Galaxy Microsystems, a leading manufacturer and worldwide supplier of NVIDIA based graphics solutions, announced today the release of the Galaxy GeForce® GT 430 graphics card with TrueHD and DTS-HD HD audio bitstreaming.
“Our new GT 430 delivers a home theater experience with HD video and audio so amazing that you’ll want to charge admission.” said Shane Vance, US Sales, Galaxy.
The GeForce GT 430 GPU
The new GeForce GT 430 GPU is a replacement for the GT 220 that was never quite card that we fell in love with. NVIDIA's Fermi-based GF108 chip is definitely a better performance than anything from the GT200 generation but can it keep up with the AMD Radeon HD 5570 and HD 5550 GPUs and make a case for itself?

It has been an interesting couple of weeks for NVIDIA as far as we are concerned. The company hosted a handful of press and a huge group of researchers and academics at the GPU Technology Conference to demonstrate the value of GPU computing, CUDA and the programs that NVIDIA has setup to support these programmers.
ASUS makes it better
ASUS is known for creating some truly unique graphics cards that differ wildly from the reference designs we are used to seeing. The ROG Matrix HD 5870 card with 2GB of memory is just that with overclocking options you need to see. For the more tame of us, there is the V2 HD 5870 that is cheaper and much simpler in feature set.

nVIDIA has released information on their two upcoming professional level Quadro graphics cards. Neither are going to be the upper end of the lineup, as you can see by the CUDA core count which even on the midranged Quadro 2000 has less than a GTX 460, 192 versus 336, which implies six streaming multiprocessors. The one thing not mentioned in The Inquirer's article is how anyone is supposed to locate these cards when there are so many outdated and similarly named FX cards on the mar

It seems a really good idea keeping an eye on graphics driver updates right now, with a battle for one of the sweetest spots for gamers being fought between single card and dual card setups that cost about the same price. The contenders are the GTX 480 and 460 SLI as well as the 5870 in CrossFireX and the variable is the ability for the driver to improve scaling in new versions. Since an extra card has been added, the ability for the driver to work properly often changes from game to game and when you bring multiple monitors into the equation it can change even more.

During the opening keynote at the GPU Technology Conference, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang brought out a few details about NVIDIA's upcoming GPU product roadmap. There isn't a large amount of detail that we can discuss yet, but some information is better than none and I know how our readers like to debate and theorize about the future of graphics.
