Default Re: NVIDIA's 55nm-based GTX 260 to get 1.5GB memory!

Woow if this is true, if so im glad I waited for the next card as GTA4 should fly with this card on hightextures

1. 280 and 260 cards memory on both sides, dont believe me, look again.
2. There are no spaces to add more memory, the backside to each memory chip has resistors(backside=opisite side of pcb from each memory chip), just where exactly are they going to put them?
