It really does seem weird to be looking at models which are considered quite old now. The funny thing is that while the GTS 250 might have been out for a while, it's still a very current model. A few years ago this wouldn't have been much of a surprise, but with the recent releases of so many cards over the past 18 months it just seems funny that the GTS 250 is still a very current model.
Today we'll be looking at a card from Inno3D and like most companies they've really been able to mix it up because of the age of the card. The biggest advantage to working with cards that have been around for a while now is that there are plenty of options when it comes to cooling. We also find that a lot of companies know where they're at when it comes to overclocking, so if they choose to go down that path a good few MHz can be extracted out of the core and memory.
We won't be doing anything out of the ordinary today when it comes to the Inno3D GTS 250. Before we have a closer look at the card and its cooling let's find out what's going on in the package department and if Inno3D can do something that helps the company stand out from the pack.
