We spoke with an Nvidia partner this morning and got confirmation that they will be shipping GT240 units with GDDR5 on board. There will be plenty of GDDR3 versions offered initially but the plan is that higher spec versions will be released later.
We were also told that the GT240 will be shipping with many custom cooling solutions and it is sure to be a decent seller for Nvidia especially as the 9600 series before it proved a popular choice with Nvidia based gamers on a budget. It should be a nice upgrade for media centers with the 40nm tech as well.
The estimated shipping date is around November 18-20th but confirmation is not yet forthcoming.
