Single-PCB GeForce GTX 295 Pictured

Zol.com.cn has managed to take some pictures of the upcoming single-PCB GeForce GTX 295. Expected to arrive within a month, the single-PCB GTX 295 features the same specs as the dual-PCB model - 2x448bit memory interface, 480 Processing Cores and 1792MB of GDDR3 memory, and GPU/shader/memory clocks of 576/1242/1998 MHz respectively.

Kinda surprising they are not using a radial fan, given the air flow path. Must work ok I guess.

Looking great but that card must give a lot of heat for that small fan to cool it...?!

Galaxy single PCB GTX295 performance detailed




We can find this product is identical to leaked reference PCB GTX295.The only difference is Galaxy logo. There are two cores and 28 memory on one PCB.The core process is also upgraded to 55nm,GPU works at standard 576MHZ core, shader clock is still at 1242MHz while the memory works at 2000MHz. It provides dual-DVI output and S / PDIF audio input interface.

You missed the Benchmarks DoS :p



And here is some comparison shots of it next to the dual PCB version:



Finally a few close ups I found interesting:

Hypothetically they should perform the same, if they have the same clock speeds. Nothing has changed except for the construction. I also find it laughable that NVIDIA gagged one of its partners when we (and others) posted pictures of their GTX 295 1P accelerator. There's nothing to put an NDA on, really.

Same thing for the XFX 850W, all the original pics at the source have been taken down :(

There's no way those heatsinks are going to cut it.

They will, because nVidia obviously doesn't care if our GPUs run at up to 90C under load.

was abouth time that nvidia makes a single PCB dual chip monster!!!! i have do admit that it looks better then the two PCB model

So this means less power, less expensive to buy, better performance?

1) The power difference will be negligible, 2) I sure hope so, 3) why would that be?

3. faster communication?

It should cost less than the first model or this card become a FLOP.

Should be cheaper, their not making as much stuff. This IS a PCB less.... lol.

Not sure about it though, unless its in the £275 mark, im not even going to consider it. No point spending that much when DX11 is soon (hope so).

I think they should really revise the cooler designs. cuz with the heat thats gonna be throwing out i doubt its gonna last very long before parts of the PCB start to melt. This card will give the term "up in flames" a new meaning

looks good.. but i'm with the idea of revising the cooler design! thanks for the info anyway...

why couldnt they make the coolers shorter but longer, and have three half height 92mm fans on top of them instead?

I don't see why they wouldn't, 2 heatpipes per GPU leading to a lot more fins than the original GTX295 should give decent cooling performance.

Neither does ATi, and 90°C is fine for a GPU.

They took out the HDMI port? Why? Thats one of the reasons i bought my GTX 295 for native HDMI with audio (and I needed a upgrade). AFAIK Nvidia cards can't do audio over DVI or has that changed?

They could of just done 1 DVI port and a HDMI port.

You can use a DVI to HDMI adaptor to get HDMI with sound with this card and most nVidia cards on the market today. The audio is provided the same way in all of them, via an SPDIF audio passthrough connector.

would you buy one if they did release a quad core gpu solution? Hell i wouldnt event think about it.
