    It's time for some new information, provided by our colleagues over at OCWorkBench. As reported by them NVIDIA is preparing to launch its new GeForce GTX 285 card on January 15th, while the dual-GPU GeForce GTX 295 is planned to debute on January 8th, during the first day of CES 2009. These two video cards will be NVIDIA's future top performing products. We're already familiar with the specs of GeForce GTX 285. It will be based on a 55nm production node with 183W TDP, and will have reference clock speeds of 648MHz for the core, 1476MHz for the shaders, and 1100MHz (x2) for the memory. On the other side, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 is a dual PCB, dual GPU card, that will beat the mighty ATI Radeon 4870 X2. Some of the facts that we already know include: 2x GPUs with a total of 480 shader processors, 1792MB memory (896MB per GPU), 576MHz core frequency, 1242MHz shader frequency, 999MHz DDR3 memory frequency, and Quad-SLI support. That's all folks, put aside some $ for next week.

    They didnt tell me but since I returned my 4870x2 to buy one of these I figure they will be paying me... In my opinion the whole point of NV bringing out this card was to take the spot light off ATI by making it slightly faster and cheaper.

    I have a friend in china... If I bought a GTX260 here and sent it over to him could he change it for a 285 and send it to me?

    Holy moly can you imagine if one GTX295 can beat a 4870 x2 then a quad sli set up with
    2 of them would be freaking outrageous performance like you could probubly play crysis
    with 1920 x 1200 fully maxed out and get playable frame rates. MAYBE!!

    Well a single 4870x2 can already play crysis maxed out at like 30-60fps. IMO u shouldn't need anymore then 60fps.

    GTX SLI Performance

    You have a 4870 x2 that can play Crysis at 1920x1200 with "Everything" maxed out? I'm talking all the antiailiasing and every setting available to it's highest possible not just "very high" I know mine can't do that but I havn't seen the 280ies in triple sli but I really don't think they could do it eather. Also, I've searced the web and I see some say the 295 has only 10% performance increase and others say much more, we will just have to wait and see. But Dude if you can prove your 4870 x2 can do Crysis "ALL SETTINGS" maxed at 1920x1200 or higher please post a pic for me.
