It looks like the rumors about future 40nm desktop GPUs from NVIDIA were sped up and you can actually find a couple of them on NVIDIA’s website TODAY.  Thanks goes to Tech Report for spotting this.

The two cards listed are the GeForce GT 220 and the GeForce G210 – both of which sound very familiar to those of you that read our coverage of the GeForce 200M mobility launch from NVIDIA last month.  While we are glad to see the new DX10.1 and more efficient shader design reach the desktop space, gamers and enthusiasts shouldn’t be overly excited about this revealing.  These are low-end parts that are not even likely to find their way into retail distribution.

Specifications on the new GPUs look like this:
  • GT 220 – 48 shaders, 615 MHz core clock, 1335 MHz shader clock, 1GB of GDDR3 memory at 790 MHz on a 128-bit memory bus
  • G210 – 16 shaders, 589 MHz core clock, 1402 MHz shader clock, 512MB of DDR2 memory at 500 MHz on a 64-bit memory bus

Other features include support for DirectX 10.1, OpenGL 3.0, and CUDA. The reference GT 220 design includes VGA, HDMI, and DVI ports, while the reference G210 trades the HDMI port for a DisplayPort output. Oh, and both cards have half-height circuit boards, as you’ll see in the gallery below. (Thanks to TR reader SH SOTN for the links.)
