New GTX 260 didn't get AIBs hot under the collar

Whilst the 216 stream processor part has increased performance to the tune of 5 to 8%, this was not as much as AIBs or, indeed, end-users were hoping for.

 

It is claimed then that the upcoming 55nm refresh of the GTX 280, expected to launch before the turn of the year, is hoped to be a real turning point in NVIDIA's battle against the resurgent AMD.

 

It is currently believed that a 55nm refresh of the current GTX 280, known as the GTX 280 +, will take the performance crown back from AMD's HD 4870 X2 offering.

 

However, on that all important price-to-performance ratio, AMD obviously has something up its sleeve.
