Geforce GTX 295: Benchmarks and pictures of a Single PCB reference
Up to now the Geforce GTX 295 has been build on PCBs that were oppositely positioned - as were all Dual GPU graphics cards in Nvidia's DirectX 10 generation. That is supposed to be changed for the new revision and a Single PCB will hold the two GT200b GPUs.
The Geforce GTX 295 in Single PCB design is one the top issues these days but really exciting news are scarce. A Chinese website now offers a set of pictures which obviously shows a first model of the series. Currently the Geforce GTX 295 in Single PCB is reckoned to be available within the next four weeks.
The technical details of the shown model still specify a clock of 576/1,242/999 MHz for GPU/ALU/VRAM with 448 Bit memory interface each, 896 MiByte GDDR3-RAM and 240 shader units. The Chinese website even presents benchmarks of the Geforce GTX 295 Single PCB: The card is slightly faster in synthetic benchmarks but the performance in practice stays the same. Values can also be a case of measurement inaccuracy though. The Single PCB design benefits in case of cooling: During idle mode there is 48 degree Celsius against 52 degree Celsius. Under load this benefit disappears: Both models run with 74 degree Celsius.
