expensive

3 agree

the Radeon HD 4870 X2 performs better at higher resolutions - probably due to the slower GDDR3 memory vs. GDDR5

2 agree

puts off a lot of heat

2 agree

requires a lot of power

Introduced in early December 2008 and officially released at CES 2009 in January, the GeForce GTX 295 is Nvidia's latest flagship card - intended to take the performance crown from the ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2. Featuring two GTX 200 series GPUs built with the latest 55nm fabrication process, the GTX 295 will feature two separate PCBs fused together, and connected by internal SLI. The pair will run at 576MHz, and will feature the same number of processing cores as the current GTX 280. With 896MB of GDDR3 per core, the memory subsystem is similar to the GTX 260, sharing the same speed and bus.Requring one 6-pin and another 8-pin PCIe power connectors, the card will draw 289 watts of power at full load. Nvidia recommends a 680w PSU.

Features
  • 2 x GTX 200 GPUs - 55nm process, 240 processing cores, 576MHz core speed, 1.242GHz shader clock
  • 896MB GDDR3 x 2 - 2000MHz, 448-bit bus
  • requires 1 x 6-pin, 1 x 8-pin PCIe power connector, 289w at load, 680W PSU recommended
