Nvidia-exclusive manufacturer EVGA has welcomed the retail release of the GeForce GTX 260 by beginning to ship no less than four models based on the GT200 baby card. All built around Nvidia's reference design, the new cards have beefy, dual-slot cooling systems, two PCIe 6-pin connectors, two DVI ports and more interesting things like 448-bit memory interfaces, 192 Processing Cores and 896 MB of GDDR3 memory.
As you'd expect, EVGA has played around with some of the cards' clocks with the resulting line-up including, first the stock GeForce GTX 260, and the Superclocked, Super Superclocked (SSC) and FTW (For Teh Win) Editions.
The 'regular' GTX 260 has GPU, shader and memory frequencies of 576, 1242 and 2000 MHz respectively while the SC and SSC version reach 602/1296/2052 MHz and 626/1350/2106 MHz. Last, but not least, the fastest GTX 260 in EVGA's offer, the FTW Edition is a card that bears the number of the beast - 666, this being the GPU clock. The card's shader and memory are set to 1404 and 2214 MHZ respectively.
The 'normal' GeForce GTX 260 can now be bought for $399.99, the SC for $409.99 and the SSC for $419.99. The FTW Edition costs $459.99.
