We pack three GTX 285s into our test bed and see how Tri-SLI is running these days with the latest NVIDIA card.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285 in Tri-SLI Tested

 

Introduction

 

Unlike the GTX 295, we can install three of the GTX 285 cards into a compatible system and what you essentially end up with is three cores. And while this is less cores than a Quad-SLI GTX 295 setup which only offers two cards but a grand total of four GPUs, the performance on a GTX 285 is superior to a single core on the GTX 295.

 

With the help of Inno3D, ASUS and GIGABYTE, today we'll be having a look at how a Tri-SLI setup performs and what kind of performance improvements we get as we slot in not only a second card, but a third.

 

Looking over at Newegg, you can pick up the ASUS ENGTX285 for $399.99 at the moment, with the other two being similarly priced. Obviously times this by three to end up with your Tri-SLI setup.

 

Since we've looked at two of the three cards already, with the ASUS scheduled for a better look sometime next week, we won't go into any detail on the particular brands of cards we're looking at today.

 

With everything said and done, let's have a look at the test system and a closer look at the GPU-Z information we have on hand to make sure everything is working. Then there's only one thing to do and that's to benchmark the cards through our real world and synthetic games and applications.
