The NVIDIA GTX 260 has been on the market for quite a while. It was followed by the GTX 260 with 216 shaders to combat ATI's offerings at that time. Now NVIDIA has given permission to their add in board partners to create custom PCB and cooling designs to further diversify their product range.

Palit's GTX 260 Sonic comes in the 216 shader flavor with higher clock speeds out of the box. The cooling system has also been completely revamped to employ Palit's Revolution cooler, yet still uses two slots in your motherboard. What is very uncommon for NVIDIA graphics card is the PCB color which can only be described as ATI red - yes it still looks good. Not only the PCB color has been changed, but large sections of the PCB layout have also been customized, most probably to reduce cost.
