But there is no official press release or website update from Nvidia. As a result, I am not sure what to call the new GTX 260 because Nvidia has not told me. So for now, our new GTX 260 entry is "GeForce GTX 260 (216 Shaders)".
From the looks of the reviews, the new 260 can give a 5 to 10 percent frame rate boost when compared to the old GTX 260 depending on if the game being tested is thirsting for more shader power. The overclocking potential of the BFG OCX and Zotac AMP2! models is frankly astounding. I will post our patented overclocking chart after I find some more reviews, but increases of almost 25% over the core reference speed, 29% over the reference memory speed and 24% over the reference shader speed is phenomenal!
