NVIDIA's 216 Shader Processor endowed GTX 260 part, is coming, and we reported on some expected performance expectations, late last week.

 

TechConnect Magazine, with compliments of donanimhaber.com, has reported on a factory overclocked SKU that, ZOTAC, is busy readying for release.

ZOTAC's GeForce GTX 260 AMP! 2 Edition SKU should ship with clocks of 650 MHz and 1998 MHz on the GPU and GDDR3 memory, respectively. Notably, it is cited that the memory clock speed is actually 200 MHz slower than ZOTAC's original GTX 260 AMP! Edition part.

 

Pricing is unknown at the time of going to press, yet, expect release prior to the close of September.

 

In the meantime, DIGITIMES reports on concerns coming from NVIDIA AIBs about a possible overstock situation, being caused by the refreshed GTX 260 part.

 

With pricing on the 216 Shader Processor part being similar, it is claimed, to the current GTX 260 iteration, a suggested performance boost of between 5 and 10%, is expected to put the current GTX 260 solutions on unfamiliar ground.
