Even though ATI has launched its next generation 58XX series card, this Gigabyte GTX 260 SOC is really a card that you must have a look at when you are in for a new graphics card. Budget wise it won't leave a hole in your wallet. (~€170). Yet...

The 260 GTX chip pushed to its limit It’s easy to be seduced by the latest and greatest graphics cards, but you can sometimes find excellent deals in older-generation cards that can still keep up with today’s shader-heavy PC games....

Gigabyte GV-N26SO (GeForce GTX 260 SuperOverclock) 896MB is no less interesting. It manages to catch up and outperform the more expensive GTX 275, operating at nominal frequencies. Certainly...

Gigabyte has launched the fastest ever GTX 260 Core 216 video card. With a relatively low cost of entry and a high level of performance that rivals the fastest DirectX10 cards, it's a bang for the buck leader!...

Gigabyte has created a monster with the GV-N26SO-896I videocard. If you only looked at the performance graphs, you might have difficulty believing that this videocard was actually a Geforce GTX 260 videocard. In most of PCSTATS benchmark testing,...

If you want to differentiate yourself in the crowded and competitive video card market, you have two ways to do it. One way is to offer a card with a non-stock design, using things such as different coolers or a new PCB design. The other way is to...

The sizable overclock on the GTX 260 Super Overclock kept the card one step ahead of the most of the GTX 260 competition. Even when the first heavily overclocked GTX 260 video cards appeared, they -- for the most part -- offered good bang for your...

When I first received this card, I wasn't that impressed... without even touching it. After all, this is a year-old card that has simply been overclocked. What's there to get excited about? In this case, excited isn't the proper word to use,...

The Gigabyte SuperOverclock GTX 260 offers an average of 10~20% consistent performance gain in all of our tests. At clockspeed of at 680MHz, 1466 MHz, and 2350 MHz (core/shader/memory), it is one of the highest factory overclock GTX 260 we have seen....

With AMD having just released its ATI Radeon HD 5870 and Nvidia gearing up for its next-gen GPUs, Gigabyte is a little late to market with a turbo-charged GTX 260. As such, our excitement is somewhat tempered, but not flushed. After all, this is still...

I’m of two minds on the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX260 Core 216 Super Overclocked card. On the one hand the card clearly outperforms the other GeForce GTX 260s on the market and with the latest driver outperforms some GTX275s. The GIGABYTE card has some...

We mentioned at the beginning of this review that – be it a processor family or GPU series- as an architecture matures and manufacturers get a better handle on what it is capable of, they are able to push things to new heights. Gigabyte did just...

International Review By Digitale-Generation on 86

Die GV-N260SO-896I ist eine echte Empfehlung. Die Karte offenbart keine Schwäche – im Gegenteil. Durch das starke Overclocking bekommt man hier für den schlanken Preis der GTX 260 teilweise die gleiche Leistung wie bei einem...

Selvom kortet ikke er et af de nyeste på markedet, passer det meget godt ind til de brugere, der ikke har råd til de nyeste af slagsen. Hvorfor? Fordi det prismæssigt ikke er vildt dyrt, og man får meget ydelse for pengene. Det er...
