GeForce GTX 280 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Tesla Architecture.
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.
It equips a GPU Codenamed G200-302-A2 which has 10 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 240 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 602MHz.
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 512-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1107MHz.
DirectX 10.0 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.
With a rated board TDP of 236W, it requires at least a 550W PSU and it requires at least two 6-pin available connectors.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with the lower positioned GeForce GTX 275.
It is therefore even faster than the Fermi based GeForce GTX 460 768MB.
hi pls help me i need new graphic card and i don't know who's buy with my performance computer on my profile…
is a good choice to buy this graphic card for my pc?
Pretty interesting to look back, and see how fast tech is developing. In 2009 this was the top, and oddly enough it's pricing was around the same of the CURRENT king of GPU's, the GTX 780ti. Although in terms of performance, mid range 150$ cards can demolish this former beast, and you can actually find 280s for under 50$ online :P. The only problem I see is that tech is advancing far far faster with each year, and soon we won't be able to keep up with the upgrades. High-class GPUs one year will be mid-level or even low in only a year or 2..
My card beating the almighty gtx 280, impressive. I remember when this card was a beast back in 09.
I have the FX6100 95w, mb 95w And power 500w real is there any problem I buy this VGA ?
Hi. What is the best graphic card for AMD Athlon II X2 270 3.4GHz ?
Why is this graphic card considered better than mine
Definitely not choice for today..Huge power consumption like oven,DX10,OpenGL2.0,Shader 4.0.One should definitely go for newer no matter what.
so much power for a graphic card that didnt even got competition today
Hey, im currently thinking of buying the game crysis 2 for PC and i have a GeForce GTX 260 GPU and on the Game specs list it reccomends the GeForce GTX 280 I can still use it but on lower setting right?
