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 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.

These days you see a lot around the web about Nvidia, it looks like Nvidia is working full force to regain it’s title of GPU king, this competition between Nvidia and ATI/AMD is working really great for us gamers bringing latest technologies at lower prices, last year both companies bring some of the most powerful cards to the market and I am hoping same for this year.

Starting Q2 ’09 the Santa Clara, California based chip maker will have 40nm fabrication processed high-end gpu, 40nm fabrication process will reduce manufacturing costs resulting in cheaper gpu’s and gpus consuming less power.

In year 2009 all the gpu’s from Nvidia up from Enthusiast level down to Value level all of them will be fabricated in 40nm technology. Nvidia has planned to wipe out its whole gpu lineup with new 40nm fabricated gpus by late Q3 2009. The Santa Clara, California based chip maker first 40nm gpu is expected to hit the market in February/March though exact date of arrival is not confirmed yet.

Nvidia has already released their G200b core 55nm GTX 260 cards and their GTX 295 and GTX 285 graphic cards are about to hit the market.

GT214 and GT216 are to replace G94 and G96 video cards in Mainstream level. GT218 is to replace G98 video card from Value level. Nvidia will bring a newer IGP (Integrated Graphics Processor) too, the iGT209, all these gpus will hit the market early in Q3 2009 and later in forth quarter of 2009 GT212 will be replaced too by a powerful GT300 video card in Enthusiast and Performance level.

Nvidia Roadmap To 40nm GPUs

Nvidia Roadmap To 40nm GPUs

Evga brings its GeForce GTX 260 fabricated at 55nm with 216 processing cores in Super-SuperClocked edition to the table. SSC model is 896-P3-1258-AR. A die shrink means lower power usage, less heat and better overclocking capability. It has looks and perform quite better than a 65nm GTX260 at stocked speed and on par with a stocked speed GTX 280 and it’s better overclocked than the XFX Black Edition.

GPU Clock speeds are 675MHz , memory at 896MB with a bus-width of 448-bit GDDR3 1.0ns, Memory Clocks are 2304MHz (effective) and Shader at 1458 MHz. This card has the potential to increase these clocks even further.
