The GT 640 GPU was originally launched last month with an DDR3 memory interface, The new D5 version would come equipped with a GDDR5 memory interface which means bandwidth would be doubled along with faster clock speeds and better overclocking support by adding an 6-Pin PCIe power connector, the original didn’t had any since power was provided through the PCIe expansion slot.
