more expensive than 260 gtx which is around $380-440 and a little bit faster than the 4870 for $330-360? What does this accomplish?

The same thing that the 9800GTX+ accomplished.


You can probably expect the new card to be called the GTX 260+ or something similar.

Well short of an entirely new architecture (which is undoubtedly on the way but not in '08) its pretty much all Nvidia can do right now.

They might be better served taking a leaf out of ATI's book by using clock speed to differentiate products rather than cutting bits of the silicon off. Limiting the number of shaders and memory bus has previously hampered most of their more mainstream products, whereas 50 - 100 Mhz off the clock speed (as is the case with ATI's 4870/4850) would only result in near linear performance loss. Of course that would probably require better yields than they are getting.

Overall this is probably the best Nvidia can do in the short term.

i must say the new gtx 260+ or 216 core is pretty attractive these days, especially with 4870's in Australia going up to about $450 sometimes even for a 512mb card. Even the X2 is sometimes verging on $900. They used to be $350  and $700 respectively Sad and with the 180 driver fallout 3 looks awesome but that new hd pack was rather dissapointing, all it did was add some etra rocks around the bare areas
