eVGA GeForce GTX 280 HC16 Hydro Copper Review

Be the first to comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - 2008/09/26 at 10:00

Categories: Graphics Cards   Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

For those that already have a water cooling system, this EVGA’s product might be interesting. This GeForce GTX 280 is overclocked (core is overclocked by 89MHz (602MHz to 691MHz), memory by 108MHz (reference 1107MHz to 1215MHz) and the shaders are up from 1296MHz to 1458MHz) and comes with a large water-cooling block, the complete card keeping a nice single slot design.


From Guru3D, this is top-notch product. The most important thing is the temperatures are very nice. But even if the GeForce GTX 280 remains the fastest single GPU based product on this planet, ATI products just offer more value for the money. But if you need features such as CUDA or PhysX, so this card is the right choice. But the US$600.- price of this simple bundle is not really cool…

CPU Scaling with the GeForce GTX 280

Legion Hardware has tested a range of CPUs with the GeForce GTX 280, to try and determine what kind of processing power is required to power NVIDIA’s flagship graphics card.


The test shows that with high end graphics cards such as GeForce GTX 280, one has to buy a powerful CPU in order to feed sufficiently the GPU with graphics data.

we suggest for those buying high-end graphics cards, such as the GeForce GTX 280, pick up a Core 2 Quad processor while the Core 2 Duo’s are a perfect match for mid-range graphics cards.

EVGA GeForce GTX 280 Hydro Copper Review

Be the first to comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - 2008/08/10 at 10:51

Water cooling is the most efficient way to cool the GPU that’s why EVGA has released an overclocked and water-cooled GeForce GTX 280. EVGA Hydro Copper 16 is equiped with a large copper block that replaces the reference cooling.


Read the complete review here: Water cooled EVGA GTX 280 HC tested

Conclusion:
GTX 280 is the fastest single GPU card and EVGA most certainly pushed it even further with their overclocking. In order to make sure your card lasts for a long time, EVGA decided that water cooling is the way to go. So, they’ve made their own water block design made of pure copper, but also a bit heavy. The card is not heavy enough to damage your PCIe slot, but you should still make sure it’s screwed to the case nice and tightly.
