Read the GPU specs available on NVIDIA's website. – karlphillip Oct 9 '10 at 0:24

You can Download the SDK and run deviceQuery

The GTS 250 has 16 SMs and 8 cores per SM for a total of 128 CUDA cores. This wikipedia page has core counts for all GeForce devices. For GT200 series processors dividing the number of cores by 8 gives you the number of SMs.
