Default Re: GeForce GTX 285 Reviews!

From HeXus:

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.
From Hardware Canucks:

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.
From HardOCP:

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.
