EVGA rolls out Geforce GT 545

Written by Slobodan Simic

OEM-only card goes to retail
Although it was initially announced and released as an OEM-only card, Nvidia's Geforce GT 545 will find its way to retail/e-tail thanks to the EVGA.

The card is based on Nvidia's reference design and features 144 CUDA cores and works at 720MHz for the GPU and 1800MHz for 1.5GB of DDR3 memory paired up with a 192-bit memory interface. It features support for DirectX 11, Nvidia PhysX, CUDA and 3D Vision, and can be paired with a same card for some 2-way SLI fun. As noted, the card retained the reference look so we are looking at a single-slot card with an active cooler with a small fan.

The new GT 545 has HDMI, D-Sub and DVI outputs and it should start to appear in retail/e-tails shops pretty soon with a price tag set at around US $150.

Three years ago I gave $140+taxes for my 8800GT. And 545 will be comparable, if not a weaker card. Apparently few guys in the industry forgot the concept of planned obsolescence. Soon people will find no need to buy new card if their old boxes will run new Xbox360-ported-games fluently. I remember the times when i changed a vid card every year for 2.5X performance for the same $120-150.

thats the point i was making, this particular card is WAY overpriced..you can get gtx 460 for that price or cheaper and is 3x more performance than the 8800gt...soooo ?

@bardenck: Gotta be kidding me! gtx460 for $150, depending on a game\setting is hardly a twice better card. And g92 is like what? 4 year old card, based on the year older g80? And PhysX or DX11 on a sub-150 dollar card? Try to enable it in-game. And AMD took nV example and started renaming their cards instead of developing new. The way I see it, industry is in serious slowdown. :(

what part exactly did you think i was kidding about, you can get them cheaper than 150 actually, and yes i own two of them and my other one is in my gf's rig atm and i run bfbc2 MAXXXED @ 1080 dx11, 16xqAA with just one and get about 70fps in multiplayer and i have a core i5 760...whats the problem?

edit: i read some reviews and its more like 2.5x

Aaaah, OCd - different story. Long story, but I'm not overclocking since I've burnt vmem on my previous 7900GS. I never sell them - give away to my younger brothers, so I like them live long...

@ noel1993

So are you saying that you cannot get GTX460 for Sub $150? Are you also saying that its not 2X-3X faster than the 8800GT?

the reviews at 2.5x performance of the 9800gt were with REFERENCE CLOCKED 460's, i was just stating mine were at 800 cuz i said it got 70 fps etc.. and you can buy the OC'ed one for 139 after rebate...
