Nvidia's first DirectX 10.1 card pictured
Up to now Nvidia kept a tight lip about the new Geforce graphics cards which are based on TSMC's 40 nm architecture - although those cards are DirectX 10.1 compatible. We were told that "those are OEM versions”. PC Games Hardware nevertheless organized a Geforce G210 which now arrived at our office.
According to the Nvidia website it offers the following features - Nvidia did not reveal more detailed information.
• 16 Shader ALUs
• GPU frequency 589 MHz (core) / 1,402 (Shader)
• GPU performance: 4,172 GTex/sec. 44.8 GFLOPS/sec. (MADD)

Until we have finished our benchmarks and can deliver a full review, you can pass the time with the pictures in our gallery. The CPU-Z screenshots have been made with a special version of the tool from Techpowerup.com which delivers improved recognition for the GT218. At this point we would like to thank the author of GPU-Z, w1zzard for his support.
