Seeing as how Ryan has somehow managed to suppress his need
to sleep, there is a brand new review up this morning, of nVIDIA's GTX 285 1GB graphics card. For around $400 you can grab the card that is replacing the GTX280, with higher clock speeds and a die shrink.
GTX 285 Shows its 55nm Face
The new GeForce GTX 285 GPU uses the same great architecture (the GT200) that is behind the GTX 280 though shrunk down to a 55nm process technology. What the hell does that mean for you? Higher clocks, lower power and lower prices!

I know that during the first few days of the review being online, the video we provided to accompanying the NVIDIA GeForce 3D Vision review had some issues for some people. For those of you that missed it, or even watch it again, I have provided a streaming Viddler version in the review and posted here as well.
Let me know what you think of the new format!

AMD did get there with their new generation of cards first, it has taken nVIDIA a long time to come out with a dual GPU card like the HD4870 X2. Now that they have, it seems that the wait was worth it as their hybridized GTX 295 is incredibly powerful. Tech Spot shows this card beating a pair of 260's in SLI across the board and leaving the 4870 X2 in the dust. Right now, only $

Look out HD4870 X2, you are no longer competing and sometimes beating nVIDIA's best card, the GTX260+ has been replaced by the GTX 295. Sporting an ungodly 1792MB of GDDR3 and a pair of what are essentially GTX 280 cores, this card is unbeatable. If you splurge and pick up a pair of them (assuming you can handle ~650W draw from the cards alone), you can expect to play Crysis on high quality at 1920x1200 and get average frame rates in the high 60's, an unprecedented score.

The HIS Radeon 4870 ICEQ4+ TURBO is a full 1GB model sporting a fancy third party cooler that drops the temperatures as well as the noise at full. As the running temperatures and fan noise were the two biggest faults of the original 4870, this really is a great step forward. Add into that equation the coming price drop as well as the ~10% o
