The NVS 300 replaces the NVS 295 and it should offer better performance-per-watt and a 25 percent reduction in overall power consumption. It’s a low profile card with passive cooling, so it’s silent, which is a fact much appreciated by business users.
The big news is 8-monitor support, which is quite impressive from such an affordable card. Nvidia claims the card will improve user productivity, but since it is aimed at securities traders and bankers, we believe the additional monitors will merely help them screw up the economy a bit faster and lose more of our money in the process.
The MSRP stands at $149 and the card will be available in PCIe x16 and x1 flavours.
