We had installed the XFX GeForce GT 220 graphics card into our Intel Core i7 870 test system with an Intel DP55KG motherboard, 2GB of OCZ DDR3 memory, an OCZ Vertex 64GB SSD, and a Samsung SyncMaster 305T LCD monitor. When it came to the Linux software we were using a development snapshot of Ubuntu 9.10 with the Linux 2.6.31 kernel, GNOME 2.28.0, and X Server 1.6.4. This was with a clean Ubuntu installation and all stock settings, except Compiz was disabled during testing. Upon installing the GeForce GT 220 graphics card we had installed the NVIDIA 190.36 beta driver. This driver, which was released back in September, had run fine with the GeForce GT 220 and it was properly detected with working 2D/3D/VDPAU acceleration. The vendor ID of course was 0x10de while the device ID was 0x0a20. PowerMizer worked with the GT216 provided three power states of 135/135MHz, 405/324MHz, and 625/400MHz.

The integrated GPU thermal sensor also worked under Linux, which was exposed through the Phoronix Test Suite to monitor the GPU temperature during testing. The thermal results are to be shared later in this article when the GPU was running at its stock speeds.
