EVGA Updates GeForce GTX 260 Cards with 55nm GPU

Jan 1, 2009
EVGA is certainly known as one of NVIDIA's largest board partners, which is why it comes as no surprise that this graphics card vendor has recently updated its range of new GT200-based products. Users and fans are now able to upgrade to one of the newest graphics cards on the market, the 55nm-based GeForce GTX 260, which EVGA has provided in three different flavors, coming to deliver the support required by even the most enthusiast game player.

As some of you already know, the GeForce GTX 260 has suffered a series of modifications, since it was initially released, alongside the higher-performance GTX 280. At first, the card was featured with just 196 shader cores, which were later maxed out to a total of 216, consequently increasing the level of performance achieved by the card. With the new GPU, NVIDIA has transitioned the technology to the new 55nm manufacturing process, thus allowing more room for the overclocking capabilities of the card, so we might see an even higher performance increase from this GT200-equipped GeForce card.

Regarding EVGA's updated line of GeForce GTX 260 graphics cards, users can now acquire a standard and two factory overclocked versions of the aforementioned card. The standard model boasts a 576MHz core speed, 1998MHz memory clock speed and 1242MHz shader core clock. The Superclocked and the SSC (SuperSuper Clocked) models boast speeds of 626Mhz/2106MHz/1350MHz and 675MHz/2304MHz/1458MHz, respectively.

If the performance specifications aren't enough for you, take into consideration that EVGA can't provide you with a lifetime warranty for each of the cards, once you have registered them. Price wise, these cards will cost you $259.99, $269.99 and $289.99, for the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 (55nm), GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked and GTX 260 Core 216 SSC, respectively.
