Are you a sadist when it comes to gaming? Want to beat, chew up and spit out games like they were chewing gum? Well you can now do just that!  With the New Nvidia GTX 295! 🙂

Payback Time

After Nvidia’s GT200 based cards were kicked out of it’s throne at the top spot of Graphics Cards Kingdom, by ATI’s Radeon HD 4870 X2 Nvidia couldn’t just stand around! I mean the GT 200 was Nvidia’s pride and joy!

Squashed Up Goo

The Normal rout that most Graphics card makers take these days to take a great existing card and make it awesome was to take two of them  and paste them together for SLi (Nvidia) or CrossFire (ATI) configuration.

The Main problem that Nvidia faced till now was that their GT200 processors were so powerful, that putting two of them together would cause a total melt down.

New Ways to “DIE”

So Nvidia’s answer to this dilemma was new Die-process that reduced their processors from 65mm to 55mm. This helped to greatly reduce heat and power consumption.

So the GTX 295 was born! Pasting together, 2 X GT200 cards in one. So when in SLi mode, it’ll be a quad.
