GeForce 210 and GT 220 Reviews

NVIDIA tries to breath life into GT200 again

Introduction

Today NVIDIA is releasing a set of products in a near silent fashion - this isn't a release that tends to get a lot of attention. And even though the idea of NVIDIA finally getting around to selling 40nm GPUs to the enthusiast is exciting, the GeForce 210 and GT 220 are really not targeted to that segment of users. Instead you'll find that NVIDIA's latest offering falls into the sub-$100 pricing and obviously will lack a lot of the performance of the GT200-series that we are used to seeing.

What we are curious to understand is how well the two new GPUs compete against the AMD offerings at similar price points in terms of basic gaming performance and feature sets.

You should ignore the PCPer review of the GT 220, their review card only has DDR2 and performance is crippled by lack of bandwidth. Other sites might have GT 220 cards with DDR2 memory, ignore those reviews also.

Other sites that review GT 220 with GDDR3 memory, the performance is much higher, easily beating the 9500GT and can match the HD4670 in most benchmarks.

I didn't even know there are 2 version of GT 220, some people sure will get mixed up there. Anyway if there are 2 versions why should it be ignored?

Here is Tom's Hardware review. Is that OK?

Here one from HEXUS

EDIT
I just noticed the PC Perspective review is included in the NVNEWS "Latest Headlines". They also forgot to ignore it :)

Took me forever to find that toms review. Guess some of the bigger site prioritized for tomorrow instead.

Looks like hardwarezone did a review too.

EDIT I wish they would put the die sizes as that would help with perspective a bit.

ok so what are these cards exactly? I know nvidia renamed some gf9 cards and released as the gf200 or something bs like that...

besides isnt the 57xx series 100-150 market? & wouldn't it be a better choice?

Only the 5750 512 meg come close $ wise though still 20-30 bucks out but you get a lot more features and performance though.

Wow the price\performance ratio on these is terrible.

What were they thinking? :o

If they were $20 cheaper all around they wouldn't be too bad.

TechPowerUp article about
EVGA Announces GeForce 210 and GT 220 Series Graphics Cards

First I didn't even know there are two GT 220 models, which I thought was one too many when I did find out..
Too my surprise EVGA has five GT 220 models. The price range for the 5 models is $100 to $75.
I'm not a marketing guy but it doesn't make much sence to me to have 5 entry models in such small price range. Why not make just one or two cards and pass the manufacturing and packaging savings to the customer. Who is going to keep all them cards on store shelf?

Interesting point in the specifications:
* Full DX10.1 Support - DirectX 10.1 GPU with full Shader Model 4.1 support delivers unparalleled levels of graphics realism and film quality effects for today's hottest games.

For about one and half year some of the NVDIA shills did argue and preached how useless the DirectX 10.1 is and now of a sudden it's awesome. I don't know anymore who to believe.

By the way GeForce 210 card has wrong link in the article, the right link is in the user comments
