XFX GTX 280 Review


With all the recent fuss over ATI’s 4870 X2 card, it’s no wonder the green camp are bristling a little. However, all is not lost if you are an nVidia fan boy, they do have one hell of a hefty card that’s supposed to be hot on the heels of ATI’s top dog. Perhaps with some overclocking we could coax enough performance out of it to take back the crown? Today I’m testing out XFX’s GTX 280 card, and it’s a monster.
