EVGA’s GeForce GT 430

Well I just received an e-mail from EVGA and it is official, NVIDIA has released their GeForce GT 430.  As expected it includes Blu-ray 3D Support via HDMI 1.4a and HD Audio Bitstreaming.  This will be the first HTPC-centric consumer video card to offer 3D Blu-ray and HD Audio Bitstreaming support.

I’m very happy to see that it also includes a low-profile option and is single slot.  

It is worth mentioning that Blu-ray playback software will need to be updated to support the new chipset but I’m positive we will see that done quickly if they are not already updated.


The EVGA GT 430 has arrived. Tap into the horsepower of the GPU for a visually-charged boost on your favorite applications.
