Not only that if some of the other big titles like Alan Wake come out this year, there might be other games pushing the 1GB envelope. If you're going to use the card for any length of time, I'd consider 1GB the minimum at this point.

I'd dump my HD4870 512MB in a heartbeat for a lower power req GTX285. I hope it this comes out soon and we see some benchs!

Anyone know possible pricing for the 285s?

Tigerdirect is selling BFG 280 OC edition for $295 btw, pricing is dropping fast.

The GTX280 is more interesting price performance wise if you ask me.

The GTX285 will cost about 100 more than a GTX280, and a GTX280 can be overclocked to GTX285 values easily.

I'm thinking of getting 2 280's instead of 2 285's. Saves me 200 euros, and with some clocking I have the same FPS results. GTX280 is insanely cheap atm.

Okay, a 285 can be overclocked too, but its not worth the extra money imho.

GT212 will be.

Depends how much money you have to throw at a new GPU/S and besides performance hasnt REALLY been tested with the new 285's.

I was ready to jump on a couple of 295's or 3 285's, but with the GT212 just around the corner. I think I will hold off.

Some very nice clocks there. Will be interesting to see what XFX XXX version will be like.

WOW!!! Very, VERY! nice clocks on that Extreme version. I think the core can be clocked higher. To about 750Mhz I think. The 280's do 700... so...

That Extreme version will be an expensive card I think though.
