Default Nvidia plans a Geforce GTX 285 with 2Gb

Since Radeon HD 4870 already comes in 2GB, and the HD 4890 will likely also come in 2GB versions, Nvidia doesn’t really have any other choice than to launch its 2GB card in the same market segment.

The only trouble is that Nvidia’s Geforce GTX285 2GB will end up much more expensive than Radeon 4870 2GB but it should also end up faster.

Think it's overkill and the card will hardly benefit from the extra ram... but this is marketing, the competitors have a 2gb card. We can do that too...

I'm not sure, I think that at 2560x1600 with AA you will see a difference

GTX 280/285 is powerful enough for 30" 2560x1600 for more games than you think
