NVIDIA GTX 260 & Zotac GTX 280 AMP!

Introduction

Since the release of the 8800 GTX Nvidia has consistently had the best performing high end graphics cards and with every passing product release (up to and including the 9800 GX2) they have pushed performance even further, in some cases adding new features such as more effective video acceleration.

Currently the fastest performing dual GPU product is the 9800 GX2 and in the single GPU arena the 8800 Ultra still leads the way, even if availability is very limited. Despite having the fastest cards available Nvidia are not content to wait on the competition catching them and today we have the release of new high end and mainstream products, the GeForce GTX 260 and GTX 280.

We have two of these new products in our test labs today. The first is Zotac’s GTX 280 AMP! Edition, a factory overclocked sample of the high end model and the other is a reference design GTX 260. We will be testing with a selection of the latest games at resolutions up to 2560×1600 as well as delving into some Blu-Ray playback and card overclocking in order to establish how much of an improvement they are, if any, over the last generation of Nvidia hardware.
