Nvidia has today released the GeForce GTX 285, a card it claims is the world's fastest single GPU graphics card.

Normally, we'd have a review online for your viewing pleasure, but we're working through a couple of issues that we hope to get to the bottom of in the next few hours, so stay tuned for our review either later today or first thing in the morning.

The card was unveiled for the first time at CES although the clock speed information we had wasn't final at that point.

It's based on the enhanced 55nm GT200b core that's also featured in the GeForce GTX 295.

Nvidia has set the GTX 285's core, shader and memory clocks to 648MHz, 1,476MHz and 2,484MHz (effective) respectively - this translates into a ten percent performance increase almost right across the board (when GPU limited) compared to a reference clocked GeForce GTX 280 in our games test suite.

Pricing is expected to hit around the £300 to £320 mark, but we haven't had final confirmation yet - check your favourite retailer for the latest pricing and stay tuned for our comprehensive review a little later. In the meantime, feel free to discuss the announcement in the forums.
