It's simply nVida's way of rebranding the same thing over and over with a minor change here and there, and selling as a "new" next generation product, of course at new next generation prices as well. OvrClkr a b à CPUs September 8, 2009 6:21:46 PM Not really, you can get a GTS 250 for less than 120.00$ More or less the same price as a 9800GTX... But the 250 uses less power and performs better.... Look at the 8800 Ultra... they still sell for 350.00$+ on e-bay..... Maziar a b Î Nvidia a b à CPUs September 9, 2009 6:33:31 AM Well the performance difference isn't much but yes it uses less power,for under $120 it looks a good choice fjc1998 September 10, 2009 3:15:03 AM no i mean it gtx 250 it says on it djcoolmasterx September 10, 2009 3:37:29 AM Then they got it wrong then. http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/product_geforce_gts_250_... Nvidia call it the GTS250 dndhatcher September 10, 2009 3:41:14 AM need a link or something. I only find GPUs called GTX 250. djcoolmasterx September 10, 2009 3:44:49 AM Once again: http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_geforce_gts_250_us... vpsaline September 10, 2009 3:57:29 AM its nothing like a 8800 gtx OvrClkr a b à CPUs September 10, 2009 4:30:35 AM Anything wrong with having a GTS 250? fjc1998 September 10, 2009 4:51:32 AM actually a gts 250 is basicallya 8800gts .A gts 250 runs cooler wich is better. But you could get a 8800gts for $90.A GTS 250 for $120+. OvrClkr a b à CPUs September 10, 2009 5:54:36 AM The 250 is a re-badged 9800GTX not a 8800GTS....The 8800GTS was a 640MB 320bit DDR3 with 96 SP's while the 250 is a 512MB or 1GB 256bit DDR3 with 128 SP's ..... So they are basically 2 very different cards...... EVGA 640-P2-N821-AR GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB 320-bit GDDR3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... EVGA 512-P3-1151-TR GeForce GTS 250 Superclocked Edition 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Maziar a b Î Nvidia a b à CPUs September 10, 2009 7:16:48 AM GTS 250 has 128 SPs like 8800GTX,8800ULTRA,8800GTS 512 and 9800GTX 8800GTS has 3 models,one is 320MB with 96 SP's,one is 640MB with 96 SP's and finally the 8800GTS 512 which has 128 SP's OvrClkr a b à CPUs September 10, 2009 2:54:10 PM True, but even if they do have the same amount of SP's there are still other factors to consider.... The specs on both cards are not identical, here is an example : http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-8800-gts-51... http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gts-250,217... You can say that they are based off the same architecture, but they do not perform the same in any way..... Maziar a b Î Nvidia a b à CPUs September 10, 2009 4:39:23 PM Yup i agree,i was just saying they have 128 SP's because number of stream processors are very important but there are other important factors like Memory clock etc(as u said though ) OvrClkr a b à CPUs September 10, 2009 5:06:32 PM Hopefully the new 3XX series won't follow in the same direction..... Would be nice to see NEW hardware......
