PNY GeForce GTX 285 Video Card
A while ago we examined the new dual-GPU graphics card NVIDIA GeForce 295, based on two 55nm GT200b chips. And today we are going to review a single-chip GeForce GTX 285 card that is to replace GTX 280, the previous single-GPU top card. First of all, it's a usual upgrade to a better process technology that leads to corresponding improvements in power consumption, heat release, and a little performance gain.

GeForce GTX 280 hasn't had a single-GPU competitor from AMD since its release. RADEON HD 4870 X2 is more expensive and reaches higher frame rates in popular applications, and HD 4850 X2 is not widely spread. However, the latter card is the best choice for comparison with the new GTX 285, if we consider their recommended prices. It conforms well with AMD's concept of manufacturing High-End dual-GPU graphics cards. Unlike AMD, which already manufactures only multi-GPU solutions for the High-End segment, NVIDIA is not going to give up the idea of single-GPU top cards, and GeForce GTX 285 continues this good strategy.
