Lightbulb EVGA announces GeForce GTX 295 Red Edition

EVGA announces Geforce GTX 295 Red Edition



Red shroud and backplate for $549


Just recently, EVGA listed a new version of its sellout Geforce GTX 295 graphics card on its product page, one that was inspired by fiery looks and a primeval appeal for anything resembling flesh. If you're a self-proclaimed enthusiast and like the color red, this card would be a very ideal choice. (Or you should get a red ATI, sub.ed.)

The EVGA Geforce GTX 295 Red Edition is inspired by the company's new trend to design products with red and black color tones. A few examples can be seen with the shroud color of the 55nm Geforce GTX 260 Core 216 as well as the newly announced X58 SLI Classified motherboard. The card runs at stock frequencies of a 576MHz core, 1242MHz shaders, and 1998MHz GDDR3 memory, but these can be significantly raised through the use of the company's GPU Voltage Tuner as acclaimed by many users.

This model, labeled 017-P3-1294-AR, comes with a preinstalled red EVGA GTX 295 backplate, which have been reported to provide significant temperature reductions by up to 10C on load.

EVGA currently lists the Red Edition for $549.99 on its site with stock expected to be available soon, and it will not take away your freedom or speech, nor socialize healthcare.

The failure / success rate of this card will be no different than that of the current black EVGA GTX 295s. It's the same card with different shell and backplate colors.

Everyone who has one here like their card, to my knowledge.

Yea that is true but I have read of two different people in the last week who have gotten 3 bad ones from EVGA. Several others rmaing at least once.

Its too much of a coincidence for it not to maybe be a bad batch or something. I can link you the threads here, but one of the guys I know personally, and he got three bad ones. One would not even install without errors, the other two wouldn't run at stock clocks without artifacting in crysis.

Evga bins these cards too, thus all the versions, so either the have a bad employee doing it, or there is an issue.

If you get 3 bad cards... that has got to be 99% user error. I mean 1 is one thing, that could happen. 2 is REALLY bad luck, but no one gets 3 bad ones.
