Thanks. Looks to be what I expected, which is fine. It will be a nice improvement over my 9800gx2 in many respects.

Price/performance wise, the GTX 280 pwns the GTX 285.

Yeah I know the 280 would be a better deal. It's about $100 cheaper for the 280SSC. I am coming from the 9800gx2 so for me it was time for an upgrade. I'll go for the 300 series when they come up, end of the year, or beginning of next year.

I went for the slighty faster, cooler card anyway. :)

Yep, it's tre boring. If I were buying myself I'd get a GTX 280 and OC it, or an HD 4870 1Gb and do the same. Most 280s do 648 on the core and I've seen some crack 700.

This one is Core clock 702MHz out of the box. Coming from the 9800gx2 I wanted as much power as I could without doing SLI.

Hmmm, very nice :)

745 Core | 1681 Shaders | 2928 Memory (effective).

2928 Mhz on the memory !!!!

jAkUp, can you confirm this ?

I was thinking to get the Asus ENGTX285 Extreme, but, if this SSC baby overclocks the memory to these levels, i'm getting one.

NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 285 comes with a reasonable amount of overclocking headroom. With no additional cooling, we were able to raise GPU, shader and memory frequencies to 688MHz, 1,567MHz and 2,950MHz, respectively.

Whilst a stock-clocked GeForce GTX 285 may only provide performance on par with a pre-overclocked GeForce GTX 280, an overclocked 285 will stretch that lead a little bit further. Expect a range of pre-overclocked GeForce GTX 285 parts from the get go, and possibly higher-clocked cards when liquid-cooling comes into play.

Considering the EVGA GTX 285 SSC is already pre-overclocked, we really weren’t expecting much at all but as you can see below, the final overclocks are nothing short of shocking. Granted, the core clocks could only be bumped up a few Mhz but it is the memory clocks that floored me. We are talking over 3Ghz (DDR) on GDDR3 here and with this overclock I bumped right into the CPU limitation presented by my near-4Ghz quad core. The 20,100 score in 3DMar06 couldn’t be passed no matter what I did so maybe I will revisit this overclock as I play around with higher CPU overclocks.

Through our overclocking efforts we managed to get the core stable at 720MHz, the shaders stable at 1.7GHz and the memory stable at 2.85GHz. We were very impressed with the shader and memory overclock. The shaders are overclocked very high from the default speed of the GTX 280, and the memory overclocked nicely for being GDDR3. The resulting memory bandwidth improvement takes us to 182 GB/sec.

So it consumes more power despite being 55nm, and its price/performance ratio is lower than the 280 and the 4870X2...

well I know what my upgrade won't be.

Re: GeForce GTX 285 Reviews!
 
Between the lower power requirements and the slight speed increase it looks like a decent card but they aren't going to sell too many of them at $379 if the 280 is dropping to $300 or less. If this card was $300 it'd probably sell like crazy though.
