the point would be to have a competing single GPU for the 4890?

There is no point. That is utter stupid move. What if 4890 is faster than 285, then this card is utter useless. Another scenario is that card is useless if the 4890 is faster than it but slower than 285 - still useless.

Too much risk to screw this up. Stupid move from nvidia to try and keep the price of the 285

(Personal opinion)

Well 4890 if you look at the specs, don't show tooo much gain...

Now 275 GTX is priced to go for 249.99$ and I've seen the 4890 is going to go for 299$. So its still going to be 50$ cheaper than the 4890.

The 4890 looks basically almost the same scenario as 260 GTX vs 260 GTX sp 216 to me:) 

Although the gains look to be greater than what the SP 216 brought to the table.

Althogh I think they should've waited it out a bit and seen what the 4890 brought to the table....sooo meh!

Frankly I don't care which wins haha, I just care about the new series, both of these go into my revision pile

Gotta agree with L1qu1d here. This is like the GTX 260 216 all over, the 4890 has about no chance to beat a GTX 285. A "revision" is not going to give the card roughly 25% more power.

And speaking of, my GTX 285 came yesterday, shutting down right now and installing it. Ill put up some rough quick numbers of my 4850 crossfire vs GTX 285 in a thread.

Thank you Spathotan:D

Got some results, ill post them in a second. But as a teaser, my CPU score in vantage was 48000 with physX, forgot to turn it off.

You had 4850 x 2 (crossfire) and you "UPGRADED" to GTX285. Oh man. I pitty you

Heh, I dont need your pity...save it for yourself ;)  The issues with crossfire were too annoying to just put up with. Besides, I never said I "upgraded", your words.

and i thought the 295 had the same chips as the one in the GTX260 216

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261626-33-4850-crossf... Thread has been up bud. And before you cry, remember to scroll up and quote me on "rough numbers". Let me know if you want a specific test and ill get on it.

hmm, so you're actualy donwgraded then !?
March 12, 2009 10:55:27 PM

I am waiting for the rough numbers

Considering the 285 is $100 more than the 4850x2, I'd say the rough numbers are pretty bad. No crying please... :pfff: 


First off, sorry your thread has been hijacked l1qu1d.

As for the people complaining for whatever reason, I knew what I was getting myself into before the purchase, L1qu1d himself knows this as he helped me with the decision. My performance has NOT decreased, Crossfire issues/lack of support is NO LONGER an issue, and the sale of my 4850s will recoup about 80% of the cost which wasnt an issue anyways.

Im satisfied with my switch and glad I did it, my results have improved. Stop making excuses for yourself to spite me just because you cant grasp my logic.

No regrets here in going from a 4870 1gb to a 285 GTX! Besides single card/dual GPU graphics is a mixed bag at best.
March 12, 2009 11:47:14 PM

thats fine, it seems that most ATi holders are ont he offense in general, frankly this card won't affect me at all and neither will the 4890...seeing as it won't beat the 285 GTX, and even if it matches it, what do I care? I got mine for free from BFG:) .

20% out of a card from 100 mhz and a smaller number of SPs even with the newer memory doesn't add up to 20%, I'm sorry
