Zotac's GTX 285 Infinity is real
Cebit 2009: Will sell at €479
We had a chance to take a picture of Zotac's GTX 285 Infinity Edition water cooled card at Cebit, and we can confirm that the card is real. The card works at 722MHz for the core and according to Zotac it should hit retail with a €479 price tag.
Zotac's Infinity Edition uses a large water-block and works at 722MHz for the core and 2.7GHz for 1GB of GDDR3 memory. The shaders are clocked at 1,584MHz. When it was officially announced, Zotac told us that this card will be priced at €499, but decided to lower the price and sell this card for €479. These €20 could help to make this card even more appealing, and Zotac might have a winner on its hands.
The card should hit retail by the end of this month and with water cooling this card will certainly have more overclocking potential.
