||Check it out, GTX 285, from EVGA, my
favorite. Awesome-awesome card.
||first of all, in case you guys don't know
this video has been a little late coming.
||I think we did it once before but I might
have lost it, or producer Dan lost it,
||or somebody, I'm sorry, I don't blame
you. Someone might have lost it. Anyway,
||this is the 285. This is the fastest
single GPU card on the market,
||and this is the reference design. This is
the one from EVGA, so it's the factory clocks
||and references and all that good stuff.
A lot of good things to say about this card.
||First of all, it overclocks like
crazy because it is 55 nm,
||that's one of the things they
changed from the GTX 280,
||so it has higher frequencies from
factory, it's faster than factory.
||There's two-way and three-way SLI,
and if you want to do three of these
||and three-way SLI it's actually
faster than two GTX 295s,
||if you're curious at all. Granted,
you have to have three PCI Express slots,
||you're gonna waste
a little bit more power, but
||you will get higher benchmarks and
you will get better frame rates as well.
||And you'll always get that advantage of,
you'll always get better drivers
||in the future, which your performance
will constantly increase,
||which is going to happen regardless.
Whenever NVIDIA releases new drivers
||for these games and for these cards,
you always get a big increase.
||And one of the reasons I like EVGA
is because they actually release SLI patches
||so that when new cards come out,
SLI works right off the bat
||instead of having to wait, you know, three
months for SLI to become available
||when you have this incredible card,
you have two of them and you can't play
||this new game that just
came out with SLI.
||So, very, very good stuff. Let's talk a
little bit about the core clocks on this now.
||This is the
GT 200B Core on here.
||It's the same that's in the GTX 280,
it's just shrunken.
||It's the same that's in the 295s.
It's also the same that's in the 275s,
||which are a new card.
These are the factory frequency cards.
||They're 648 MHz core clock. There's 240
shaders that are clocked at 1476,
||and there's 1 GB of GDDR3, that's at 2484.
||So, very nice frequencies. This card is
going to require about 550 watts to run.
||It is more efficient than GTX 280. In turn,
it only has two 6-pin power adapters
||instead of needing an eight and a six.
That's changed up a little bit.
||Also, while we're here I'll note,
right there next to it,
||that is your audio loop cable
for your S/PDIF header.
||Pretty much, you're going to connect this
from here to your S/PDIF
||on your motherboard. That's going
to give you 7.1 channels of HD audio
||over your HDMI cable, which you will use
with the provided dongle.
||That's great if you want to game,
or if you have a surround sound system,
||you're gonna do movies, Blu-rays,
this has HDCP support,
||which is High-bandwidth Digital Content
Protection, to let you do all your Blu-rays,
||your HDDVDs, if you still have those,
or any HD content you might get off the web.
||So that's important to know. Now,
besides that, dual link DVIs right there.
||Those are dual link, so you can do
up to 2560 x 1600.
||Up to 240 Hz refresh rate on a single plug,
or up to 85 Hz on one of these.
||At 2048 x 1536. If you're going to do
2560 x 1600, they're going to do
||60 Hz max refresh rate,
if you have both of them hooked up.
||7-pin digital S-Video cables, right there.
||You will probably never use that
but it's there in case you need it.
||This is where your SLI adapter
will go, right there.
||So your SLI bridge comes
with your motherboard.
||If you have an SLI certified motherboard,
don't be looking for it in the box,
||because it is not there.
||Also in the box, I will have you note that
you do get two of these 6-pin
||PCI Express two molex connectors.
||So, if you want, this is going to transfer
two molexes into one PCI Express.
||So these are pretty useful.
These do about 100 watts each.
||Actually, you know,
I think they do 150 watts each.
||So it's 300 in total they can do.
This is a 206 watt TDP card.
||There's a little bit more if you overclock
it, and it does about the same.
||It just adds up double
if you're going to put them in SLI.
||So, don't worry about that.
Now also included in the case,
||you're going to get your drivers.
I highly recomment you don't use these.
||Go to the website and get the latest ones,
because that's what's going to give you
||the best performance. Now, besides that,
you're pretty used to seeing
||the rest of the stuff. Obviously physics
is always included on here.
||CUDA is always included on here. It's part
of the whole NVIDIA parallel processing
||revolution that they're all about.
You know, GPU or GPGPU,
||which is General Purpose Graphics
Processing Units, I don't know.
||So, very popular, you're going
to see that a lot.
||This will do 3D vision,
the G-Force 3D Vision,
||which, if you haven't checked
it out is absolutely incredible.
||It's really fun to use.
And it changes your gaming.
||It's actually really, non-gimmicky 3D.
It's the first 3D, that's not like,
||"Oh God, I feel stupid with these glasses on,
and this is retarded."
||This is like, fun, awesome 3D,
zombies coming at your face in Left 4 Dead.
||Like, it's really fun
and this is certified for it.
||This card can do just about
any game in 3D.
||Also, DirectX 10, obviously ShaderModel 4.0,
||HDCP support, HDMI support, that's all
tied together by the PureVideo HD,
||which is to give you that great quality
Blu-rays, great quality HDDVDs,
||or anything that's Hi-Def over the web.
Or you just have a file from camera,
||it's going to give you extremely
crystal clear playback.
||Plus the audio is an added bonus.
||So, really nice card.
It's the EVGA GTX 285.
||And, don't forget,
GTX, I'm sorry, EVGA, is very nice
||because a couple things, they give you
24/7 support, so you can call whenever
||if you have a problem. They give you
a double warranty, which is lifetime.
||And, they also give you a couple tools,
like the precision overclocking utility,
||which lets you overclock
||Control the fan speeds manually
and do stuff like that.
||So a lot of good stuff.
If you have any questions on this card,
||Email me, I'll see you guys next time.
