Their most recent stab at the ultra high end is called the GTX 295 and it is carrying plenty heat to put ATIís competitor in its place. this may be a bit been there, done that for those of you who read our trailer of the GTX 295 a some weeks since but make no fault about it this is a analyze with a ton of games, higher IQ settings and still those power intake numbers we were required to show later the preview.
This is where the rubber meets the road people later we are requiring a completed product here without the strangeness found in the beta drivers utilized for the trailer. In this vein we should observe right away that the drivers we are utilizing for this analyze should be available at found from the Nvidia website.
It comprises of a twin of 55nm GTX 260 cards linked by and SLI connecter which have been treated to allow a little additional performance by extra texture filter units and stream processors.
These two cores are all matched up with 896MB of GDDR3 memory for a total of 1792MB which puts it somewhat below the 2GB of flash fast GDDR5 found on the HD 4870 X2 but that shouldnít be too much of an effect performance-wise.
In the trailer we saw the telltale signs of frame buffer restriction in some rare cases so it will be concerning to see if this becomes more declared as we bump up the AA and IQ settings in the after tests.
