NVIDIA shows GeForce GT 420 ahead of release

About a week after NVIDIA released the 400-series GPUs for notebooks comes news of a desktop equivalent. The card, called the GeForce GT 420, has been pulled from the maker's website but not before it was revealed that it will be an OEM only product, available in pre-assembled computers and not on its own.

The spec sheet shows that it will still support DirectX 11 and will contain 48 stream processors, a 128-bit memory interface and 2GB of dedicated 900MHz DDR3 RAM.

The power consumption is said to fall at 50W, and the image shows a low-profile design with an active cooler and an absence of cooling fans. The card is said to support a maximum digital resolution of 2560x1600. It will support DVI, HDMI and VGA output, though not all of these have to be enabled on a single card.

When the GT 420 will show up in PCs remains to be seen. [via TechReport]
