Nvidia GeForce GTS 250

Nvidia GeForce GTS 250

Some Nvidia partners are reporting increased sales in last month than year 2008’s last quarter. This impressive change was the result of Nvidia’s dual gpu card GTX 295 and single gpu card GTX 285 release. Also Nvidia’s GTX 260 55nm card, 9600GT and 9500GT cards are selling well too, specially 9600GT and 9500GT 1GB versions are selling like crazy. Buyers prefer video cards with 1GB of memory instead of 512MB even though there is no performance difference at all and even if there is any advantage it’s not much noticeable.
But Nvidia isn’t stopping here, they have more plans and one of them is to rename their G92 series, which will rumoured to come next month on CeBIT 2009 trade show in Germany. First card to get a new name will be GeForce 9800 GTX+, it will renamed to GeForce GTS 250 and second card will be GeForce 9800 GT to get name GeForce GTS 240, you have been hearing about these mid-range Nvidia cards to get renamed, now next month you will probably see them, if the rumours are true. Though these cards are getting new names specifications of these graphics cards are all identical except for a new VBIOS.
I don’t get it, why re-release a video card that is already in the market? who would buy it? let’s hope they come with some improvements over GeForce 9800 GT and GeForce 9800GTX+ edition.
