Early GTX 295 benchmarks

Early benchmarks have been produced for NVIDIA's upcoming GTX 295 video card, a Chinese website claims. Although the card is expected to officially debut in January, IT168 says it has already managed to find figures pitting the GTX 295 against AMD's similar Radeon HD4870 X2. The 295 is depicted as universally faster, as much as 100 percent in games like Dead Space. In some cases the improvement is marginal; Far Cry 2, for example, is said to be only 15 percent faster.

The benchmarks also purport to show less power consumption, and a significant benefit from PhysX physics acceleration, which is not natively supported by AMD cards; the company instead supports the Havok format. The GTX 295 is believed to combine two GPUs into a single card, using a 55nm manufacturing process. Some other rumored specifications include a 896-bit memory bus, hosting roughly 1.8GB of RAM.
