    Reviews - Inno3D GeForce GTX 260 FreezerX2: the budget high-end card?

    Coming in with an etail price of below £140, Inno3D's customised GeForce GTX 260 seems like a winner? Is it?

    According to comments left on Ebuyer, it would seem to have 192 SPs...Not 216?

    The card that we received from Inno3D and is pictured in this review did indeed have 216 stream processors.

    We'll look into the Ebuyer listing and report back.

    Re: Reviews - Inno3D GeForce GTX 260 FreezerX2: the budget high-end card?

    When this card was first launched it was only available in the 216sp version. I don't know about the ebuyer stock but I recently bought an "unbranded" GTX260 from aria (on daily special for £115!) and it turned out to be an inno3D FreezerX2, but in 192sp flavour - given the price of the ebuyer model I suspect it may well be the same story...

    I can confirm though that the card is incredibly cool and quiet, and has so far been an excellent performer

    Yup, for about £140, it can even match or beat a 4890 at times - which is about 190 quid
    Thinking of getting one - not enough of a HC gamer for the XF though.

    I too bought one of these and the box says 192sp and GPU-Z confirms this

    Thumbs up Re: Reviews - Inno3D GeForce GTX 260 FreezerX2: the budget high-end card?

    I like the look of this 260. Would probably recommend it in future.

    But I recently went for a GTX 285 simply because of the price and a custom fan:

    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=GX-106-GW
    £225 isnt a bad price for something thats usually £300.

    I've not installed it yet due to a million delays. Also 6GB for a free game takes a while to download!
