NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280 Preview

We’ve managed to get our grubby hands on NVIDIA’s latest graphics card, the GeForce GTX 280. Not only did we take it apart, we are going to provide you with some preliminary results.

We took a GeForce GTX 280 card apart to let viewers take a good look at what’s underneath that mammoth cooling unit.

The bare card itself reminds us of the legendary G80 card design, while the rear I/O plate and the cooling unit (not pictured here) is a mix of the current GeForce 8800 GTS 512 and GeForce 9800 GTX designs.

This card is power-hungry, just like the GeForce 9800 GX2 1GB which also requires 6-pin and 8-pin (one each) PCI-E connectors.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280 1GB has 16 memory chips to make up a total of 1GB video memory, running on a 512-bit bus. Eight memory chips are on the front, while the other eight are located at the back.
