GeForce GTX 386 for MacPro

Confirming earlier reports, EVGA on Tuesday launched the GeForce GTX 285 Mac Edition graphics card which offers similar features to the Windows variant. The accessory supports single or dual displays with resolutions up to 2560x1600, while providing 1GB of DDR3 memory and 240 processing cores. EVGA has designed the component for improved graphics-intensive operations such as gaming, motion graphics, 3D modeling, rendering and animation. Users can connect the displays to two dual-link DVI-I ports.

The GTX 285 integrates NVIDIA's second-generation Unified Architecture, along with PureVideo HD and CUDA technology which allows CPU processes to be offloaded to the GPU cores. The company lists a core clock speed of 648MHz, while memory speed reaches 2484MHz with 159GB/s of memory bandwidth. The device connects to a PCI Express 2.0 port, although the double-wide form factor will cover another spot.

The GTX 285 requires a Mac Pro from early 2008 or early 2009 with 1066MHz DDR3 or 800MHz DDR2 support. Customers can purchase the GTX directly from Apple's online store for $450.
