We all recognize that Nvidia is attempting to conversion their graphics cards to the 55nm producing process. The conversion started with the 9800 GTX+ and has made its way into a some hand beaked 9800 GT models which have still to find their way to retail.
Lots of us have been expecting for the reduced cores to finally flow down into the newer cards namely the GTX 200 series. The GTX 280 and 260 cards are power absorbing monsters which are not simply valuable for Nvidia to produce but also donít fit very well with the environmentally favorable look of todayís marketplace.
Efficiency both energy wise and production-wise is the name of the game these days and with ATI so soon having 55nm parts on the postpones for the improve part of a year now, it was high time Nvidia made the conversion as well. The users and their side line demanded it.
We have been assuring a large number of GTX 200-series card on sale as of late? The cause for this is that Nvidia is attempting to acquire rid of their 65nm cores and starting instantly, we should see 55nm GTX 260 cards make their way to retailers.
Recognizing a 55nm card from a 65nm one can be a dashing task later we have heard that several board partners will not be promoting the new core on their packaging or PR materials. Yet the name hasnít changed this is yet the GTX 260.
The need of a name change is because of a number of concludes but first and foremost between them is that the 55nm cores will not extend any performance growths over the older cores. All 55nm GTX 260 cards will characteristic 216 sharers but other than that this is yet the same card we have come to know.
