Nvidia's GeForce GTX 275 Specs Revealed

Although the specifications were not officially announced, details regarding the upcoming GeForce GTX 275 have surfaced.

There's nothing juicer than a good rumor, especially when gamers are looking for quality, performance, and value. There's certainly a lot of talk about Nvidia and ATI GPUs lately, with leaked specs, tasty rumors and thorough speculations circling the industry every day. However, when evidence presents itself without pictures or proof from official sources, sometimes information can be nothing more than a little hoopla and high hopes.

Fudzilla, claims that it scored a few details regarding the upcoming GeForce GTX 275. The site reports that the GTX 275 actually looks like a GTX 295 with a higher clock. By comparison, the GTX 275, featuring a 55nm GT200 GPU, clocks in at 633 MHz with a 1164 MHz memory clock; the GTX 295 has a core clock speed of 576 MHz and a memory clock of 999 MHz. However, both cards provide a 448-bit memory interface and uses GDDR3 memory. Additionally, the GTX 275 will share a trait with the GeForce GTX 285 as well, both offering 240 shaders.

Sporting a single GPU, the GeForce GTX 275 will be a dual-slot card with the usual CUDA, PhysX, and 3-way SLI support, selling for $249 when it ships during the second week of April. For the price, the card will certainly offer an impressive amount of power although the Radeon HD 4890, set to hit shelves around the same time, will give it a run for its money. With a core clock of 850 MHz and 1 GB of GDDR5 memory, the meatier ATI offering will more than likely be the dominant card if the price isn't set too high.

Still, until Nvidia dishes out the official info or the GeForce GTX 275 actually surface, fans will just have to suffice with supposed facts and rumors.

    275>295?
    watch as people say they don't want a 275 because the 295 is better.

    I agree. I bet the 4890 is going to be stronger then the 275, not being a fanboy here, im planning to get a GTX 260 SSC, but if the 4890 comes out in time im going to get it, or the GTX 275, whichever is better.

    I think they mean it looks like the same gpu used in the GTX295, not that it is the same card. They later say that it is a single gpu, dual slot card. Thus, it seams to be half of a GTX295, making it more powerful than the GTX260 216, but weaker than the GTX285. How it stacks against the the GTX280 would be hard to tell, as the GTX280 would have the same amount of shading power, but a lower clock with a better memory interface. My guess, seeing as the memory interface isn't significantly different (448 versus 512), would be it would outperform the GTX280 by just a hair. However, if someone were to finally get GDDR5 running on an nVidia card, who knows what the results would be?

    Dreasconse275>295?watch as people say they don't want a 275 because the 295 is better.Isn't the 295 a dual GPU and the 275 a single GPU? I think that is the difference. The 295 will perform better. I think you are confusing the 295 with 285. Sounds like the 275>285

    I hate that both companies have 349 cards each, all within 10% performance of one another… Like let’s put some of this cash into making better cards already instead having 13 price lvl’s.

    Example:
    ATI has a 4870x2, 4870, 4850… good enough already! Ati should crush the 4870x2 and then the 4870 will be the “low” end as they can discontinue the 4850. We just don’t need 23423423424 cards from one company.
    (Perhaps 4 price lvl’s is ideal??)

    It's because your still 2 gens in give it for the next gen of cards to surface then it might be worth to upgrade.

    Well if nvidia is smart 260

    ?? wth the rest of my comment is gone lol well it's priced between a 260 and 285 so if performance falls between that it's all coo
