The chip has 128-bit memory controller that supports various types of memory, but initially graphics cards based on GF108 will be equipped with 1800MHz DDR3 memory. Power consumption of the novelty is in the range of 50W and many partners of Nvidia plan to release them in low-profile form-factor.

Nvidia claims that the main advantages of the GeForce GT 430 is its 50% performance increase compared to GT 220, high level of compatibility with modern games compared to integrated graphics cores, DirectX 11 support, advanced video engine with Blu-ray 3D support as well as support for protected audio path that is needed to bit-stream lossless multi-channel audio to external decoders using HDMI bus.

The GF108 graphics processing unit has already been esigned into a variety of desktop and notebook platforms from the world's leading OEMs, including Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Samsung, Sony and others.

The GeForce GT 430 is available as an add-in card from the world's leading suppliers, including ASL, ASUS, Colorful, ECS, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, Jetway, KFA2, Leadtek, MSI, Palit, Point of View, PNY, Sparkle, Zotac and others.
