[TPU] GTX280 Full Review Now Up

post #1 of 72
Thread Starter 
Now it's up legit this time. Tests are different as W1zzard totally messed up the Crysis test.



Quote:
With a price of $700 this card will be way too expensive for most of the gamers today. However, there are people that are willing to dish out that amount of cash just to have the latest and greatest. Or even three of them for $2000... But given the die size and the 512-bit memory bus such a high price was to be expected. Also it is normal that NVIDIA will ask for a price premium, for a card that is the fastest graphics card available today. In our benchmarks we saw the GTX 280 beat everything that's on the market, even the NVIDIA 9800 GX2 which is a dual chip card. Unlike the GX2 the GTX 280 does not suffer from SLI's limitations and will run fast on all games, on all motherboards.

Ok the graphs are whacked. This is a draft review and hopefully the full review will be more accurate. High end cards tend to perform on par with mid range cards on small resolutions like what was tested here. I'm sure with bigger resolutions, the spread will be much greater.

TPU had this up for a bit tonight before their site crashed and it has since been removed. Someone at XS saw it and managed to grab the images.

NOTE : I have quoted their post and all information true or false should be credited to Gorguls.

All tests with XP SP2 Crysis DX9 "High Settings".

No link sorry. The Crysis scores can't be on Very High.

Looks great but not the best I was expected but it looks like it isn't doing that well in some reviews.

For a $650 card... I'm not impressed.

I hope it's just the case of immature drivers but nVidia aren't super fast on the driver releases are they

Since when does the 8800GTS 512MB get 40 FPS in Crysis with 4 AA and 16 AF @ 1600x1200 and Very High?

And how the hell can the 8800GTS 512 MB get 200 FPS in Company Of Heroes @ Highest settings? I get like 50 with my sig rig.

Fake.

Wow, really makes me wonder why people will still shell out over $600 for this when in every game but Crysis there is literally no difference between it and an 8800GTS 512 , and its even at 1600x1200 4xAA/16xAF!

Yeah fishy much?

Apparently it's with XP SP2 and I haven't a clue what setting the Crysis bench was at. Maybe medium [which is stupid]?

There's another review going around where the GTX 280 scored 34 FPS in Crysis @ 1600x1200 4AA and 16 AF.
Considering the FPS here are almost double I suspect some thing's not right.
