GeForce GTS 240: OEM Posted on 28/07/2009 at 12:57 by Marc
NVIDIA has unveiled a new OEM product called GeForce GTS 240. Already announced and then unannounced last year, this ‘brand new” product is nothing other than a 9800 GT (which was already a renamed 8800 GT) with a new label and slightly higher clocks. It is based on the G92b, engraved at 55 nm and with 1024 MB of GDDR3 on a 256 bit memory bus. Clocks are a bit higher than those on the 9800 GT with the core at 675 MHz, the shaders at 1620 MHz and the memory at 1100 MHz, against 600/1500/900 previously.
The card will be cooled by a single slot cooler and only requires a 6-pin PCI Express connector. TDP is 120 watts max and the GTS 240 should first be available through NVIDIA’s OEM partners such as Dell.
