Re: NVIDIA says it will win back performance leadership this year
Last I heard, for the GTX 280 it is going to be upped to 648 on the core with a 1620 shader clock. That will certainly help.
GTX 260 SLi or a card based on it, isn't beating the X2 unless it's released at the above clocks or greater. IMO something like 675-690 with a 1620 shader clock would make it very close, if not give them the win.
I've been up to 1580 on the shaders with this card @ a high core clock and it did help quite a bit.
