Gigabyte Geforce GTX 260 Super OverClock Video Card Review
 
We have seen many factory-overclocked cards from different vendors, but most of these cards just push the GPU/MEM clocks using reference design hardware. Once in a while, a cards pop up like this Gigabyte SOC card which deviates from the group and packs a whole lot more punch then what other vendors can offer.

And another review from empty head :)

Nice one !!!

Nice review, those are good numbers. I'm glad you actually mentioned that a 4890 is better bang for your buck. Most review sites will never do that. Its the main reason I picked up a 4870 over a 260 GTX, $80 less (at the time) for the same or better performance.

BTW, Madshrimps is the first site I visit every morning for the past 3 years. Keep up the good work.

Hey KMM, welcome to the forums :hello: , thank you for your feedback.

Some people prefer NVIDIA hardware , either for driver support in other OS (linux) or CUDA, in such cases this GTX 260 offers a good deal.
if however you run Windows and don't care about CUDA or what brand/make your VGA card is, then 4890 will offer you better performance for the buck. Now all we needs is HD 4890 SOC edition, but I think our prayers are answered with HD 5830 set to be released soon, DX11 features, cheaper than 4890, same/higher performance :)

I agree. Ya that 5830 sounds exciting, can't wait to find out more about it.

early suggested launch price is a bit over the top for me, 239 dollars... it has to be darn good then !!

239 U.S. dollars = 165.661607 Euros
:-)

if only it would be that simple to calculate the real euro price :)

since HD 5850 is priced at €220-230 it would be quite impossible for HD 5830 to be more expensive or priced the same;)
