GeForce GT 220 And 210: DirectX 10.1 And 40nm Under $80

Game Benchmarks: Far Cry 2

Far Cry 2 is showing a closer race between the factory-overclocked GeForce GT 220 and the reference Radeon HD 4670. The factory-overclocked GeForce 9600 GSO from Gigabyte once again takes top honors. And once again, the Radeon HD 4550 takes a pyrrhic victory over the new GeForce 210, with neither card able to muster playable frame rates.

    Too late for nVidia. They should release these cards 1 year ago...

    This is a nice article that points out nVidia's step into the development of 40nm chips for the market even though they didn't really cause any changes in the sub-$100 video card market. They just seemed to make it even more crowded. I can't wait for the GT300 reviews though. :)

    They have a lot of loyal folks looking to save money these days, so they'll move some 220's. So fans will appreciate the cards.

    hmmm i can see amd stomping this thing shortly with a DX11 part - kalliman is right, this is way too late in the market

    as for the gt300 - also bad news if the info i have heard is correct - 6 months away is not good for nvidia

They are nothing more then media cards meant for random dell's/gateway random desktops for people who don't really know what's in their computers.
