One more TPC!NVIDIA will offer a upgraded GTX 260 in mid-September

The graphic card battle is getting more fierce right now. Our source just inform us that NVIDIA will upgrade GTX 260 in mid September, offering one more TPC inside the G200 GPU.

The original GTX 260 have 8 TPCs (Texture Processing Cluster) totally, but the new GTX 260 have 9 TPCs. That means the numbers of shader processor have been increased from 192 to 216. In G200 chip, one TPC contains 24 shader processors.

Other than the TPC upgrade, the other specs are keeps the same. That means the card still runs at 576/1242/999Mhz (core/shader/memory), Memory interface keeps 448bit, and memory size is 896MB.

We guess that this upgrade will help the card to suppress HD 4870. But HD 4850 X2 is right around the corner…

    Yes, but price of NVidia is 25% more than 4870 = not worth that money!

    ATI FTW

    mike u idiot, 260′s are cheaper then 4870′s.

  5. nuffsaid Says:

    anyway NVidia take the piss, they release there cards at £500 or £600 and start crying that nobody’s buying them . ATI come straight in at £200 and its game over.

    mr cool, where ?

  7. Semlan Says:

    Could start up with saying that Mr Cool can take his E-penis and stuff it some place.

    In most parts of Europe the 260 is more expensive than the 4870. Kind of weird seeing the prices in the US being opposite.

    I agreed. Cool, please don’t post here any more your information is false.

    Comparing a dual-GPU card against a single GPU card is an unfair comparison. People need to get it through their heads that dual GPU card will always be faster but it is still TWO GPUS!

    @ J3ST3RM4A3

    Okay then, why is it fair to compare a HUGE 576mm squared Nvidia chip to a puny 256mm squared chip from ATI? A huge chip will obviously perform way better on similar manufacturing processes.(the GT200 55nm will shrink to 470mm squared, still nice and chunky compared to the RV770)

    You need to get it through your head that ATI went with the “small die route” purposely making small dies, powerful or not and putting 2 together on one PCB to compete with Nvidia’s offering, single or double gpu’s.

    Dual-GPU’s have their cons, but ATI went with it, Will the next gen’s x2 ATI be unfair unless Nvidia made an x2 of their own?

  11. fail Says:

    This card seems like pointless unless it has the same price(which it won’t). Nvidia can’t afford to waste their time like this when ATI/AMD is moving forward with products that are actually new and worth the effort instead of making minor improvements.

    Plus, aren’t they making the gtx260 in 55nm fairly soon? Why wouldn’t they focus on that? Nvidia hasn’t really made much sense lately.

  12. fail Says:

    Hmmmm… ‘like pointless.’
    I sound like a twelve year old girl.
    My bad.

  13. hoho Says:

    @fail
    My guess: the price will keep the same.
    look they even dont change the name…

  14. nuffsaid Says:

    NVIDIA cant change the name, because that would mean they lost to ATI ..
    and they don’t want us to think that..
