Point of View GeForce GTX 260
|Product:||GeForce GTX 260 - 896MB|
|Manufacturer:||Point of View|
Roughly a week ago NVIDIA launched their GeForce GTX 200 series of products. We already published three separate articles on the GeForce GTX 280, but I figured it's time to have a look at the little brother of the 280, the GeForce GTX 260. A product that is priced much more aggressively than it's bigger brother at 399 USD.
Quite honestly it's the same GTX 280 GPU that amounts up-to 1400 million transistors. yet internally some computer power lovin' has been disabled.
But for that price cut you do need to realize, roughly 20-25% overall performance has been stripped away. Yet that still makes it a near flagship performing graphics card.
Today we'll look at such a GeForce GTX 260 from NVIDIA's board partner, Point of View. They will unleash this product onto the market at a suggested 319 EUR (399 USD) sales price and bundle it with a hot gaming title.
Obviously we'll have a chat about the differences between the GTX 260 and 280, strip her nekked and show you some photo's, but then it's time for the real deal. Gaming testing performance with the hottest gaming titles, some overclocking .. and our verdict.
Let's fire her up ..
In this article we review the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost OC WindForce 2X with that OC for a factory tweak and the Windforce indicating a silent yet powerful two fan cooling solution. The product is customized with a new PCB, cooling and a few tweaks, it has 2GB of memory with both that memory and the core base-clock slightly overclocked. An tasty product at an interesting price in the lower segment of the mainstream market.
ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini review
In this article we review the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini edition, a compact performance graphics card designed primarily for small form factor PCs with mini ITX motherboards. The dual-slot card measures just 17cm and features the NVIDIA GTX 670 GPU. ASUS has re-engineered the DirectCU cooler to fit small form factor cases. While shorter, it introduces a copper vapor chamber placed directly on top of the GPU for faster heat spreading and dispersal with 20% lower temperatures than reference GTX 670.

EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SC edition review
In this article we review the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SC edition review with that SC for superclocked. The product is fairly reference looking but does come with EVGA's own styled cooler, it has 2GB of memory with both that memory and the core baseclock slightly overclocked quite significant.
