NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260-216 not gaining traction

Posted on Friday, October 10 2008 @ 03:09:22 CEST by


X-bit Labs reports graphics card makers are reluctanct to adopt the new GeForce GTX 260 with 216 cores:
The world’s most influential supplier of discrete graphics chips recently released an improved version of its GeForce GTX 260 graphics card that features 216 stream processing units, a substantial increase compared to the GeForce GTX 260 with 192 stream processors available earlier. The attempt was made in order to stop invasion of ATI Radeon 4870 graphics cards into the higher-end market. Nvidia has even maintained the price of the model 260 at the same level as less powerful model 260: $299 a card.

But the attempt was not successful, it seems: many of the largest suppliers of Nvidia GeForce-based graphics cards, including, but not limited to, Asustek Computer, Gainward, MicroStar International as well as Leadtek Research, still do not sell graphics cards powered by the so-called GeForce GTX 260-216.

According to market sources, many companies “just have too many” GeForce GTX 260-192 graphics cards available in stock. This seems to be correct, as Nvidia has been aggressively advertising the GeForce brand along with the new GeForce GTX 200-series graphics cards in the recent weeks and also pushing the older graphics cards into the hands of its partners and into the channel.
