Inno3D GT 430 review

1. Meet the Inno3D GT430

The Nvidia GeForce GT 430 is the first mainstream Fermi GPU for the PC using the same Fermi architecture in the GTS 450, GTX 460, GTX470 and GTX 480. The Fermi architecture was designed to run next generation DX11 titles and Blu-Ray 3D.

The GeForce GT 430 is considered as the replacement of the GTS 240 GPU. Its 40nm GPU is clocked at 700MHz, comes with 96 Cuda cores 2GB DDR3 memory running at 1800 Mhz and a 128-bit memory interface. The result is a memory bandwidth of 28.8 GB/sec and a Texture Fill Rate of 5.6 billion/sec.

GeForce GT 430 is specifically designed to power today's digital media PCs, providing enough power for photo and video editing, Blu-ray 3D, mainstream gaming, and the next generation of GPU-accelerated Web browsers. The card also supports CUDA Technology, PhysX technology and comes equipped with an HDMI 1.4 output.

NVIDIA believes that they’ve made the ultimate HTPC card, and that’s the line they’re going to be using to sell it. However, the company claims that it could also be used for gaming. Specifically, compared to the GT240, the new GT430 scores approximately 1200 points higher in the Vantage (Pro ) benchmark and also is more powerful in popular games such as "Crysis" and "Lost Planet," according to the company.

Below you see a comparison among the GT 430 with some other Fermi -based solutions. Fermi series. Looking at the specs, we can easily understand that the GT 430 series are a replacement of the GT 240. At $80, the GT 430 also goes directly up against the Radeon HD 5570 (DDR3 & GDDR5) and the Radeon 5670. However, all of these cards are faster in gaming performance, and that's why NVIDIA has chosen to presents the GT 430 as the optimum HTPC performer. But let's wait to see some benchmark figures first before drawing any conclusions.

Meet the Inno3D GT430

Today we will present the Inno3D GeForce GT 430 graphics card.


  • CUDA cores 96
  • Graphics Clock (MHz) 700
  • Processor Clock (MHz) 1400MHz
  • Memory Clock (MHz) 1800MHz
  • Max Memory Amount 2GB DDR3
  • Memory Interface 128 bit
  • Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec) 28.8
  • Texture Fill Rate (billion/sec) 5.6

The Inno3D GT 430 retails in the following small package:

The bundle includes just ROM discs with drivers and not any cables. The half-height single- slot card is equipped with a small heatsink:

DVI-D, D-Sub and of course HDMI v1.4 ports are provided. The card is powered by the PCI-e slot so there is no need for any external power:

Below you see the card's basic specifications.The GPU core runs at 700MHz, the memory at 900MHz and the Shaders at 1400MHz. The Inno3D GT 430 runs at stock speeds leaving us with some hopes that it could be easily overclocked:
