Nvidia's GeForce GTX 285: world's fastest one-GPU board?

The 285 is a single-GPU product that Nvidia claimed was 30 per cent faster than rival one-chip graphics cards. Boards based on the 295 design contain two GPUs. Both types of board are two-slot cards.

The 285 contains 240 unified shader processors, with the core as a whole running at 648MHz. Its 1GB of GDDR 3 is clocked at an effective 1242MHz. By comparison, Nvidia's existing GeForce 280, launched last summer, runs at 602MHz and 1107MHz, respectively.
