Just Plain Mean

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 Preview - NVIDIA has designed a dual-GPU, albeit dual-PCB, video card to compete with AMDs wildly successful Radeon HD 4870 X2 card that is a dual-GPU yet single-PCB design. We preview this new video card and explore gameplay performance in three popular and graphically demanding games. Old GX2 series owners are already backing away.
NVIDIA has definitely made this a worthy competitor to the Radeon HD 4870 X2. But in no way is this a 4870 X2 killer. From our narrow look here today with what is likely to be an immature driver set, the GTX 295 is matching the 4870 X2 in gameplay. Maybe it will best it in a month, but I would not bet on it.
