A week or two ago NVIDIA announced it's latest graphics card positioned in the high-end region, called the GeForce GTX 275. The GeForce GTX 275 is a bit of a hybrid card in-between the GeForce GTX 260 and GeForce GTX 285.
The card is positioned directly against the new ATI Radeon HD 4890, yet is slightly cheaper. NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX 275 in an allergic reaction to team red's product to show and flex their rendering muscle. Now I know that some of you guys might frown a little about this GTX 275 release, but trust me when I say, this is a really interesting move.
The GeForce GTX 275 has the very same graphics processor as that GTX 285, yet the memory configuration of the GTX 260 (896 MB). Fitted on a new PCB and armed with a dandy cooler NVIDIA did another thing, they lowered prices significantly.
The GTX 275 is a card that is being introduced at a 239~249 USD price level. And though features and performance wise the product is not exactly the reinvention of the wheel, it definitely is a massive load of performance at a very fair price.

As such we figured to cease the moment and show you a couple of retail boards. For this article, a total of five GeForce GTX 275 graphics cards will be put to the test. We take the NVIDIA reference sample, two reference clocked products and two pre-overclocked products to see where we are at in terms of performance, cooling and features among the difference AIB/AIC partners.
We'll take the BFG GTX 275 OC edition, the Inno3D Overclock editions GTX 275, the Palit GTX 275 with custom cooling and the all reference based yet blue'ish colored GeForce GTX 275 from Sparkle.
We'll compare each AIB card at it's default clocks and compare it to the reference model. Of course, you are on guru3D.com .. we'll also overclock all cards tested today to investigate and observe what the limit of each product really is. First we start off with a quick introduction of the GTX 275, the differences, the new, and the not so new ....
