With the launch of NVIDIAs first high-end DX11 desktop parts finally behind us, word has it NVIDIA is in the midst of planning its refreshment of mid-range and entry-level parts which the company aims to have ready by as early as June'10.
It's believed that there are three cards in the works dubbed the GeForce GTS 450, GTS 440 and GTS 430, all of which will use NVIDIA's 40nm GF104 core that carries with it up to 256 shader cores, 64 TMUs, 32 ROPs and a 256-bit memory bus. The GTS 450 and 440 are both said to use GF104 to the full extent, whilst the lower grade GTS 430 will be cut down with 192 shader cores, 48 TMUs, 24 ROPs and run on a 192-bit memory bus.
Pricing was also mentioned with an expectancy in the region of 200-230 for the GTS 450, 160-180 for the GTS 440 and 130-150 for the GTS 430.
Following on from the launch of these cards, it's been made apparent that NVIDIAs next point of focus will be cards based on their GF106 and GF108 cores which cater to the lower-mid and entry level market segments.
Of course, given the early nature of this information, be sure to pinch some salt.
