    Interesting...but I fear it is going to cost a bit too much for my budget.

    Still, better performance, and lower heat emissions are very good news. The art on the card is not that bad either !

    won't it cost lest due to the smaller manufacturing process....?

    Probably for them. For the end-user, price drops aren't so likely. :(

    Depends on what yields are like on the new process, too. Better yields might mean price drops...

    No it's actually faster than the old 280GTX, the GT versions are usually slower.

    let's see: costs less to manufacture, looks like a cheaper heatsink, just like 55nm gtx260 and higher clock speed.

    so nVidia jacks up this gtx285 price due to higher clock speed, while the card is cheaper to manufacture. seems like win-win for nVidia.

    come on ATI, bring us something like 4970 1GB to make this drop within acceptable price range.

    hmm.... $450 for 295 or $400 (can't be less.... can it?) for 285.

    sounds like a no brainer for me.

    unless this comes out in $350........




    man i remember buying a geforce ti4400 for roughly that price range.
