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
