My System Specs

Default GTX 295 and GTX 285 Very Close

Here they come. I think the GTX 285 will be the one I go for. Lower heat and power consumption (only two 6-pins) might allow me to use them in SLI on my 120.2 and actually put some watercooling on my mobo!

VR-Zone scored the first photo of the upcoming GeForce GTX 295 card slated for launch over at CES 2009. The GeForce GTX 295 is based on the sandwich design again like the 9800GX2 with two 55nm GT200 GPUs. As you can see, there are 2 DVI and 1 Display Port. As for the power connectors, it uses 8+6 pins so that gives you a clue how much power this card needs. The pricing is yet to be disclosed but card makers are speculating that Nvidia will price it competitively against AMD 4870X2 card this time.

55nm GTX285 Climbs to Head of Single-GPU Cards

We have looked into 55nm GeForce GTX260 VGA Card, now letís turn to 55nm GTX280. It features brand-new PCB design and enhanced default frequency. Besides, itís been given a new brand Ė GeForce GTX285.

Adopting P891 as reference design, GeForce GTX285 remains 10.5Ē length just as GTX280. And its cooler is dual-slot designed with dual DVI and S-Video output. The graphic memory carries on 1GB GDDR3, and its stream processors is 240. The frequency of GeForce GTX285 remains to be confirmed, but its performance can get up to 110% of GTX280.
We can regard GeForce GTX285 as GTX280 Overclocking Edition with less power consumption. GeForce GTX280ís Maximum Graphics Card Power is 236W, and it requires a 6-pin and a 8-pin PEG Power Connectors. However, GeForce GTX285ís power consumption has been reduced to 183W with only 2 6-pin PEG power connectors needed.
GeForce GTX285 with highest clock and lowest power consumption is undoubtedly the most powerful card in single-GPU cards, while new GeForce GTX260 arouses the most attention in middle and high-end cardsí price war. Dual-GPU GeForce GTX295 is expected to regain the crown of performance. All of these will happen in January 2009.
After unveiling details of NVIDIA new-line products, we will follow some news about AMDís plan to fight back, such as RV775XT. (Special thanks to one of our readers who provides information)
