GeForce GT 520 Rolled Out Officially

NVIDIA updated its website with a description of a new entry-level product GeForce GT 520. Interestingly enough, the company didn't bother with posting a press release, but that was made up for by a whole wave of those posted by its partners.

So, GeForce GT 520 got 48 CUDA cores, 1GB of DDR3 memory, and a 64-bit bus. The graphics core/stream processors clock rate is 810/1620 MHz, memory works at 900 (1800) MHz. The novelty supports CUDA and PhysX as well as DirectX 11 API.

Available interfaces include DVI, HDMI and optional D-Sub. The reference card only takes one slot and is cooled by a small fan and a heatsink that covers both GPU and memory. Finally, the TDP is 29W.

All major NVIDIA partners have already released their variants of GeForce GT 520 to be priced $50-60, meaning that GeForce GT 520 will compete with AMD Radeon HD 6450 rolled out last week.

Just for your convenience, here's a small roundup of what partners are offering.
