Its basically a repackaged 9800 GTX, which is basically a repackaged 8800 class card.

GTS 250 has 128 stream processors like 9800GTX/8800GTX

or the 8800GTS G92 cards.
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.

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.....

Well the performance difference isn't much but yes it uses less power,for under $120 it looks a good choice

Anything wrong with having a GTS 250?
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+.

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......

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

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 :)  )

Hopefully the new 3XX series won't follow in the same direction..... Would be nice to see NEW hardware......
