ok.now i was doing some research on the web about how a gtx 260 would perform if overclocked to the clocks of a gtx 275.i dont know whether this article is legit but it seems that in some games a overclocked 260 is better than 275 and 280.is it true?the article is below.i know its in german but still one can get the picture.i just want to know whether it is really true or not? http://www.tweakpc.de/hardware/infos/grafik/nvidia_gefo...
Well if you look at side of the chart you'll see that the gtx 260 is at 700 mhz core vs the 275 633mhz which is stock. So a overclocked 260 will be close to a 275 but you can simply overclock a 275 to 700 mhz then you can see the gap that the extra 24 shaders provide
k.but the company is offering me a gtx 260 with 721mhz core 1200mhz memory clock with 1.8gb vram.processor clock at 1455mhz.now i can still overclock this further.so how will this card compare to a stock gtx 275?
More then likely you won't be able to overclock it any further, that already a pretty substantial overclock, so you won't be able to go much higher at all. But now i wouldn't pay for a factory overclock, as you could simply buy a stock 275 and overclock it yourself to get better performance
I've never seen a factory OC'd GTX 260 clocked that high. The highest one I have seen is a Gigabyte GTX 260 Super Overclock @ 680/1250/1584. Are you sure that's not a typo on their part (as in its clocked at 621 Mhz, which seems more in line with the memory and shader clocks you mentioned)?
its a special gtx 260 which i ordered from dell.its priced 50$ lower than the 275 so just wanted to know whether the difference was that substantial.after all i can still overclock this one till 825 now .from what i have heard the gtx 275,280,9800gx2 and this one fall in one class
