Gtx 260....

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I ordered a evga gtx 260 216 a few days ago to go along with my new build, today I noticed that the 55nm version is on sale at newegg. I have never Overclocked a video card and probably wont start, so will I lose out on any performance since mine will be 65nm compared to the 55?

I dont think so mate....might be some degrees hotter than the 55nm one but nothing to do with performance IMO.

No you won't lose anything. the only difference between the two is the 55nm is a die shrink of the 65nm. Thus the chip is smaller and runs cooler, and can generally be oc'd a little further. At the same speeds they should perform the same.

Thanks for the replies guys, I was about to kick myself for gettin the 65nm and not knowing 55nm was so close to coming out.

Nah.


the 55nm will give you slightly better temperatures. I wouldn't cry about a few degrees.


Okay, my GTX 260 core 216 was at stock. OC'ed now to 730 core clock, 1200 memory clock on 50% fan speed.
I get the same fps in every game.
OC'ing your card will probably give you bigger numbers but myself I don't visually notice any difference in gaming..

but some people want a bigger e-penor so they strive for every extra digit, therefore getting rid of their 65nm for 55nm just to overclock their card an extra 20 or 30Mhz

I disagree. The jump between 65 and 55nm is more than just a hew mhz. intel jumped the SAME proc from 45 to 32nm and say a 70% increase in processing power with a 60% drop in power consumption and heat

I you are an overclock lover, then yes 55nm is much better. I have the 216 and my room mate has the 55nm version. We have some comp specs and he's able to get his to 790mhz... mine will only do 709 before artifacting

The 55nm competes with the gtx 280







GTX 260 55nm is neck and neck with the GTX 280 in every test, and sometimes better:

unless you can post the source from that and more then one review im going to call BS. there is no way there is that much of a jump.

i believe that was the factory extreme overclocked version. which is why it's neck to neck with a stock GTX 280.
