EVGA’s GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 is the new version of the GeForce GTX 260. This version adds 24 shader processors to the existing 192 (192+24=216).
The Geforce GTX 260 core 216 is in fact a GeForce GTX 280, with a small chunk of memory missing, and one shader cluster with 24 shader cores disabled. Other then that, there is just no difference whatsoever.
So in general the Core 216 edition cards offer a small small step in performance over the regular GTX 260 products, but the faster clocked Core 216 products, darn it, that’s where value starts kicking in for sure.
