The Products – GeForce GTX 280 1GB FlagshipWith the new naming structure for their internal code names (curious why G92 was followed up by GT200?), the GeForce 10-series will never be. Instead we get a somewhat curiously named product: the GeForce GTX series. While “GTX” was once a suffix for the top end cards of each series, it is now the name of a series with a three number denomination as a product differentiator. No matter, we don’t care about names, just performance.
The GTX 280 uses the full power of the GT200 chip including all 240 SPs and the full allotment of memory controllers. We have already detailed the architecture, but what about individual speeds? As it turns out our BFG GeForce GTX 280 card runs slightly over reference speeds:
For a quick sanity check the estimated street price for these cards is $649.
