NVIDIA's latest addition to their graphics card lineup is based around the 55 nanometer GT200b. The new card offers more performance, consumes less power and is quieter than the previous model. Yet these improvements cost you a premium of about $70 over the GTX 280. Is that price justified?

It wasn't meant to kill the 280, amazed it does take over the 9800GX2 in some games, it draws 3 watts less power at maximum load it seems from the 280. I think however the cards price should be less than the 280 because it doesn't constitute a major boost in performance, but then again I guess the 285 will replace the 280 as of manufacturing for the next 6 months its out.

Nice OC potential on this card. I don't understand the pricing though. How can this be $400 and the GTX 295 be $500 :confused:

This card is obviously not the one nVidia is wanting to show with the GT200b core. Why didn't you review the GTX 295 and make it the primary subject of the review?

Wow, only 1% slower than the HD4870x2 at stock clocks...very nice.

I don't think the price is really that bad, they are already going for $380 on newegg with GRID and 3DMark Vantage, and the closest HD4870x2 is $50 more, and the price is only bound to drop over the next few weeks as the hype dies down.

Two six pins? Freakin nice. I will probably step up to a 285. I just wish they kept the back play :ohwell: I guess they did that because they moved all the ram to the front of the card huh?

The back plate was no longer necessary because of all the memory being on the front of the card. Cost savings was key with the GT200b, so every little bit helps. No point including a useless backplate that only serves to increase the costs.

However, there is talk on the eVGA forums about eVGA releasing a seperate backplate add-on for their cards, of course I'm sure they'll charge an arm and a leg for it, and it will only be available through their store...

Sorry if I miss read it, but on the OC page, the memory clocks you said you reached do not match that shown by GPU-Z.



Great review otherwise, looking forward to the GTX 295.

It's a great card but for those that already have a 280 there's really no point upgrading for a couple of more frames. Now the gtx 295 on the other hand....

I agree. The 8800 Ultra had no backplate, yet it was a good-looking card.

Thanks W1zz! Great review.


Wow! That thing really hammers the 4870x2's. I'm kinda suprised its also so close to the GTX295, granted I understand thats the 260x2 but still. Probably won't run out and buy it but its still pretty impressive on the charts, especially for just a die shrink (well pretty much, lol).

new vga review platform will have newer games, but i wont add games that dont have any kind of benchmark mode. manual fraps running for like 10 cards @ 4 resolutions kinda sucks

edit: it's 23 cards x 4 resolutions x 18 benchmarks = 1656 "scores" in this review

This test is about nothing ... totally shit

Dual Core very very underscore 4870 X2, resolution 1024x768? Fot today cards? :laugh:
Where is 2560x1600, this test is only for children ... learn on real wesites how are GFX review made.
not everyone has a monitor that produces that resolution, Most gamers are in the 1280x1024-1600x1200/ 1280x800-1680x1050 arena, also to criticize the tester of the boards, id love to see you try and conduct a review as indepth as Wizzards, Also his reviews are the most unbiased ive seen vs other websites.
