Zotac Launches GT 630 Zone Edition, GT 640 GDDR5 GPUs

By - Source: 4Gamer | B 9 comments

4Gamer.net has reported that the budget oriented Zotac GT 630 Zone edition and Zotac GT 640 GPUs will feature Nvidia’s GK208-301 “Kepler” core.

Japanese site 4Gamer.net has reviewed Zotac’s upcoming GT 630 Zone Edition and GT 640 GDDR5 GPUs and revealed that they will not be powered by Nvidia’s GK108 or GK107 “Fermi” core, but instead will utilize the GK208 “Kepler” core.

The GT 630 Zone Edition has a length of 148 mm and like other Zone Edition GPUs, features a fanless, passive cooler that is just 10 mm shy of meeting the low profile specification. Though the GT 640 GDDR5 also measures 148 mm in length, it includes a 2 slot design with a single 50 mm cooling fan. With regards to outputs, both graphics cards feature a single Dual-Link DVI-D port, one HDMI connector and analog RGB via a 15-pin D-Sub port.

    AMD obviously has better offerings in this price range. As far as both performance for the price and energy consumption.

    why would you buy a GT 640 for 136$ when GeForce GTX 650 2GB Superclocked is only 140$ and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti SSC 2GB is only 150$ (they had discounts just recently...) and if you can pay a bit more get GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST Superclocked for 170$...it's a very nice card for that price and it's mid range...it will do the job on medium for most games with atleast 30FPS...

    This is retarded. My OEM GT 640 GDDR5, the original one, which was a GTX 650 with lower clocks, trashes this new GT 640 DDR5. Half the bandwidth?? Are you kidding me? Who would buy this over a GTX 650? I just gained a whole lot of gratitude for my GT 640 GDDR5 and how much better it is compared to this.
