NVIDIA GT 340: New Nomenclature, Same Good Ol’Performance

No matter how many times a snake sheds its skin, it will still be a belly-crawling poisonous predator inside out. It’s the same thing with NVIDIA when they launched a couple of GT 200 graphics cards renamed under the banner of the OEM-exclusive GT 300 series that include the GT 320, 330 and 340 respectively. The good thing is that the 2XX was a good series considering their entry-level design and cost. This means that the next OEM computer you buy that comes with a pre-installed NVIDIA GT 300 will have more than a pretty descent graphics card.

Take a look at the GeForce GT 340 for example, under all that marketing skin, it’s basically a rebranded GeForce GT 240. Therefore, it shares the same GPU running at 550MHz, a choice of 128 bit 512MB or 1GB of GDDR5 RAM set to operate at 1700 MHz and 96 stream processors clocked at 1,340MHz. The GT 340 is certified for Windows Vista and supports Microsoft DirectX 10.1. Judging from the card’s specs, it should be able to handle Windows 7 without breaking a sweat. This single slot graphics card uses the PCI-E 2.0 bus and features a standard VGA, DVI and HDMI outputs. It can support a maximum of 2560×1600 digital resolution and 6048×1536 VGA Resolution.

Like the newer NVIDIA video cards, the GT 300 series will be featuring NVIDIA’s proprietary Unified Architecture, CUDA and PhysX Technology, Lumenex Engine, Hardware Decode Acceleration, Bad Edit Correction and support for 3D Vision.
