Try to find the latest reviews for GTX 260 Core216 vs HD4870 1GB gaming @ 2400x1600 or something. Somebody got links ? I need to dig a lot for that since I don't keep tab on reviews.

My goodness this 2400 X 1600 resolution massive -- try CRYSIS @ this resolution :twisted:

Yup, That's massive. For most high end users HD resolution should suffice.
Most of the people just play games among 800*600 - 1600*1050 resolutions & those who can afford a screen that supports this kind of massive resolution ie 2400*1600 would definitely buy 2x GTX 295 :p

i think both of 'em are head to head!!!!!!!
you are right, the GTX260 and HD4870 1GB are actually head to head.

I've seen reviews where 4GB or 6GB RAM are used, and there, with Catalyst 9.5 and the latest GeForce, GTX260 = HD4870 1GB, and GTX275 = HD4890, but HD4890 OC(900MHz core and 1GHz memory) is better than stock GTX275 all the time.

++++ wat can I get for upto 1500 ( that's the amount I'll get by selling my current Altec m251:-D- also suggest if that's a good price:confused:)


Please respond if that's a good price ?? it's a 5.1 system almost 4 years old, and I don't like the sub much the diaphram starts craking @ slightest bass increase

GTX 260 with 55nm on the new forceware driver kicks the HD 4870 1Gb thats means out 10 games reviewed 6 games won by GTX 260 with the core clock of 625/1100 . But default core clock its head to head .

But GTX 260 55nm is Good overclocker ,, & for GTX 275 = GTX 260 its almost same as GTX 260 in all the ways only core clock & memory speed differs thats y many of them go for GTX 285 .

& HD 4870 = HD 4890 same but the coreclock is higher

If u see many reviews HD 4870 1Gb with HD 4890 1Gb only with 10FPS it differs , like what GTX 260 & gtx 275 same 10FPS differs .


Its a marketing technique of ATI & Nvidia :mrgreen:

GTX 260 with the core clock of 625/1100
see that's where you go wayyy wrong. Most of the low cost GTX260's(priced below HD4870 1GB) in India have the default 576MHz core and 999MHz memory, and at that speed, the HD4870 1GB is much better than GTX260. And BTW, with the clocks u mentioned, GTX260's power consumption shoots up above HD4870 1GB too.

The PALIT GTX 260 sonic comes with 625/1100 , also less power than HD 4870 1GB not too less only 10

i bought this palit GTX 260 sonic

No, HD4890 is HD4870 1GB, but with 3 million extra transistors, which affects performance barely, on the other hand the shader count is same leading to performance difference due to only higher clocks between the cards, a HD4870 1GB is therefore a better buy due to lower cost and can be OC'ed.

GTX275 is not GTX260, GTX260 has 24 less shaders than GTX275, consider that a 9800GT and 9800GTX+ is miles apart due to only 16 shader difference GTX275 is considerably faster than GTX260, which not even an OC could make up. Hence GTX275>>>GTX260, HD4890>HD4870 1GB.

Consider that GTX275 price is cheaper or equal to HD4890, and a stock GTX275 beats it in majority of games, a GTX275 is always a better buy, remember GTX275 can also be OC'ed, so OC or nonOC GTX275 is faster than HD4890, it also comes with PhysX(DX 10.1 is pretty much dead with the introduction of DX11 this year, so going for ATI is useless, PhysX on the other hand is here to stay).

Shaders GTX 260 & GTX 275 has same SP216 , only RAM differs and core clock , i bought my palit GTX 260 sonic when i ask the distributor GTX 275 is less in stock no new stock they gona stop GTX 275 , GTX 280 already stopped in palit ,, they said they also have GTX 295 3 peices stock , palit dint send GTX 295 further heard that they gona make sonic on 295 .

Many specification is almost equal with GTX 260 & GTX 275 ..

Sorry to say this but you're completely unaware of GTX275 specs. Take a look- http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-275-review-test/2

GTX 275=240 shaders, GTX260(C-216)=216 Shaders
--> Difference=24 Shaders.

Not to mention clock(core+shader+memory) differences.

But PALIT has only SP216 for GTX 275 ,???


Check theitwares
itwares is probably the worst indian hardware site, all their infos are totally messed up, its best to check techshop.in, atleast their infos are correct(although prices are higher).

There is no GTX275 sp216, no board partner has the rights or technology to modify GPU chips supplied by nVidia.

But No reviews still on PALIT GTX 275
