is gtx295 still a top card - Page 2

post #11 of 30
the thing is there an limit to how intense games will end up being at dx10 mode. so having so much power under dx10 isnt needed.

295 is probably "it" for being overpowered at dx10 level. (damn crysis...)

the thing with tesla is they are meant to be used for autoCAD and workstation setups where the gpu is doing multiple linear processes. they are amazing at rendering/autoCAD, but very, very mediocre for gaming. you would be better off with a 5XX/4XX for gaming than the tesla.

I was actually considering upgrading mine for a GTX580 recently, but after reviewing various performance figures decided against it, I just don't think it's worth it for the small performance percentage I'd gain. I'll see what comes along after the 580 or so.
Smart choice.
You should wait until the GTX 590.
It would be the perfect upgrade. Dual GPU previous series -> dual GPU current series.

Yes it will be far better than the tesla c1060.
The tesla c1060 is basically a GTX280 downclocked.

a tesla can't be used for PhysX either cause it doesn't support it.

a tesla is best used for high performance computing.

physX is reliant on shader cores i believe. check out the tesla specs and see how many you've got and if it is possible to have it as a physX card it should be a strong performer considering physX is all linear processing.

tesla does support physx i've just seen a list of physx "enabled" cards and tesla is one of them

It's faster than a 5870 by a good margin on a lot of tests, but only slightly faster on the games that most favor ATI architecture.

It's just slightly below 480 performance on average, and (perhaps) surprisingly, provided the game you're running isn't a huge vram hog, the 295 actually makes up ground and becomes about equal to the 480 at 30" monitor resolution.

MIN's aren't as strong as they are on the 480 though, and the 295 struggles a bit more w/higher levels of AA than the 480 does, generally.

It's still an excellent card if you can get a good deal on one, and aren't attached to having DX11. If you'll be on air, the Co-Op in particular is nice, as it tends to OC better and runs much cooler/quieter than the sandwich. On h2o the sandwich would likely be preferable due to voltage control.

All this being said, I'd say based on current prices on newer cards (like 460/470's) that I'd consider it a decent deal at around $175, and a great deal at $150. Put it this way: A 470 can be OC'd to match it's performance w/o that much difficulty, and you get quite a bit more vram to play w/higher res/aa levels, similar noise, less heat, DX11, and no SLI hassles ... so it needs to be noticeably le$$ than a 470 in my esteem.
