Even though Nvidia Corp. has formally announced its new mobile discrete graphics lineup, the company yet has to reveal when it plans to update its desktop graphics family. According to unofficial report, the company only plans to release its desktop DirectX 10.1-supporting chips in October.

The new graphics cards will be called Nvidia GeForce G210 and GeForce GT 220 and will be aimed at the entry-level market segments. The GeForce G210 (GT218 chip) graphics processing unit will have only 24 stream processors and will target $30 - $35 price-range. The GeForce GT220 (GT215 chip) graphics cards will sport 48 stream processors and will be priced between $55 and $60.

Both code-named GT215 and GT218 graphics chips will be produced using 40nm process technology at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company. The novelties will boast with support of DirectX 10.1 application programming interface.

Nvidia did not comment on the news-story.

Wonderful, DX 10.1 cards just in time to compete with ATI's DX 11 cards being released for Windows 7!

Well, I don't think these cards are meant to compete with ATi really. As for nVidia's actual competition to Evergreen, if the rumors turn out to be true, it would make sense it's taking longer to get right and to release. A MIMD architecture for your GPU would be a pretty big step forward, and should be worth the wait.

It seems this is going to be just a marketing ploy... not that it wasn't before... but now... it's even more so...Trying to market DX10.1 after they were downplaying it when ATI had it beofre... makes them lose credibility right? But what's sad is that most consumers wouldn't know the difference, and that is what they're aiming for.
