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.

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.
I don't know about the original GTX295 heatsink design, but this can't be enough. 2 heatpipes per GPU may be just barely sufficient, but those fins are small and densely packed. With that fan design you won't be getting much air going through them, and it's going to be of a low pressure.

And that's where aftermarket coolers come into effect:)

Another problem is that a ton of heat is now going into the case... So I think the overall temps of the single gpu vs dual gpu would probably be slightly higher if you factor in case temperature rise and so on... Still, it'd be worth it if they can reduce the price of the card (even though they probably had to increase the amount of layers)... :p

WHO NEEDS A CASE WHEN YOU HAVE A TABLE?

Just realised you're a fellow SA citizen:toast:(nice rig there;))

Haha, I guess you're right... If I bought one of those I'd have nothing left to buy a case anyway so that problem would just sort itself out.

SA FTW! :toast:

would you buy one if they did release a quad core gpu solution? Hell i wouldnt event think about it.
Sure. Might never have the money for one though...

Plan on water from the beginning, just have the two PCB's sandwich a double-side water block :D

I can see this thing bending with out a support beam or something.. Plus, whats the point of this, seriously. Why don't they work on GT300?

ya GT300 would be DX11 I suppose? can't wait changing my single slot 9600GT as it's barely playable on most of today's games :shadedshu

I can't wait for my GTX 275, my HD 3300 chugs in some games at 1920x1080 :p

Excellent! Now make a dual PCB, quad GPU solution!!
that DOES sound good..

eh highly doubtful, and is scaling even any good with quad SLI, like 2 9800GX2 or 2 GTX295's?

dunno lol
they could release a QUAD SLI card for workstations i guess.

who cares?
remember what CD said! "A man's e-peen is determined entirely by how much hardware he doesn't need...yet has bolted onto his rig... "

agreed with that. If I had the money to spend heck I'll put every new hardware and build a monster rig and I'll surely join TPU's folding farm :toast:

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

they could do this.. but with say.. 28nm GPUs i guess.
maybe 28nm versions of the 9600GT
four of those glued together i guess
i'm just spitballin' here =]

The original only had a single flat heatpipe per GPU, and the increase number of fins will also aid even more. Based on the size and design of the heatsinks on this card, I would bet this card actually runs cooler than the original.

Exhausting some of the air into the case does suck, but at least half of it is still be exhausted out the back of the case. Any case with decent airflow shouldn't have a problem with case temps rising. They might go up a couple degrees, but not much beyond that, IMO.

Why would it bend? I think people really underestimate the strength of a PCB, especially one with as many layers as this thing...

Why do i think it will cost exactly the same price? Or i am just being pesimistic realist?
