In a response to ATI’s price cut for their Radeon HD 4870 card, which is a close competitor of GeForce GTX 260, Nvidia has reduced the prices of their GeForce GTX 260, this is the price cut for their 216-Core 55nm-based GTX 260 video cards. Highly overclocked versions of GTX 260 are selling at $200+, mostly stock clocked versions and some moderately overclocked versions are available at under $200.

These are just the examples of what is available at the moment, you go checkout yourself all the offerings available for GeForce GTX 260.
Lets hope that Nvidia’s GeForce GTS 250 get a reduction in price and start selling at around $100, currently it sells at price of $150.
GeForce GTX 260 216 Core is one of the best video card to be honest, actually it’s a beast, you run any game with this card and it will run them smoothly without any lagging, it’s performance will leave you with amazement, I highly recommend you get one if you don’t have one already, I think at this price point you can’t ask for more though you can greed for more price reduction but this is the best you can get at the moment, so, don’t wait, BUY one! this is the time!

Nvidia high-end video cards, both single chip gpu GTX 285 and dual chip gpu GTX 295 with water cooling are reported to launch by two of the Nvidia partners.
Water Cooled GTX 285
EVGA is the first one to release a GTX 285 graphics card with water-cooling block installed on it. Though there is no design change in pcb they simply slap the water block on the card, despite the fact that it’s a reference designed video card it’s water cooling solution sure helps with better overclocking.
Clocks Of The Card
This card comes with core clock of 720MHz upped from 648MHz of reference and has 1GB of 512-bit GDDR3 memory which is clocked at an amazing 2770MHz which is default at 2484MHz and shader clock raised to 1,620MHz from 1476MHz. This card has 240 Processing Cores and at the moment it’s the best single chip gpu.

Water Cooled GTX 295
Now let’s move to dual chip gpu, here, BFG is the proud one to introduce a water cooled GTX 295. Alas it’s a reference designed pcb with default clocks, mean it’s not a factory overclocked card but a video card with a water cooling block from Danger Den installed on it, this water block covers GPU, RAM, voltage regulators, and I/O chip thus this graphics card works cooler than the one with Nvidia reference cooling solution, water cooling makes it a perfect choice if you like to overclock your card yourself, but still if you want a factory overclocked water cooled GTX 295 wait till the month of March, 2009.
Clocks Of The Card
Since it’s a reference card it’s both GPUs runs at 576MHz, it has total 1792MB (896MB x 2) of GDDR3 memory which is clocked at 1998MHz, shader clock is at 1242MHz and this video card comes with a total of 480 processing cores which is 240 processing cores for each GPU.

BFG has included two standard removable fittings, each for 3/8″ and 1/2″ inner diameter tubing as well as two micro removable fittings for “space constrained” Nvidia SLI setup, two tubing clams for 5/8″ and 3/4″ outer diameter tubing bundle with other water cooling accessories.

Availability and Price:
At the moment price and arrival of both of these cards is unknown, so, we should wait and see, you can expect to pay a hefty amount to purchase one of these cards.

EVGA has proved again how good they are when it comes to customer support by releasing an SLI Enhancement Patch.
SLI Profiles
SLI profiles are a part of Nvidia Forceware drivers, they are present in a form of expandable list in Nvidia control panel. What these profiles does? these SLI profiles are needed for pc games and 3D programs to use two or more GPUs to their fullest extent, some games or 3D programs require specific SLI profiles build for them otherwise they won’t run or perform well in SLI mode. As you know every month several new games are released, even though Forceware drivers can run them we need special SLI profiles to get optimized performance from our dual-GPUs for those specific games or 3D programs. Since Nvidia takes some time to update Forceware drivers to bring SLI support for those specific games or 3D programs EVGA took the plunge to release their own enhanced SLI profiles.

SLI Enhancement Patch Info
This is the first SLI Enhancement patch (version: 02.11.09) from EVGA, Evga will update it from time to time, it’s available on their site for their registered users, this patch will improve the SLI performance in pc games Necrovision Demo (DX10 mode) as well as Burnout Paradise. EVGA recommends using this patch with NVIDIA’s ForceWare 182.05 WHQL driver suite.
Whom Should Use This Patch?
If you own a dual gpu card like 7950GX2, 9800GX2 or GTX 295 and if you are running two gpu in SLI configuration.
Operating System
This patch will work only in Windows Vista 32-bit and 64-bit as well as in Windows 7.

GTX 295 is out, Nvidia’s third dual GPU card, following the GeForce 7950 GX2 and 9800 GX2 and ready to rumble with ATI’s champion HD 4870 X2, both are dual chip based cards. ATI/AMD choose the design of dual chips named R700 placed on a single printed circuit board (PCB). On the other hand Nvidia placed each chip named GT200 on it’s own pcb with a large heatsink and fan placed right in the middle of both pcb’s. So, GTX295 has launched and all the manufacturers have released GTX 295 cards, almost all of them have reference design except EVGA.

Where all the GPU manufacturers launched reference design GTX295, EVGA is the proudly one to bring an overclocked GTX295 to the market and this is the first overclocked GTX 295 GPU to hit the market. They named it EVGA GeForce GTX 295 Plus and it’s model number is 017-P3-1292-AR.
