I posted the GT300s reported/leaked specs earlier on - Ive gone blank in recalling them
Not a suprise at all. Some of their mid end cards already do sport it.
Im thinking nvidia were hoping to pair the 'hot-hot-hot- GDDR5 with the relatively cooler 55nm(and smaller) parts and arrive at some type of happier medium than the Radeon 4870X2 marshmallow cooker
