It is available immediately for US$249.

Nvidia's GeForce GTX 275 GPU is based on its GT200 architecture and features 240 processor cores operating at 1404MHz, 80 texture processing units, a 448bit memory interface, and an 896MB framebuffer. GeForce GTX 275-based graphics cards will have a price range of US$229-249, noted Nvidia.

The GeForce GTX 275 supports Nvidia PhysX technology for interactive gaming experiences, Nvidia Cuda for accelerated desktop applications, and Nvidia 3D Vision for stereoscopic gaming.

The GeForce GTX 275 will be available globally on or before April 14, 2009. Some regions are available now; other regions are available for pre-order.
