Processor
Graphics processor *
Also known as a graphics processing unit (GPU), this is a specialized electronic circuit designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display. GPUs are used in embedded systems, mobile phones, personal computers, workstations, and game consoles. Modern GPUs are very efficient at manipulating computer graphics.
GeForce GTS 250
Maximum resolution *
The maximum number of pixels that can be displayed in the image. It is usually quoted as width × height,: for example, "1024 × 768" means the width is 1024 pixels and the height is 768 pixels.
2560 x 1600 pixels
Processor frequency *
The clock rate is the fundamental rate in cycles per second (measured in hertz) at which a computer performs its most basic operations such as adding two numbers. There are more factors, like internal memory size, that influence a computer's actual response time.
765 MHz
Memory
Discrete graphics adapter memory *
1 GB
Graphics adapter memory type *
The type of memory used by the video card. Often a combination of dedicated memory (Video RAM or VRAM) and dynamic system memory is used. UMA stands for Unified Memory Architecture, and is a computer memory architecture that allows the graphics processing unit to share system memory. Other abreviations: RAM = Random Access Memory, SDRAM = synchronous dynamic RAM, DDR = double-data-rate.
GDDR3
Memory bus *
Hardware and software that connects the main memory to the memory controller in computer systems. Originally, general-purpose buses like VMEbus and the S-100 bus were used, but to reduce latency, modern memory buses are designed to connect directly to DRAM chips, and thus are designed by chip standards bodies such as JEDEC.
256 bit
Memory clock speed
The frequency at which the memory (e.g. RAM) runs.
2200 MHz
Ports & interfaces
Interface type *
PCI Express 2.0
VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity *
Number of VGA (D-Sub) ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. The VGA (D-Sub) connector is a 15 pin connector between a computer and a monitor. It was first introduced in 1987 by IBM.
1
DVI port
Digital Visual Interface (DVI) is a video display interface to connect a video source to a display device, such as a computer monitor.
1
Performance
DirectX version *
DirectX is a collection of APIs (application programming interfaces) for easily handling tasks related to game programming on the Microsoft Windows operating system.
10.0
OpenGL version *
OpenGL (Open Graphics Library) is a specification defining a cross-language cross-platform API for writing applications that produce 3D computer graphics (and 2D computer graphics as well). The interface consists of over 250 different function calls which can be used to draw complex three-dimensional scenes from simple primitives.
2.1
Dual Link DVI *
A dual-link DVI interface sends data over both of the DVI links to the monitor, and this is how higher resolutions are achieved. With dual-link DVI, a resolution of 2048 x 1536 is possible.
Yes
Design
Cooling type *
The method used to cool the device or to cool the air around the device.
Active
Other features
HDMI
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a compact audio/video interface for transferring uncompressed video data and compressed/uncompressed digital audio data from a HDMI-compliant device ("the source device") to a compatible computer monitor, video projector, digital television, or digital audio device. HDMI is a digital replacement for existing analog video standards.

We know about the GTS 250; its nothing more than a rebranded 9800 GTX+. While this is annoying to a degree for the less experienced users who tend not to keep up with whats happening, if you are looking for something that is to be a well known con...
Bottom line Up until our last few tests there wasnt anything too exciting about the card. Sure, the card performed like we thought it would in the numbers game, but upon looking at the temperature of the card along with the power usage, it was simply amazing t...

If longevity is any measure of success, Gigabyte's budget-busting GV-250 OC-1GI board is the daddy. After all, the GeForce GTS 250 GPU found at its heart card can trace its roots right back to the GeForce 8800 GT circa late 2007.OK, it's gone through a...

Bottom line The GPU that underpins this board was once one of the very best. It still offers many decent features including that 256-bit bus. But there's only so much you can do with a die shrink and a rebranding. Frankly, the game is up for the GeForce GTS 250 ch...

Verdict: An aging GPU is put to good use. This card packs plenty of graphical power into a small and cool package. The GV-N250ZL-1GI uses Nvidias GeForce GTS 250 chipset, which launched a few months ago to very little fanfare. This is because its...
