If you do a bit of searching, a lot of people have been asking questions about this phantom GPU in the forums. After the original announcement, there was silence....

But it looks like the first cards are beginning to surface. Apparently, they're made for OEM/prebuild channels.

Here are a couple of articles:

- https://www.tomshardware.com/news/the-lowest-end-gpu-geforce-gt-1010-available-benchmarked-pictured

- https://www.cowcotland.com/news/79832/maj-la-tonitruante-nvidia-geforce-gt-1010-enfin-testee-et-vous-savez-quoi-elle-est-grave-a-la-ramasse.html

- https://videocardz.com/newz/nvidia-geforce-gt-1010-spotted-on-chinese-marketplace-for-70-usd

As you can imagine, the gaming benchmark results are less than stellar. I particularly enjoyed this quip from TH:
"With 256 CUDA cores, 16 texture units, 16 render backends, and 2GB of memory onboard, the GeForce GT 1010 would have been a fine gaming solution in 2008."

I wonder, however, if the video processing features (encoding/decoding) are better than on the 6500XT... that would be the ultimate humiliation.
