    And please ,show me the millions of netbooks sold with nvidia chipsets. What was it? there is only one or two?

    Bulldozer had taped out. That is a FACT. Tapeout now means, it is eactly where it should be according to plan. Evergreen came out exactly like planned.

    Nvidia had planned to put out 212, 214, 216, 218 month ago. Look those up, if you want to.

    Oh and Fermi?

    so, read that. And maybe you might understand a thing.


    Oh, and compare Fermi's planned performance with the 5870 and the 5970 and you might see why nvidia is completly f*cked.
    LMAO, so the "proof" you give is ummm 5 days old. You have NOTHING. AMD however as FACT is waaay off taret of it's original dates.

    Phenom was late, Phenom II was late, Chipsets are late, seriously take off the blinders. Just like when you said there was no problem with AMD's USB so many months ago only to have the issue appear in their own errata.

      The top GPU in the low-end (40nm/dx10.1) GT 2xx series is the GT 240 right? [aka GT215]
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VDPAU#Table_of_NVIDIA_GPUs

      It doesn't surpass the 220 [aka GT216] in-terms of video assistance, only 3d acceleration right?
      Does anyone know where all the exact differences are documented?

      Would the GT 240 be better than the 9600GT for 3d acceleration?
      Does it draw much more & run hotter than the 220 as a result, or only when gaming?

      With these Intel IGP chipsets; does the IGP switch-off entirely if a discrete card's inserted?

      I'm thinking of adding the GT 240 to my media front-end

        GT240 is a tiny bit faster than 9600GT but of course slower than 9800GT. GT220 is about 9500GT speed and G210 is the successor of the 9400GT.

          Ah, my ever trustworthy Kano ;-)

          I don't suppose you could answer my 5 other questions in that post?
          Assuming you know the answers to any of them....

          Much appreciated if you could!?
          2am here, good-night.

            All cards with VP4 have got the same video accelleration:

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VDPAU

            When you use a Gxx intel board without pci-e card then the power consumption is less than the corresponding Pxx board because the pci-e slot is then inactive. When you use a pci-e card then the integrated vga is disabled and it will need the same as a Pxx board.

              You sound quite certain of that, thanks! You know the answer to any of these? ...

                    GT240 looks to be the top one thanks, man, can't see how I missed that one!
                    As for the 2nd question, this resource doesn't go into great detail, but I guess it'll have to do.

                      Yes the TDP of GT240 is higher; but does that mean the GT240 will run hotter at all times, even when it's being used for exactly the same task/s as the GT210?
                      I'm also considering the GTS240 but maybe that's going too high, there will be some rare gaming, what do ya'll reckon?

                        my double post was not intended, after sending my post i didnt see it so i posted it again.

                        The idle power consumption and temperature of both cards (GT 220 and GT 240) is very similar. I found a review which compares power consumption and temperatures: http://www.techspot.com/review/223-g...ew/page11.html

                        For games like Regnum Online, Nexuiz etc. the GT220 is certainly good enough, but not for high end games.

                          I see... Thanks for that link, it is somewhat enlightening!
                          Considering it's based on a larger fab process among other things, I suspect a jump to the GTS240 would be a jump too far for power/heat minimisation.

                          Does anyone know of any games the GT240 wouldn't be good enough for? I'll be gaming mostly on a LCD TV that's approx. 50".
                          As long as I can play the latest & most graphically intensive games (with their effects throttled down) at acceptable frame-rates, then I'll be happy.

                            why buying a gt240, which is basically a renamed g92? because a 4850 beats it soundly?

                              Because the main use is video acceleration / post processing....
                              And that is still quite rudimentary for AMD cards in Linux compared to nV.

                                When you would add using Win to your statement it would give at least a bit sense. 3D might be faster for those features fglrx provides, but wine is still not working as good as with nvidia. And when you want to play full hd movies then the choice is 100% clear.
