Looks like another card I'll definitely be skipping though. GX2 for the lose.

This has moreto do with GPU PCBS than actual chip yields. My guess is the GTX 295 cards have fully functional core units. But the ROP/Memory partitions are disabled for PCB costs due to the 260 PCB costing alot less to make. I dont honestly believe the GTX 260 or GTX 280 is all that bandwith limited. Most of its extra performance comes from higher clocks/extra ROPS.
