    Headlines - GeForce GTX 260 to the rescue?

    With GTX 280 pricing hovering over £400, can the £260-priced GTX 260 provide some semblance of value?

    Sorry Tarinder, but what is the point of this news article? Shouldn't this just be the last page of the 280 review if at all? There's no review or new information here.

    Because it would simply be swallowed up by the 7,500 words in that review. Not everyone will bother looking or even noticing GTX 260.

    I've somewhat criticised the GTX 280 with respect to pricing, but GTX 260 deserves a particular mention.

    I've added a purchase link to this piece.

    Oh are you saying that it's actually been released for purchase (a week ahead of schedule)? That would be newsworthy.

    I'm in the process of verifying whether a couple of websites that claim to have stock, actually do.

    I think thats the info everyone is waiting for

    The articles state that the 260 is to be around 70%-75% what the 280 is. The 280 is about 40% faster than the 9800GTX so in theory we are looking at around a 10% improvement, i think the increased Vram size may give it a bit more of an edge with higher resolutions though.

    The GTX 260 certainly does resemble an affordable high performance card, especially when in comparison to its big brother, its a shame the rest of my PC isn't up to par :S
