After talking to several people in the know, we managed to get to the bottom of this quite exciting announcement. While we don't have a final name for the card, it turns out that EVGA created a dual GPU card by combining GeForce GTS 250 with GeForce GTX 275. That's right, a dedicated PhysX GPU in the form of trusty G92 [debuted as 8800, rebranded as 9800, GTS 250 and GTX 260M/280M] and GT206/GT200b GPU for graphics. This is quite an interesting combination, to say the least. You're free to correct me in the comments if I am wrong - but I think this is the first time that any company took two different GPU chips and combined them on the same PCB. I've been a tech journalist for 10 years [Dec 15, 1999], but I never heard of such a combination.
EVGA expected to launch GT200b card with G92b for PhysX
