Review: The GTX 285 can still deliver a mean punch



Testbed

Motherboard: X58B-A;
Processor: Intel Core 2 QX9770
Memory: Corsair Dominator 12800 7-7-7-24 ( Provided by: Corsair);
HDD: WD VelociRaptor 300G 10,000RPM
Driver:  ForceWare 195.50, Catalyst CCC 9.11







Futuremark Tests

Gainward GTX 285 scores great in Vantage as well as in gaming tests, allowing for pleasant gaming at 2560x1600, but it can't cope with HD 5870. Unfortunately, the 2048MB of memory on Gainward's card adds to the price making it almost equal to the pricetag on Radeon HD 5870. Of course, Gainward offers five more different GTX 285 cards, and if saving money is your intent you can easily find up to €50 cheaper GTX 285 models.
