Exclamation EVGA GTX 280

Here it is, the EVGA GTX 280. And yes, it is fast, and in some cases a single GTX 280 is faster than Quad SLI!

1GB of framebuffer with a 512bit interface eliminate all the microstutters with the GX2 that were noticeable on WiC and Vantage, just smooth goodness

3DMark Vantage:
Performance Setting

GX2 Quad SLI= 17,397 (46FPS/52FPS)
Single GTX 280 = 11,300 (29FPS/28FPS)
GTX 280 2-way = 18,641 (54/53FPS)
GTX 280 3-way = 22,882 (70FPS/73FPS)

1920x1200 2xAA, Very High, DX10

GX2 Quad SLI = 23FPS
Single GTX 280 = 18FPS
GTX 280 2-way = 34FPS
GTX 280 3-way = 46FPS

World In Conflict:
1920x1200 4xAA/16xAF, Max Settings

GX2 Quad SLI = 53FPS
Single GTX 280 = 37FPS
GTX 280 2-way = 66FPS
GTX 280 3-way = 67FPS

1920x1200 16xAA/16xAF, Max Settings

GX2 Quad SLI = 45FPS
Single GTX 280 = 48FPS
GTX 280 2-way = 57FPS
GTX 280 3-way = 76FPS

Here is the highest overclock I was able to obtain, nearly a 2600MHz memory clock! Over 165GB/s of memory bandwidth.. wow
Stock: 600/1296/2214
OC: 684/1472/2592

And finally, some Crysis screenshots at 1920x1200 with 4xAA/16xAF everything maxed to the fullest! You can see the framerate and card temperatures in the top left hand of the screenshot. For the first time ever, Crysis is very playable with 4x/16x Very High DX10 settings
