Default NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 Coverage

Seeking to dethrone AMD's reigning Radeon HD 4870 X2, NVIDIA have finally released their latest and greatest dual-GPU graphics card, the GeForce GTX 295. This new model features two 55nm GT200b chips clocked at 576Mhz, a total of 480 stream processors clocked at 1242MHz, and a 448-bit 1792MB GDDR3 memory configuration clocked at 1998Mhz. Effectively, this card is like two 55nm GTX 260's but with GTX 280 stream processors.

Is it any good? Well here are some reviews for your reading pleasure:

XD...Now, I'd like to see what RV775 is going to be like, if and when it comes out. This is a very good shot back from Nvidia, and it will be more interesting to see what ATI's response is, considering that they have lost the performance crown today

The easiest way to counter this is Price Drop

Yeah, but then theyre just mimicking Nvidia. Now, they will either redesign their GPU's a bit, or shrink them to 40nm. If EVERYTHING else fails then they will proabbly go the way that Nvidia did

Out of curiosity, why did you quote me when your post was right after mine?
