Default DUH! News of today: GTX 275 will be rebranded GTX 260 or GTX 280, not a brand new

The official specs are 240 'cores', and clocks are at 633/1404/1134MHz for GPU, processor and memory respectively. Yawn. GDDR3 of course, no GDDR5 now or until the GT300 cores, the GT200 can't do it, but that is old news. Things are going to suck for NV on a die area board layers, and therefore cost for the rest of the year.

So, what is the sleazy part? Where to begin, where to begin. The first one is that there is no GT275 card or ASIC, in fact, as of CeBIT, the Nvidia partners didn't know it existed, mainly because it didn't. This 'planned' card wasn't planned, and is what you call a reaction. Take a sticker, slap it on an existing card, and blow different fuses.

I think everybody knows that the GTX 275 won't be a new card, it's name suggests that it sits in between GTX 260 and GTX 280; so either an underclocked GTX 280 or overclocked GTX 260, where's the "revelation" in that?

Another chronicle of the Nvidia Slasher pfffffff, that guy is tiresome...
Nvidia feels it doesn't need to release a whole new card... just up them clocks, a few more shaders or co and voila you got an equal or better performing card then ATI's latest newborn...

In fact who cares, as long as it's a good bang for the buck...
