GeForce GTX 295 Ahead Of Radeon HD 4870 X2

GeForce GTX 295

The upcoming NVIDIA’s flagship product, the GeForce GTX 295, seems to have so much power that now NVIDIA can kill the Radeon HD 4870 X2. Like the Radeon HD 4870 X2, the GeForce GTX 295 is a dual-GPU graphics card:
– GPU: 2 x GT200 (GTX260) @ 576MHz / 55nm / Shader clock: 1242MHz
– Memory: 896Mb per GPU (1792Mb total) / 448-bit per GPU @ 999MHz (DDR)
– Shader processors: 2×240 (480)
– ROPs: 2×28 (56)
– Texture units: 2×80 (160)
– Power connector: 1×6-pin + 1×8-pin

There are two features that seem wrong: the number of shader processors and texture units. The GTX 295 is based on the new version of GT200 tagged “G200-103-B2”. This GPU has 216 cores. Then the total number of cores should be 2×216 = 432. And the number of texture units should be 2×64 = 128

Notice the resolution: 2560×1600. Dual-GPU graphics cards really unleash their power in high resolution only…

    I would prefer the X2 because is cheaper, smaller, consumes less power, is technologically superior DX10.1 and its cost per FPS is better.
