XFX 4890 Black Edition // Zotac GTX285 Infinity

On First Page2. Zotac GTX285 Infinity


Introduction

Today when we speak about high end graphics cards the dual GPU solutions such as the 4870×2 and GTX295 are really at the forefront of each company’s line-up, however, single GPU offerings can bring about advantages in other areas such as heat output and often provide a more elegant solution.

Today we are looking at two cards, the XFX HD 4890 Black Edition and Zotac’s GTX285 Infinity. Both are each respective manufacturer’s fastest single core offerings and bring several improved features to the table. The XFX Black Edition contains a 1GHz core (150MHz increase over the reference card) while the Zotac GTX285 Infinity is supplied with increased clock speeds and a preinstalled waterblock for unmatched thermal performance.

Regardless of the price difference between the cards it is interesting how close their performance can be in some titles.
