Pretty sure. It says: "NVIDIA GPU GeForce GT 240 (GT215)".

I understand the documentation doesn't mention it, thus I had it sitting for a few days until I finally decided to give it a try. The part is ASUS ENGT240 with 1GB DDR3. (does your card have GDDR?)

I can make an educated guess the relevant detection/setup code is already in, it just doesn't cover the corner cases and some hardware features, so they won't 'officially' support it now. I am confident they'll release a working driver in a few days.
