Fermi comes later
Nvidia's next upcoming card unfortunately won't be Fermi. On November 17th, Nvidia plans to officially introduce the Geforce GT 240.
The card is targeting the mainstream market and it supports DirectX 10.1, not DirectX 11. We suspect that it should do well for itself in this market segment. The plan is to replace the aging Geforce 9600GSO / GT cards with this new 40nm refresh.
The card features 96 cores and naturally supports PhysX. On another note, the GDDR3 version will run at 900MHz and this indicates that there might also be room for a version that supports some other memory interface, most likely GDDR5.
The card should made available in the Geforce 9600GSO / GT price range and should make use as a good PhysX solution for the enthusiast crowd.
