First Geforce GTX 295 with single PCB layout from Inno3D - Update
The first single PCB graphics card with Nvidia's GTX 295 is on its way to the retailers. A Inno3D GTX 295 Platinum has been pictured.
Up to now there had only been design sketches. But now the first pictures of a real Nvidia Geforce GTX 295 with a single PCB - the Inno3D GTX 295 - have been published.
The card has Nvidia's default single PCB layout and is equipped with a dual slot cooler. Two NF200 PCI-E chips link the two GT200 GPUs. Two times 240 Shaders as well as two 448 Bit memory interfaces connected to two times 896 MB video memory are onboard. The frequencies of the new card are set to the same values as the dual PCB predecessor - 576 MHz (chip), 1,242 MHz (Shader) and 999 MHz (VRAM). The power is supplied via one 6-oin and one 8-pin connector.
Like the predecessor the Inno3D GTX 295 Platinum supports Quad SLI. According to the report at expreview.com, who also published the pictures, the distribution of the card seems to be running already - so it should become available soon. As the price is regarded, the single PCB GTX 295 will be on about the same level as the predecessor. So the customers won't get a price benefit.
Update May 19, 2009:
Fudzilla.com now reports that Nvidia has scheduled the release of the single PCB version of the Geforce GTX 295 for end of May. As already mentioned prices, clock rates and performance values will stay the same.
