EVGA first to combine graphics, physics GPUs

EVGA has released a new hybrid card, the Hybrid GTX 275 Co-op PhysX, which uses NVIDIA's GTX 275 and GTS 250 GPUs on the same card. The two split tasks accordingly, with the GTX 275 taking care of the graphics while the GTS 250 does PhysX computing for physics in games like Batman: Arkham Asylum (included in the box) or Mirror's Edge. There is 1.28GB of combined memory while the GTS 250 and GTX 275 chips run at 633MHz and 738MHz, respectively. Total memory bandwidth tops out at 179.8GBps.

The hybrid card uses a PCIe 2.0 bus, while two DVI-I connections provide video output from the GTX 275. The card is also SLI capable and can mate with another identical card for faster video, though whether both GTS 250s are used isn't specified. It can support display refresh rates as high as 240Hz and can reproduce a maximum analog resolution of 2048x1536, or 2560x1600 when fully digital.

The EVGA Hybrid GTX 275 Co-op PhysX card is available now and costs $350.
