EVGA's GeForce GTX 295 Plus Tested and Burned In

A few weeks back, we took an in-depth look at the dual-GPU powered NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295. Just to recap a bit; the GeForce GTX 295 is NVIDIA's current flagship graphics card that couples a pair of 55nm GT200 GPUs with 1792MB of frame buffer memory, culminating in what is ultimately the fastest, single graphics adapter on the market at this time. It appeared after about 5 months of work and fine tuning, NVIDIA was sick and tired of letting AMD's Radeon HD 4870 X2 lead the pack as the fastest single graphics card in the market.

In our launch article, we also gave you a glimpse of the EVGA GeForce GTX 295 Plus, but due to time constraints, we weren't able to benchmark and fully evaluate the card. We have since, however, given the EVGA GeForce GTX 295 Plus a good once over, and are ready to shine the spotlight on it here. Although it is, at its core, a straight-up reference design, EVGA worked a bit of their mojo and tweaked the GTX 295 Plus' clock speeds slightly to boost the card's performance over stock models.

I wouldn't want to be in that room. My 4870s heat up my little office. might have to do something creative this summer.

A 295 definitely puts out less heat than a pair of 4870s. I can't even touch my 4870s for a good 5 minutes after a round of testing.

Thats good to hear. I love these things, plus the back vents make great foot warmers, but come this summer they are going to be warm.
