The GeForce GTX 295 is nVidia’s latest dual-GPU graphics offering and targets AMD’s Radeon HD 4870X2, also a dual GPU card. And, despite the fact that XFX is no longer a nVidia exclusive graphics partner, the firm is still one of the first out the door with GTX 295 cards.

The GTX 295 comprises two GPUs running at 576MHz each and these are manufactured using a 55nm fabrication process. Each GPU features 240 stream processors and the card also features a total of 1792Mbytes of GDDR3 memory. The memory runs at 2GHz effectively, giving this card plenty of oomph.

Being a dual GPU card with two power hungry graphics processors, the GTX 295 has a maximum power draw of 289-watts. As a result, we highly recommend investing in a quality 800-watt power supply (or higher), if you intend to run this card in a high-end machine.

In terms of performance, the GTX 295 compares well against AMD’s Radeon HD 4870X2. The card returned results of 88fps, 70fps and 64.1fps in Company of Heroes at 1024 x 768, 1600 x 1200 and 1920 x 1200 pixels. These results placed it comfortably ahead of the 4870X2 by appreciable margins. The XFX also returned very similar scores to the 4870X2 in F.E.A.R across all three test resolutions, though it scored less by noticeable margins in the World in Conflict benchmark. Overall the GTX 295 is an impressive card in terms of overall performance though AMD’s 4870X2 is slightly less expensive and offers very similar performance.

Verdict: A super-quick dual GPU card that performs at its best at resolutions of 1920 x 1200 pixels or higher.
