GeForce GTX 280 Review
GeForce GTX 280 is a high-end GFX based on the 65nm variant of the 2008, second-generation unified architecture.
It's based on the GT200 A2 Core and offers 240 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 28 ROPs, on a 512-bit memory interface of standard DDR3. The central unit runs at 602MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 1107MHz.
Compared to GeForce GTX 275, it only performs up to 4% better, since its central unit runs at lower frequencies but offers extra bandwidth. However, it only consumes around 7% more power.
Some of today's modern demanding games are playable at the highest settings smoothly but most will have to be played with reduced settings. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
