Heh... I missed this list on wednesday... I notice the GTS 250 reviews are out. :)

Looks like it gets a slight PCB shrink, and better power consumption which also results in only requiring a single 6 pin PCIe on some of the cards.

Pretty much what we expected though.... it's a slightly reworked 9800GTX+ with the only real news being a repositioning on the pricing scale.
ASUS ROG Strix Z370-G Gaming (WiFi AC) / i7 8700K / 2X 8G XPG Spectrix D40 (3000) / XFX XTR 750 / ASUS Strix GTX 1070ti
AZZA Titan 240 / Custom WC / Intel 730 Series 480GB SSD / Intel 760p 512GB NVMe / Seagate Barracuda 1TB / ASUS SWIFT PG279Q

Asrock AM1H-ITX / AM1 Athlon 5350 / 1X4G Gskill PC3-14900 / Intel 6235 Wi-Fi / 90W Targus Power Brick / Uncased 256GB Sandisk Z400S SSD / Mini-Box M350 / 24" Westinghouse L2410NM

Thanks Mac
