    I Just got an eVGA GTX 260SC From Microcenter (Local Store),,,,Anyways The part number is P/N:896-P3-1257-AR. Which is suposed to be the 55nm variant. But GPU-Z.0.3.1 reports it as 65nm rev.B1 Can Anybody tell Me If I Have The Right Card....... Otherwise I'll Be Pi...d Of:bang:

    How many streaming processors does it have, the 55nm variant has 216, where as the 65nm varient has 192. You can find out by using GPU-Z and looking at the shader value.

    As you can see for my 8800GTS 640Mb I have 96 SP. Kindest regards

    Thats a mistake in GPU-Z, do you have the latest version? I suspect your ok as you have 216 SP.

    Thats false 65nm have 192 or 216sp and the 55nm have 216sp only

    anyways heres my old GTX260 65nm 216sp

    If i remember good the core 216 came before 55nm showed up....Man i'm so confused now :bang::bang::bang:

    i hope it's just a gpu-z mistake cause i waited so long just to get a 55nm version

    why the 65nm runs cooler as the new 55nm heatsink is missing some copper pipes so...yeh lol

    but yeh your using windows 7 maby thats why it thinks its a 65nm?

    Core 216's were out before the 55nm variants.

    Anyone with the 55nm eVGA card would need to clarify. If you're hell bent on having a 55nm card though, take it back.

    In that case I stand corrected appologies :) interesting his release date is June 16th 2008 which would mean he would have a 65nm varient as I'm sure the 55nm came out after.

    yes same date as my 65nm so i would think also he has a 65nm.

    i believe GPU-z cannot read the actual GPU size. it shows what it thinks it is, but when the 9800GTX+ came out, it showed up as a 65nm 9800GTX.

    its a simple limitation of GPU-z. you have the 55nm card, if you got the model that everyone said was the 55nm.

    Just forget about it but i'v had a looky and it seems most, if not all peoples Gpuz show 65nm even if they have a 55nm.

    but heres how it goes so i'v heard

    G200-100-A2 = 192
    G200-103-A2 = 216
    G200-103-B2 = 55nm 216

    GTX285 uses G200-350 rev B3 chips
    GTX295 uses G200-400 rev B3 chips
    GTX260 uses G200-103 rev B2 chips

    but so i'v seen if you have a B2 chip it reports B1 in gpuz.

    GPU-z needs an update more than likely.

    Ahhh so that's what happened to all those 65nm GPUs that were missing out of their boxes. They got put in 55nm boxes. haven't you guys been noticing the posts about people getting 55nm GPUs when they bought a 65nm one?

    I would love to see a picture of the box.

    Hit the nail on the head.

    GPU-z is reporting 65nm for all 55nm cards, don't worry aparicio1

    don't be so quick to jump to conclusions when it could be just a software limitation of gpu-z at this point. is there any other means of checking the card? perhaps part numbers printed on the chips, or on the pcb?
