GeForce GTX 280 tested with Crysis

PCZILLA translated a post from a Japanese hardware site that has benched the GeForce GTX 280:
GTX280 CRYSIS 1920*1200 VH Average FPS Reached to 36.81!.

Japan IT Media website today brings us the CRYSIS 1920*1200 VH test result of NVIDIA next generation flagship GeForce GTX 280 graphics card.

IT Media site had the opportunity to run GPU-Z, CPU-Z and Crysis Benchmark on the GTX 280 demo system. From the photos, we can clearly see that NVIDIA GTX 280 presentation system used Intel Core 2 Quad four-core processor, the frequency is 2.66GHz, the Crysis Benchmark with 1920 x1200 VeryHigh settings indicated that the average fps of GTX 280 graphics card reached 36.81!

Crysis benchmark should display the renderer in the top-left corner, like oZone3D.Net GPU benchmarks do. That would have been the proof the renderer used is a geforce gtx 280:

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280 Power Enhancements

GeForce GTX 200 GPU series have four different performance/power modes:
– Idle/2D power mode: approx. 25W
– Blu-ray DVD playback mode: approx. 35W
– Full 3D performance mode: varies – worst case TDP 236W
– HybridPower mode: effectively 0W

Using a HybridPower-capable nForce motherboard, such as those based on nForce 780a or 790i chipsets, a GeForce GTX 200 GPU can be fully powered off when not performing intensive graphics operations and graphics output can be handled by the motherboard’s IGP.

NVIDIA illustrates HD movie transcoding capabilities of GPUs

We already knew NVIDIA is going to heavily promote the HD movie transcoding capabilities of its GPUs through CUDA but here are some very specific numbers. According to the slide it takes a 1.6GHz dual-core CPU 10 hours and 22 minutes to encode a 2 hour long HD movie while a 3GHz quad-core processor finishes the job in 5 hours in 33 minutes.

The same 1.6GHz dual-core system with a GeForce 9600 GT will be able to complete the job in only 49 minutes! That’s more than 12x as fast and the GeForce 9600 GT isn’t even a high-end part. I can imagine that faster GPUs like the upcoming GeForce GTX 280 will be able to do it much faster.
