Overclocked to 670MHz


Asus has officially announced its TOP Edition GTX 280 card, claiming up to 12 percent performance boost compared to the reference card.

The new ENGTX280 TOP is overclocked to 670MHz for the core, 1,460MHz for Shaders and 1,215MHz for 1GB of GDDR3 memory paired up with a 512-bit memory interface. According to the press release this is enough to push the 3DMark Vantage extreme preset score from 4877 to 5440.

Asus has also used this opportunity to hint at an ENGTX260 TOP edition, but like every other partner it is still holding back the actual clocks of the OCed GTX 260 card.

The reference clocked Asus ENGTX280 is listed at Geizhals.at with the lowest price of €466.06 and the OCed GTX 280 cards from other AIBs are selling for close to or over the €500 mark, so we expect the Asus GTX 280 TOP to follow the same footsteps.
