Nvidia Releases GeForce GT 300 OEM Series Bump

When Nvidia announced that its next-generation GF100 parts would be marketed first as GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470, we all noticed that the company skipped the 300s. Now we've noticed what the graphics maker is doing with the 300-level – saving the numbers for refreshed OEM parts.

VR-Zone spotted three new GeForce products on the Nvidia OEM-only section of its GeForce Family page: the GeForce GT 340, GeForce GT 330, and GeForce GT 320.

The GT 340 appears to be a GT 240 but with a GDDR5 bump. The GT 330's roots are a little more fuzzy, as Nvidia lists the part as having somewhere between 96 and 112 CUDA cores, which leaves us guessing that it is either another variant of the GTS 240 or upgraded GT215. The GT 320 presents a pleasant bump from the GT 220 with 72 CUDA cores.

Enthusiasts' eyes will be more interested at the release of the Fermi-based GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470 when they launch on March 26.
