I was excited that Inno3D was sending a GTX 285, this mainly due to the fact that it was going to give me the second piece to my three piece SLI setup I wanted. The thing is, though, once the card had arrived and I had ripped open the boring brown box, I was surprised to see the word overclock present on the front of the box.
Overclocked cards at launch don't tend to happen too much, but there's no doubt companies have had the GTX 285 for a while now and have been able to do a bit of tweaking to find out just what kind of clocks can be achieved. Inno3D was able to do this; create a BIOS, do up the packaging and pimp the card out with a blingy sticker all in time for launch.
If the GTX 285 is a 55nm overclocked GTX 280, then what is a GTX 285 overclocked? Well, ultimately it's a really high overclocked GTX 280 and you know what? That's great!
If this wasn't enough already, Inno3D manage to put together a kick ass package that includes two full version games, something that more and more companies are choosing to ignore these days.
The Inno3D GTX 285 is a great card and is a bit faster than the stock offering. If that wasn't enough for you to buy it, though, the two full version games in the package should be an extra incentive.
