More GeForce GTX 295 Details Emerge

Expected to be unveiled at CES '09, the GTX 295 is made up of two print-circuit boards with each one holding a 55nm GTX 200 GPU. Each of those GPU's have 240 stream processors, 448-bit memory bus and 896MB DDR3 memory. In short these monstrous cards are totally outrageous.

Thanks to the guys over at Vr-Zone we have a few pre-release photos:

As you can see from the photos the card is powered by both an 8pin and 6pin power connection, early details suggest the card will require lots of power taking about 289watts of juice. The dual board construction resembles that of the GeForce 9800 GX2 with the cooler sandwiched between the two PCBs. You can also see the card has a single SLI bridge finger, indicating that it supports Quad-SLI in the same way the GeForce 9800 GX2 did (a maximum of two cards can be used in tandem). As far as connections goes you can see, there are 2 DVI and 1 Display Port.

The only things missing now are clock speeds, performance and pricing which still remains a mystery.


Thanks to Guru3d we know have a few more of the specifics. Reportedly the GTX 295 will feature 1792 MB of memory (896 MB per GPU) 480 total shaders processor (240 per GPU). It will have a core frequency of 576 MHz (Texture and ROP units) and the shader processor will run at 1242 MHz. Guru3d has more details including some fairly impressive benchmarks in their article "GeForce GTX 295 preview".
