Galaxy Innovates GeForce GTX 285 High Performance Design

Pushing up the ante with innovation, Galaxy has come up with a new GeForce GTX 285 variant. No, it's not another cost-saving design, but rather the other way round: a mix of high-grade components. There are a few features which makes Galaxy's new card stand out:
  • A 4+2 phase digital PWM power design as opposed to the 6-phase analog design on reference NVIDIA PCB. The VRM controller supports the necessary interface for software voltage control
  • Redundant BIOS, two EEPROM chips on the PCB, possible BIOS profile switching feature
  • Arctic Cooling Accelero XTREME GTX cooling
The listed features put this card a few notches above even the reference design. Galaxy may announce this card in the weeks to come.

This is a very nice design.

Perfect for those peeps who want silent desktops.

1./ You can underclock it
2./ You can undervolt it
3./ You can slow those fans down

Nice.

When you REALLY need to game on, then you just turn in all up again.

Looks good, I have been considering getting one of those coolers for my GTX260-216, though the stock cooler works very well, that card is also nice..I don't think the upgrade path would be worth it, and I don't have the cash but it looks tempting! Good to see some step up the ante too!

I agree man, I'd like an aftermarket cooler for my GTX260-192 even though my temps are good, 60% fan speed isnt too loud but isnt quiet. Stock cooler is damn goodoo though. :rockout:. When I get time, or just feel like it, I'd like to put AS5 on my GPU.
