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.
