The GTX295 supports Quad SLI to multiply boosts graphic performance by working with another dual-core GTX295. Supports for DirectX 10, OpenGL 2.1, NVIDIA's PureVideoHD, CUDA and PhysX-ready are also built in to render even the most intense environmental effects or HD DVD video with brilliant clarity.
The card's core clock runs at 576MHz relieving your CPU of pixel-crunching duty. Data surges through the GTX295's 480 (240 x 2) stream processors which are fed by 1792MB of 896-bit 1998MHz GDDR3 memory. Twin dual-linked DVI and 400 MHz RAMDAC lets you display 2560 x 1600 resolution video and graphics on even the largest monitors, or output to your home HDTV via the HDMI connectors for maximum flexibility.
The GTX295 delivers fluid frame rates and HD video with solid performance. If your motherboard can take it, the GTX295 can dish it out.
NEOSEEKER RECOMMEND "This is the first video card we've reviewed that has come with an HDMI cable, and is a welcome sight -- these come in very handy, and you'd probably have to buy one (eventually) if it didn't come with the card. …If you need the fastest card you can get right now, and you can afford it, then the card to get is the BFG GTX 295."
GURU3D TOP PICK "I'm a single GPU kinda guy. But I have to admit, the GeForce GTX 295 took me by surprise... I really seem to like it. The performance is astounding, the price is reasonable and any other variable I mentioned in this review is just looking good. Mind you that BFG will also go even more extreme and build water-cooled version of the GTX 295, very interesting. BFG covers your product with a life-time warranty and made the bundle really interesting. If you decide to place 499 smackaroonies on the table for this card... dude, nobody will hold a grudge against you, in fact everybody will be nodding wisely at you. You'd be making a very valid choice."
HEXUS 81% "The fastest single graphics card in the world. Architectural efficiency results in decent temperatures and lower-than-expected power draw. Comes complete with framerate bragging rights. NVIDIA set out to win back the single-card performance crown and has undoubtedly succeeded." "We consider any product score above '50%' as a safe buy. The higher the score, the higher the recommendation from HEXUS to buy. Simple, straightforward buying advice."
