EVGA Silently Launches the GeForce GTX 295 Red Edition

With no official press release, a new version of EVGA's GTX 295 has appeared on their website. Dubbed the GTX 295 Red Edition, the card is clocked at the stock speeds of 576 MHz on the core, 1242 MHz on the shaders, and a 1998 MHz memory clock, using a reference cooler, which appears to have simply been painted red. Although the card appears to bring nothing new to the table other than the option of a new colour, EVGA are asking US$549.99 for the card, which is $45 more than the standard black variant. It would appear following the launch of their X58 classified motherboard not long ago, that EVGA could be heading towards a new colour scheme, at least for their premium products.

I wouldnt go as far as "look like an ATi card" the PCB underneath is still black or dark blue/green the cooler looks like any 295 cooler but painted red with a machine/lazer cut EVGA logo nothing THAT spectacular, their just trying to make their cards look different to similar/the same cards released by their competitors.

Its just so that 'Farrari Red' is a real eye catcher.

Sexy card.

I like that they put the shroud over the backside of the card too. I've always hated the fact that they put beautiful coolers and shrouds on the side of the card that you can't see once it's installed. Instead, you get to see the ugly backside of a pcb with bar codes and serial numbers all over it.

Nicely done EVGA. :toast:


EDIT: Lol - Did anyone else notice that the box has the 90-day stepup program on it?

Step up to what? :D

Is this even going to be available? Aside from the shortage of regular versions of this card there have been reports that they're going to stop manufacturing them all together since they're sold at a lose. I mean technically they don't have to be actively producing the card to claim the title of fastest.

No. Black looks FAR better. However I am rather fond of smurf blue.

That's the same thoughts I had. If I didn't have my 4870x2 I would buy one.
