EVGA Releases GTX 275 FTW Edition, Faster Than GTX 280 FTW

50°
276w ago - EVGA released its fresh new Geforce GTX 275 FTW Edition 896-P3-1173-AR graphics card, which marks a significant achievement in the competitive GTX 275 lineup from various manufacturers for its superior clock speeds and its relatively competitive pricing.

Not surprisingly, the EVGA Geforce GTX 275 For The Win is officially the fastest GTX 275 card to date, with clock speeds of a 713MHz core, 1512MHz shaders, and 896MB of 512-bit GDDR3 memory at 2520MHz.

Unfortunately, this model does not come with double memory chips for a 1792MB configuration, but the frequencies of its GPU do bring up an interesting observation. When compared with the Geforce GTX 280 FTW Edition that launched in June 2008 at 670/1458/2430, the new GTX 275 FTW with the lower model number actually has faster overall clock speeds.

In terms of theoretical performance at factory overclocked memory speeds, the 55nm GTX 275 FTW gives roughly 141.12GB/s of memory bandwidth on a 448-bit interface, while the 65nm GTX 280 FTW gives 155.52GB/s on a 512-bit interface. It is also important to note that the 55nm GTX 285 FTW Edition expectedly still tops both models with roughly 177.4GB/s on a 512-bit interface.

Overall, it seems apparent that memory performance of remains linearly consistent throughout Nvidia's GTX 200-series...

250°
279w ago - Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Ultimate Edition Senior Development Director David Seeholzer announced that the Ultimate Edition Demo hit PSN today.

To quote: I'm excited to let you know that our single player demo for the Ultimate Edition is available over at the PlayStation Store right now! So go start your downloads...go ahead, I'll still be here when you get back ;-)

The demo contains 2 campaign missions and a tutorial that will get you accustomed to playing RA3 on your PS3. The first campaign mission comes from the Soviet campaign; mission "Krasna 45," the second mission of the Soviet campaign, which we recommend you play first.

You are sent in to reclaim a derelict soviet base in order to intercept an Empire of the Rising Sun force en route to Moscow.





The other mission is "Heidelberg,"the third mission in the Allied campaign, which we recommend you play second overall. In Heidelberg, the Soviets have been pushed back to their headquarters and players will need to turn the tide of the battle by sneaking into their base, forcing them all the way back to Siberia. Both these missions feature co-op gameplay with an A.I. co-commander who will support you as well as follow your orders.

As I mentioned...

Hi all, my name is David Seeholzer and I am the Senior Development Director for Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Ultimate Edition. You might be asking yourself why we are calling it the 'Ultimate Edition' of Red Alert 3.

I wanted to share some insight into the cool extras and bonus content we are making exclusive for you guys, as well as shed a little light on the development process and our future plans for the title on PS3.

Check out the Red Alert 3 page on the PS Store for the Ultimate Edition Theme and our first sneak peak trailer of the PS3 version.





Red Alert found its humble beginnings over a decade ago on PC and has since seen 2 sequels, several expansion packs, and now, is making its debut on the PS3 console. Fortunately the power of the PS3 and the Blu-ray medium has afforded us some extra luxuries that weren't available to us previously.

The most noticeable difference you'll see in the Ultimate Edition on PS3 is an increase the visual quality of the game so that it truly stands up to HD Blu-ray definition. A perfect example of this is what you will see in...
