Id like to know if there would be any reason HTPC-wise to upgrade from a single slot space Nvidia GT545 to a single slot space GT640 (kepler).

 

I wouldn't mind a little bit faster 3D graphics; but, curious if Purevideo processing has improved any; such as FULL video processing in all common video formats; including possibly more advanced deinterlacing .  I can't find that Purevideo HD generation chart anymore.

 

Also, which OEM will come out with this card first?  Zotac maybe?  Any ideas when it will be available for sale?


Can your HTPC Media Center / DVR Do this??

If you have a gddr5 gt545, then I would stick with that since the current gt640s are gddr3 only. I have hears rumours of a gts650 coming in August (or maybe sooner) so I'm holding out for that one. Especially if there is a passive one!

They don't make one slot space DDR5 GT545's. I seriously doubt there would be any model higher than the 640 Kepler is one slot space unless theres some weird specialty card with multiple direct power supply cable connection.

Having said that.. I'm very curious to know what video processing features have been added.
