ASUS, world-leading producer of top quality graphic solutions, has today introduced the world’s fastest dual and single GPU graphics cards incorporating the latest generation of NVIDIA GPUs—the GeForce GTX 295 and GeForce GTX 285 chipsets; with the ASUS ENGTX295, ENGTX285 ULTIMATE, and ENGTX285 TOP graphics cards. With an outstanding 3DMark Vantage Extreme Preset score of 9126, the ENGTX295 leads the pack as the world’s fastest graphics card; while the ASUS ENGTX285 ULTIMATE and ENGTX285 TOP deliver 10% and 5% improvements respectively in gaming experiences when compared to reference designed boards. Furthermore, in order to show that ASUS cares for all gamers, both the ASUS ENGTX295 and ENGTX285 Series graphics cards will come bundled with a special coupon to obtain up to $25 or 10% off on a total of 5 games or CUDA applications at the NZONE webpage.



Up to 10% Performance Upgrades
The ENGTX285 ULTIMATE and ENGTX285 TOP’s core, shader, and memory clock performances are boosted from 648MHz up to 712MHz and 670MHz, from 1476MHz up to 1620MHz and 1550MHz, and from 2484MHz up to 2760MHz and 2600MHz respectively. This generates an astounding 10% improvement in terms of GPU performance for the ENGTX285 ULTIMATE when compared to any other reference designed board. Such extraordinary performance upgrades help to elevate the ENGTX285 ULTIMATE and ENGTX285 TOP’s 3DMark Vantage Extreme Preset score from 6003 to 6607 and 6298—an astonishing 10% and 5% improvement in speed when compared to any other reference designed board. With such overwhelming performance boosts, get ready to feel the adrenaline rush of gaming like never before—only with the ASUS ENGTX285 ULTIMATE and ENGTX285 TOP!

Exclusive ASUS GamerOSD for Versatile Graphics Usage
The ASUS ENGTX295 and ENGTX285 Series also come equipped with the exclusive ASUS GamerOSD that unleashes the true power of ASUS’ VGA cards. This handy feature delivers GPU overclocking from onscreen displays during gameplay—allowing users real-time performance upgrades whenever required. In addition, GamerOSD can also provide users with the option to record live gaming action or broadcast live over the Internet with ease.

SmartDoctor for the Most Powerful Overclockability
ASUS garners yet another world’s first with the ASUS SmartDoctor—an overclocking utility capable of tweaking the Shader Clock on GPUs. With this application, users will be able to overclock the Shader Clock and Engine Clock independently for astonishing performance boosts, without the hassle of rebooting or re-flashing their BIOS.

Value-added Coupon Offer to All Gamers in Holiday Season
To further provide users with added gaming value, the ASUS ENGTX295 and ENGTX285 Series graphics cards will now come with a limited edition coupon. This coupon will allow them to obtain up to $25 in value or 10% off on up to 5 games or CUDA applications at the NZONE webpage. With over 200 game titles like Fallout 3, Far Cry 2 and Call of Duty: World at War, users will be spoiled for choice for the hottest and latest games. The latest CUDA applications like Badaboom are also offered on the site for users interested in unlocking the true power of their graphic card’s GPU cores to help accelerate the most demanding graphical tasks.

Speak Visual with Graphics Plus
The ASUS ENGTX295 and ENGTX285 Series graphics cards are also outfitted with CUDA technology—which not only provides world-class gaming experiences, but also offers the brand new Graphics Plus pack enhancements. Users can experience jaw-dropping PhysX gaming effects, Stereoscopic 3D, and lightning fast video and image processing all accelerated by the GPU. Regardless of whether users are experiencing new worlds of realistic physical motion and massively destructible environments, strapping on their GeForce 3D Vision glasses to game in true Stereoscopic 3D, transcoding HD videos in minutes to their portable video players, or rapidly editing digital images using Adobe CS4, the ASUS ENGTX295 and ENGTX285 Series graphics cards can do it all with mind-blowing performances.

TechARP got the PR before everyone else. They need to fix the GeForce GTX 285 product image, or at least ASUS should publish its PR so I could put up its pic.

Base model ball-park for GTX 295 should be around $499. The base-price of GTX 285 isn't known at this point, some say $349 or $399. They're announced on 8th and 15 Jan respectively. A friend (unreliable source) tells me GTX 295 should reach India by 20th priced around 25,000 Indian Rupees.

and from 2484MHz up to 2760MHz and 2600MHz respectively.
2760mhz GDDR3? It's insane. I wonder how soon will it die.

with the price you pay for one of their Extreme cards - Id say they better get some sorta step up, cash back or a similar scheme going... this is Asus were talking about. not some next company that just dabbles in graphics cards.
