You know, it's built for gamers ...
A couple of weeks ago we had the honor of bringing you guys a review on the GeForce GTX 295. And that article proved one thing, it's going to be welcomed into the high-end arena with open arms. It's impressive, it's fast, and heck it even looks good too.
Today however we are re-writing the preview, and will make a fully fledged review of it. For this full review we'll grab a BFG GeForce GTX 295. Everything we could not talk about will be covered and obviously, some additional benchmarks are now included, making this a new review on the GeForce GTX 295 final product.
It does not end there though because today we'll bring you yet another article, GeForce GTX 295 Quad-SLI, heck we just had to give that a try for the sake of it as well. So we took the fastest Core i7 platform money could buy us, made sure we had a 1200 Watt PSU in there and started testing Quad SLI. But again, that's covered in another article though. This one will be all about one single, yet dual-gpu based, GeForce GTX 295 versus it's competition.
And you know what guys? I'm excited as I love the high-end gear and the gaming that goes along with it. Also for this this review, we have received a new final driver, GeForce Forceware 181.20, and I'm happy to report that in several scenarios... it made the games roughly 10% faster than the preview we have shown you. Now though 10% might not sound like a lot, trust me... in the high-end game... it's pretty frickin significant.
Anyway, enough of the introduction, let's have a technical look at the product, look at power consumption, noise levels, temperatures, photos and obviously the performance it'll poop out on your monitor. And sure, we'll overclock it a little as well... You guys ready?
Have a peek at BFG's offering, and then head on over to the next page please.
Today a review the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC ACX edition. The Superclocked model comes with a nice factory tweak and that all new Sleeve bearing fan based ACX cooler. Overall the card is almost as fast as a GeForce GTX Titan, 100% cool and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 WindForce 3x OC review
We test and review the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 WindForce 3x OC edition. The graphics card comes witha factory overclock and the new WindForce 3X 2 Slot 450W fan sink with Triangle Cool fans, as they like to cool it. That would be three silent 80mm fans. Overall the card is almost as fast as a GeForce GTX Titan, 100% cool and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
GeForce GTX 780 SLI and Multi monitor review
We review the GeForce GTX 780 SLI and also do a SurroundView session with three monitors. The boards used are reference from NVIDIA. Over the next few pages we'll tell you a bit about multi-GPU gaming, the challenges, the requirements and of course a nice tasty benchmark session with the latest games. We'll have a peek at temperatures and power consumption of the GeForce GTX Titan cards in 2-way SLI mode to monitor it's generated performance.
GeForce GTX 780 review
We test and review the GeForce GTX 780. The GeForce GTX 780 is NVIDIAs all new high-end graphics card based in their Flagship product, the GTX Titan. This means it is based on the GK110 GPU and has an whopping 7.1 Billion transistors. That makes it a nice chunk faster opposed to the GeForce GTX 680 GPU. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
