G210 is GT218/D10M1 based using P690 and P691 PCB designs supporting DDR3 and DDR2 respectively. G210 has 24 shader processors clocked at 600MHz core and 1425MHz shader. G210 runs on 64-bit memory interface with 512MB DDR2/3 memories clocked at 800MHz. These cards will be priced very cheaply between US$30-35 replacing the current GeForce 9400 series.
GT 220 is GT215-300/D10M2 based and there will be 3 variants; P681 (DDR3), P682 (DDR2) and P680 (GDDR3). GT 220 has 48 shader processors clocked at 625MHz core and 1375MHz shader. It has 1GB memories onboard on 128-bit memory interface clocked at 800MHz. These cards are going to cost somewhere between US$55-60 and is going to outperform GeForce 9500 GT by much.
