers?

    This card appears to be nothing more than a die-shrink od the 9500GT except more core clock, with slightly shader / memory clocks, and included a increase in the power requirement. While still no HD audio over HDMI … Nothings Changed!

    That's quite a "meh" inspiring release there Nvidia. What happened to the competitive spirit? Its like slapping a new label on dog food and calling it improved. So they caught up to cards AMD sold a year ago with the HD 4000-series. Yeay!?

    Now someone go and build me a card that can score 3 digits in Crysis in high detail!
