New GeForce GTX 260 to beat Radeon HD 4870?

Posted on Tuesday, Sep 02 2008 @ 15:44 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
A new GeForce GTX 260 graphics card with more horsepower is expected to arrive later this month. FUD Zilla claims the card will have 216 shaders instead of 192 and says the new card will definitely win over the Radeon HD 4870. It will be $50 more expensive though.
The new card should be available at some point in September and it definitely win over Radeon 4870. That is the whole point and it looks like the new GTX 260 will end up around $50 more expensive than the current ones.

It looks like that this is the first „new“ product that will try to consolidate its roadmap in the war against ATI. ATI came out strong and this time Nvidia has a better answer than simply renaming its current products, it will slightly alter them and market them as new.
