The GeForce 100 Series is a series of Tesla-based graphics processing units developed by Nvidia, first released in March 2009. Its cards are rebrands of GeForce 9 series cards, available only for OEMs. However, the GTS 150 was briefly available to consumers.

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.
