nVIDIA's small steps to success
Subject: Graphics Cards | January 19, 2009 - 12:08 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
It's a fair jump for the graphics core to go from 648MHz to 702MHz, the stream processor from 1.476GHz to 1.584GHZ and the memory from 2.484GHz to 2.646GHz, but that is exactly what EVGA did with their GeForce GTX 285 SSC Edition. Even more impressive is [H]ard|OCP's final numbers when they try overclocking this card even further. Architecturally the GTX 285 does not really differ from the 280 it replaced, but the die shrink has really opened up the maximum clock speeds. Read on for some rather impressive benchmarks.
"NVIDIA is launching the GeForce GTX 285 which is a refreshed GTX 280. We take a look at
EVGA’s GeForce GTX 285 SSC Edition with some insanely high clock speeds. Higher clocks
hopefully mean better performance, and we see what kind of gameplay experience is delivered
compared to the older GeForce GTX 280."
