Guru3D ASUS GeForce GTX 295 review (ENGTX295)
Today another review on that rather outstanding release based on the recently unleashed NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295. I say outstanding here, as besides the Radeon HD 4870 X2, not once has a dual-GPU product been launched and was received with such great enthusiasm. See, NVIDIA has got the driver right, the performance right and obviously… the price is right as the GTX 295 series is selling at less than 499 USD. And for a product with 480 Shader cores, that is just an awful lot of performance.
Many manufacturers and AIBs therefore are now selling the product, and even in times of financial difficulty, these babies sell like cute little puppies in a pet store. One of the biggest names in the tech industry is ASUSTek computers (ASUS), and they figured… well frock it… and jumped onto that GTX 295 band wagon as well. Armed with nearly 1800 MB of graphics memory and a lot of raw performance, we’ll have a look at their offering today. And though the product is 100% reference based, we just had to review this version as well. Heck, we just like to talk about high-end graphics cards you know.
In this review we’ll give you the grand overview on what the GeForce GTX 295 entails, we’ll look at power consumption, heat, do a nice photo-shoot and obviously dig deep into game performance with the hottest titles currently available anno January 2009.
So without further ado, let me introduce you to the ASUS GeForce GTX 295 (ENGTX295) after which you should head on over to the next page. Come on… you can do it.
