Palit was kind enough to send us a GeForce GTS 250 for this review. I was a little confused when I first installed the card and it reported 1GB of memory. The box we received was clearly labeled 512MB (as you can see in the picture below).
As any good computer nerd would do, I consulted GPU-Z to clear things up:
When asked, Palit said that the wrong sticker must have been put on the box at the factory. So while I thought it was cool to get the 1GB version, I was disappointed because I was planning on using the GTS 250 and 9800 GTX+ together in SLI. Nvidia has stated that it is possible to SLI the 512MB GTS 250 with the 9800 GTX+, but I wanted to test it out for you guys. (btw... Palit assured me that my GTS 250 is 55nm even though GPU-Z says otherwise)
As you can see from the pictures below, the GTS 250 is practically identical to the latest version of the GeForce 9800 GTX+.
