Since our topic is computer parts related lets talk about the most essential hardware of computers, Graphic Cards, yep video cards are the most important part of any gaming system. If you are a gamer and you want to run your latest and resource hungry favorite games smoothly without any glitches then you need a better graphic card. There are many video cards in the market but you gotta have the latest greatest graphic card if you wanna have all the power you need to run the latest games smoothly.
And these days if you think about latest most powerful card it’s surely Nvidia’s up coming card GeForce GTX295.
GTX295 has a design similar to the 9800GX2 and has two 55nm GT200 GPUs linked via internal SLI. Nvidia has shrink die size to 55nm for GTX295, GTX 280s and GTX 260s are both on a die size of 65nm.
480 (240×2) Stream processors, 1792MB (896MBx2) memory and a memory bus width of 896-bits (448-bits x 2). When it comes to memory Nvidia haven’t followed the foot step of ATI/AMD they are still working with GDDR3 instead of GDDR5.
GTX 295 needs one 8-pin + one 6-pin power connectors as it’s common in high-end cards these days, this is indicative of the card’s high power requirements (speculated at 289W).
576Mhz Core, 1242Mhz Shader, 1998Mhz Memory clocks. GTX 295 comes with two DVI and one HDMI port.
It’s 10.5 inches long same length as the GeForce GTX280.
Rumors are that this card will come with a price tag of US$500, whoa, that would be impressive, if Nvidia price it competitively against AMD 4870X2 it will be a surely hit to blow away the competition and retrieve them their crown of gpu king.
