Today marks the launch of a pair of new video cards from NVIDIA. The first announcement to grace my inbox this morning was for the ASUS ENGTX280 carrying a MSRP of $649. The GTX 280 becomes the new NVIDIA flagship card sitting above the 9800 GX2 in performance.
The ASUS GTX 280 has 1GB of GDDR3 memory and will be available to purchase starting tomorrow. The card also ships with the ASUS GamerOSD for overclocking during game play allowing users to get more performance from the card when it is needed the most.
The card also includes a new version of SmartDoctor that allows users to overclock the shader clock on the GPU along with the engine clock for the card. Check back later today for our own review of the XFX GTX 280 video card.
