Rumour has it that NVIDIA will be launching a new graphics card tomorrow, to coincide with the official opening of the CeBIT technology show.

Well, here is that card, and it's a GeForce GTS 250 1GB.

Gigabyte was ahead of the curve in having its stand ready for tomorrow's launch, so we thought it only fair to grab a few shots of the new mid-range card.

Using a single six-pin PCIe connector and toting HDMI, VGA, and DVI on the back, it's the replacement for the aging GeForce 9800 GTX+, according to the rumour mill.


Gigabyte differentiates its card from the norm by slapping a big Zalman cooler on top, but expect to hear a lot more about it in the very near future.

If they are going to put a cooler that big on it; which blocks using the next pcie slot on your motherboard, they might as well make the backing plate cover 2 slots as well. That way they could add on more connection options on the back plate or even an exhaust vent to vent some of the heat out of the case and not for it to be blown down into the case.

do you mean replacement or a rename?

I wouldnt be too surprised if they overclocked the balls off the 9800GTX+ and called it the GTS 250 :P
i would be surprised if they bothered overclocking its balls all that much, cant wait to see what the canned reviews make of it, should be a lesson in skirting
