In January 2009, the company expects to release the latest NVIDIA graphics adapters based on the upgraded 55-nm processors GT200b, including, we expect and masthead solutions dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295, which must compete with graphic cards ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2. If the technical characteristics of graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 is already known, this is a question of productivity devices is still open, particularly with regard to systems equipped with two similar video cards, so the same is also disbanded. This allows you to assess how products will be of interest to users of enthusiasts who want to build a personal computer top performance. Just a few days ago we informed about the latest record in a test application 3DMark Vantage, indicated by a system based on razognannogo Intel Core i7-965 Extreme Edition and equipped with just three GeForce GTX 280 graphics cards. Such a high result gives hope that the computer is equipped with two dual-graphics cards (both work just four graphics processors) will be equally attractive to enthusiasts. However, to assess the possibility of GeForce GTX 295 graphics cards can now - in the Internet the first information on the testing system, equipped with two adapters. As the platform was chosen motherboard Asus Rampage II Extreme, which is a central processor Intel Core i7-965, accelerated to the frequency of 4, 19 GHz. Enthusiasts who conducted the study, decided to increase the working frequency of the video cards:the frequency of the nucleus increased to 705 MHz, Shader units up to 1480 MHz, and memory chips up to 1250 MHz. Test results should satisfy even the most demanding users:the system was able to recruit 35, 711 points for the graphics subsystem, and the total was 32, 575 points. It is worth noting that, although set in the days of record and had not been beaten, the results can be very high - the working frequency of the CPU, and graphics cards to lower frequencies. But do not doubt that the use of cooling with the use of liquid nitrogen overklokery be able to set new records in the tests, including the 3DMark Vantage.
