On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at high-resolution and then cropped and scaled down. The camera used was a Canon 450D 12 MegaPixel.
Aright, despite this article being a preview, we can pretty much show you anything we want. So the next thing I wanted to do is have a look at the actual physical appearance of the GeForce GTX 295. You've already seen a couple of photos but since you guys like seeing this stuff as much as a gorgeous blonde in a bikini (or is that just me?)... let's look at the product.
You can see the GTX 295 is a dual-slot based graphics card. It's needed due to the two PCBs used and obviously it needs proper cooling. The card is the same length as previous high-end cards and falls within ATX motherboard design.
That's 27cm / 10.6 inches of pure unadulterated silicon right there. It weighs quite a lot too. This new-born child weighs in at two, maybe three pounds.
Here's the card positioned slightly in perspective. Admittedly, the design is pretty cool looking, isn't it? Nice black, dark, simple, it doesn't scream NVIDIAAAAAH. So yeah, that's pretty sexy really.
As stated, the two boards are interconnected with each other. Try to imagine that the cooling unit is sitting in the middle in-between the two GPUs, and this is dissipating heat from both GPUs. Therefore both GPUs point inwards.
When we look at connectivity, we see that we do not have anything to complain about at all. All GTX 295 cards will have one HDMI and two DVI connectors. Both the DVI ports support simultaneous HDCP and are dual link capable. Dual link means you can hook up a high resolution monitor up to 2560 x 1600, and likely even higher.
A thing from the past now is the 7-pin analog HDTV-out mini-din, and S-video connector, or YPrPb (component) or composite outputs. Well, the last time I used that connector was before 2004, so I made my peace with that one.
