Default NVIDIA GTX 295 Preview Comment Thread



Nvidia will soon be launching their GTX 295 and Hardware Canucks was fortunate enough to receive an early sample. As such, we ran it through a few tests to give you guys an idea of its performance before the official launch date in January.

I cannot stress this enough: this is a PREVIEW on beta hardware using beta drivers and we are limited in what can be shown. So, don't take this as a review.

You can find the article here: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 Video Card Preview

That looks sweet. The whole cooling thing looks awesome, as I'm not a big fan of all these weird shapes.

WOW!, I do have to say WOW! Nvidia sure really knows how to respond the ATI threat. Now lets see what ATI has up their sleeve. Oh, and great sneak peak SKY.

Holly mother of GOD!!.. Some of the games, the GTX 295 owns everything, its min FPS is larger than the avg FPS in some games.

For $500 it seems like a very good buy, but gonna wait and see in January for an official review of the card. Man'o'man SKY, thanks man.. I knew the card was launching this week but never expected a preview/review of the card until/after New Years, but you surprised us.. Thanks SKY
