Default Re: When did the 250's come out?

I think alot of people misunderstand that there really wouldnt be a performance advantage to a GT200 type card in the G92 sector. Nvidia could produce a brand new PCB ((did that for GTS 250)), Go down to 55 NM ((G92 is 55 NM)). Lower its power requirements ((Did that for GTS 250)) and still wouldnt have any better performance. Since NVidia's shader/TMU units are tied as well as its ROP/Memory Controller)). Cutting down the design to follow the GT200's setup for ROP/Shader/TMU they'd end up with a part that'd perform virtually identical. Or in some cases worse. Keep in mind the GTX 260 has less texturing performance than a G92.
