Shortly after introduction of GeForce GTX 560, NVIDIA made another step towards OEM market and presented two new solutions — GeForce GT 545 and GT 530.
GeForce GT 530 is designed to expand possibilities of multimedia PCs with little spending on graphics system. The cards is build on GF118 chip with 96 stream processors, 16 TMUs, 4 ROPs and 128-memory bus. On-board DDR3 buffer size can be either 1GB or 2GB running at 898MHz, GPU is clocked at 700 MHz.
GeForce GT 545 features more technologically advanced GPU GF116 (same that is used in GeForce GTX 550 Ti) chip. However, chip performance config has been cut: number of CUDA cores reduced from 196 to 144, amount of Texture units changed from 32 to 24. The card can be released with 1.5GB or 3G of DDR3 3GB (16 ROPs and 128-bit interface) or 1GB of GDDR5 memory (24 ROPs and 192-bit interface). Clock rates for GT 545 are 870/1740/1998 MHz in case of GDDR5 memory and 720/1440/90 MHz in case of DDR3 memory use. In reference with card version it is equipped with single or dual slot cooling system.
