What’s that? A single PCB GTX 295?

What’s that? A single PCB GTX 295?

EVGA's single PCB GTX 295 that I didn't take a picture of. Or, claimed to... *whistles*

COMPUTEX 2009: “We’re just taking a photo of the waterblock, honest”, although it just happened to be that the single PCB GTX 295 was sitting right above it and I zoomed out... sorry, EVGA!

EVGA told bit-tech the current GTX 295 was a nightmare to manufacture, but that the updated one is both easier, and cheaper to create thanks to using only a single PCB, which should also mean it gets a bit more price competitive with the HD 4870 X2.

The new model still uses an 8-pin and 6-pin power plug, and EVGA is gearing up a watercooled "Hydro Copper" version as well as a standard air-cooled board too. The waterblock has been customied for EVGA - inside there are dozens of little "E"s in the EVGA font to agitate the waterflow!

EVGA claims it’ll be available very shortly, but it won’t have any more memory or higher clocks than the GTX 295s already on the market – but that might not rule out pre-overclocked options, depending on how effective the new cooling hardware is.

Fancy a new single PCB 295? Perhaps you’re gagging for a watercooled one? Let us know your thoughts in the forums.

Seems like someone took a closer look (and photos), so never you mind. Seriously, who's to blame for all the grease marks on such a lovely card?

Mars wins, but it's not a singlepcb design, so no-no for F@H, while the new 295 with single pcb is singleslot with watercooling, mean 6/7 of these on P6T6/7 :O Instead of 3 max.
But sure, for gaming Mars>regular 295.

Supposing you had the cash and a large enough power supply you could effectively run 7 GTX 295's on the P6T7 mobo!

These are still dual slot cards, however you could still plug them in with the use of these

It has actually be done, cant find the picture (this is with the old 295's bare in mind)

Once its on a single pcb you will be able to water cool it with a single slot waterblock similar to the one for the GTX 260

2x some 1.3kW PSUs would be enough. I think..

Smart to play with shades, they shield your eyes from the monitors harsh light - increasing the play time substantially.
So much for thinking, once again.
