But Nvidia has another card up its sleeve, it seems, with the company rumored to be working on an updated version of the GTX 260 to try and put the brakes on AMD’s HD 4870. This card isn’t expected to feature the 55nm refresh of Nvidia’s GT200 GPU, but will instead beef up the amount of Shader Processors from 192 to 216.
Comparatively, Nvidia’s top-end GeForce GTX 280 contains a total of 240 stream processors. Expreview claims the revamped GTX 260 card should arrive in mid-September, with all other specs expected to remain the same.
