Predecessor GeForce 9 Series
Successor GeForce 200 Series

The GeForce 100 Series is a family of graphics processing units developed by Nvidia. The first card of this series was launched in January 2009. Similar to the GeForce 300 series, the GeForce 100 series consists of re-branded video cards from the previous generation available only for OEMs. Products are based on a slightly repolished Tesla (microarchitecture).

Products[edit]

The GeForce 100 Series cards include the G 100, GT 120, GT 130, GT 140 and GTS 150. The GT 120 is a based on the 9500 GT with improved thermal designs while the GT 130 is based on the 9600 GSO (which itself was a re-badged 8800 GS). The GT 140 is simply a rebadged 9600 GT. The GTS 150 is an OEM version of the GTS 250 with some slight changes. Despite being based upon previous 9 series cards, the G 100, GT 120, and GT 130 utilize entirely different PCB's and slightly different clock speeds.
