Nvidia Corp. has quietly unveiled its new low-cost graphics card aimed at branded desktop computer makers. The GeForce GT 440 will increase performance of PCs aimed at casual gamers.

Nvidia GeForce GT 440 features 144 stream processors operating at 1189MHz as well as 192-bit memory controller that connects memory operating at up to 1800MHz frequency. The novelty works at 594MHz. Naturally, the new graphics board supports all modern video technologies, including decoding of various contemporary formats, such as Blu-ray 3D (MPEG4-MVC). The new device consumes up to 56W of power.

"Nvidia GeForce GT 440 delivers unparalleled game realism with incredibly detailed characters, terrain, and game environments on hot titles like Civilization V," a statement by Nvidia reads.

Based on the fact that the GT 440 features 192-bit bus, the card is powered by the code-named GF106 graphics processing unit.

Given that the novelty is aimed at OEMs only at present, its exact price remains unknown. It is highly likely that the GeForce GT 440 costs less than $100.

Since it is based on the GF106, we have to understand the GT440 uses crippled dies. No problem if the price is right and if it has enough ROP's. The reference card is very compact. A retail version could be a nice alternative to the underpowered GT430.

There is also a new GT420, apparently a clocked-up version of the GT220:
