Following the imminent release of the GeForce GTS 450 on September 13th, NVIDIA is preparing to release the GeForce GT 430 on October 12th, according to Donanimhaber. As expected, the GT 430 will be based on GF108, the final forthcoming chip of the GF100 series. It will feature 1 GB GDDR3 over a 128-bit interface. Further specifications are yet unknown, though we expect in the range of 96 SP.

Following the imminent release of the GeForce GTS 450 on September 13th, NVIDIA is preparing to release the GeForce GT 430 on October 12th, according to Donanimhaber.

Further details are yet unknown, though we expect in the range of 96 SP.

Donanimhaber suggests that the performance is only between the previous-gen GT 220 and GT 240. The price has long been rumoured to be “under $100″, though we hope it is well below $100, considering the GT 240 GDDR5 version is in the $70-$80 range. Of course, the GT 430 does bring in DirectX 11 support, but then so does the Radeon HD 5670. However, slower than GT 240 is not where it needs to be to compete with the HD 5670.

Overall, a largely uninteresting product which will no doubt be completely overshadowed by the release of AMD Radeon HD 6700 series, which is expected to release in mid-October as well.
