NVIDIA's GeForce GT 240 didn't exactly set the world alight when it was announced back in November 2009, but a passive model could tick some of the right boxes for a mid-range HTPC.
Fortunately for those who've been thinking along the same lines, Inno3D looks set to introduce one of the first passive GeForce GT 240s in the form of an EXtreme edition.
There's no word on availability or pricing, but Inno3D's card, pictured above by expreview.com, is said to be stock-clocked with a GPU operating at 550MHz, along with 96 stream processors at 1,340MHz and either 512MB or 1GB of memory running at an effective 3,400MHz.
The card comes equipped with DVI, VGA and HDMI connectivity, and Inno3D's passive cooling solution consists of some 50 aluminium fins, four copper heatpipes and an all-copper base. Decent-looking solution for the quiet-computing crowd, but it looks like a no-go for low-profile chassis.
