Nvidia rebrands old hardware, launches first 300 series card
After all the negative press surrounding it’s rebranding of the 8800 series into the 9800 series into the GT250, you’d think they’d get the message, but apparently not. Still, this card is so low-end that i doubt anyone will blow a fuse over it.
Don’t get too excited, though, as the first 300-series product is a low-end solution that’s currently available to OEMs only. Dubbed the GeForce 310, the card isn’t based on the upcoming Fermi architecture and is instead a basic GT200-series card with a GPU clocked at 589MHz and 16 stream processors clocked at 1,402MHz.
Look familiar? It should do, as it’s little more than a rebranded GeForce 210. As far as we can tell, there’s no physical change, despite the massive jump in model number.
