Review:
The 295+ beast is out


Left 4 Dead

EVGA GTX 295+ keeps its rightful lead, and although HD 4870 X2 bounces back occasionally, it's not enough to beat the new champ.

GTX 295 continues its spell of dominance in this test, but we recorded the lowest performance difference at 1680x1500 and 4xAA 8xAF - only 0.5%. At 1920x1200 however, Nvidia again gains ground and beats ATI by 9%. At 2560x1600, the GTX 295 is faster by 4.5%, whereas turning on 4xAA and 8xAF results in GTX being faster by 18%.

Dead Space

This is the game where HD 4870 X2 takes the worst beating of all during our testing, ranging from EVGA's already impressive 58% advantage to almost unbelievable 78%.

At 1920x1200, EVGA's GTX 295+ humiliates the HD 4870 X2 by beating it by 58%, whereas the reference GTX 295 lags behind the EVGA's card by only 1%. AA doesn't change the scores, except for extending EVGA's lead over the reference card to 2%.

2560x1600 is a test that HD 4870 X2 will surely want to forget soon as it looses to EVGA's GTX 295+ by impressive 72%. Turning AA on decreases EVGA's advantage to 63% whereas the reference GTX 295 lags behind its overclocked version by 4% in both scenarios.


World in Conflict

World in Conflict isn't making things any easier for ATI, as GTX 295+ keeps marching on the throne.

At 1920x1200, 295 and 295+ run on par but beat the HD 4870 X2 by as much as 24%, and the margin stays the same after we turned on 4xAA and 16xAF filters. At 2560x1600, EVGA 295+ separates itself from the pack by beating the reference version by 5% and extends the lead over the HD 4870 X2 to 26%. The same scenario occurs when we turn on 4xAA and 16xAF, except that the reference GTX 295 narrows the performance gap to 2%.
