Nvidia Geforce GT 240 to release on November 17th
Next up from Nvidia is the GT 240, based on the GT215. This is a 40nm, DX10.1, 96 SP product. We have discussed the GT 240 before, two weeks ago. While Expreview's benchmarks are not available any longer, we can expect the the GDDR5 version GT 240 to perform around 9600 GT levels, maybe a bit faster with driver improvements.

However, the underwhelming GT 220 is selling at $69 for the DDR2 version and $79 for the DDR3 version, and both already losing out on all counts to the $69 HD 4670, and even Nvidia's older 9600 GT/GSO cards. Now, we have the HD 4770 dropping in price, with bargain HD 4770s already available for ~$85. We are not sure if there is any room for this card on today's market. Much like the recent GT 220 release, it seems a case of too little, too late, too expensive.
