We've heard and seen a lot about NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce 295 dual-GPU graphics card recently, but little has been mentioned about the next flagship single-GPU offering; the GeForce GTX 285. We know that the card is based on NVIDIA's refined 55nm G200b core and apparently it runs identical specs to the existing GTX 280s, but will come in with higher reference clock speeds yet eats less power.
Now we get to see a bit more about how this relates in real world terms with ChipHell scoring two slides from NVIDIA which show a few of the GTX 285's specs and some benchmark results of the card up against an existing GTX 280 on a Core i7 platform across a series of gaming tests.
Of course, the usual grains of salt are to be taken from NVIDIA marketing slides, but theoretically the results don't seem too far off the mark with the GTX 285 performing on average 10% faster to the 280. But keep in mind it will also use less power and run cooler.
