Performance Summary: The new GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 performed very well throughout out entire battery of benchmarks. Overall, the GTX 260 Core 216 outperformed the first-gen GeForce GTX 260 in ...
nVidia GeForce GTX 260 Review Edward ... Page 10 Verdict; ... However, this isn’t the end of it because nVidia also just released the GTX 260, which uses the same GT200 chip as GTX 280 but has a ...

The GeForce GTX 260 has eight of those clusters (called Texture/Processor Clusters or TPCs), bringing its total up to 192 SPs. The Core 216, as you can guess, has nine clusters or 216 SPs.
Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 excellent Bottom Line: Worth every penny, even with its single flaw, this case and power supply make a terrific enclosure for most general-purpose systems.
