NVIDIA GTX 295 Benchmarks Tip Up and Look Suspicious

I talked a bit about the GTX 295 video card rumored to be launching at CEs 2009 in a few weeks. The card is claimed to have dual GPUs like the previous GX2 video cards NVIDIA has marketed. Details were sketchy at the time, and still are.

A website called IT168 has got its hands on an early sample of the GTX 295 and posted what it claims to be early benchmarks of the card. Many are calling BS on the benchmarks for one reason or another. Mostly the claims come from the fact that the benchmark slides look virtually identical to the slides NVIDIA likes to offer in press briefings.

Having sat through many NVIDIA briefings, I can say they look a lot like NVIDIA slides and the card pictured certainly looks like a NV reference design. My money says someone sat through an NVIDIA pre-CES press brief and then leaked the slides provided claiming them to be their own numbers.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
