More Nvidia GTX 285 Information Surfaces
According to Expreview, The 55nm GTX280 features a brand-new PCB design and enhanced default frequency. Besides, it?s been given a new brand ? GeForce GTX285.
Adopting P891 as reference design, GeForce GTX285 remains 10.5? 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 GTX280?s Maximum Graphics Card Power is 236W, and it requires a 6-pin and a 8-pin PEG Power Connectors. However, GeForce GTX285?s 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 cards? price war. Dual-GPU GeForce GTX295 is expected to regain the crown of performance. All of these will happen in January 2009.
