The first thing we have to say is that it was so good of GIGABYTE to increase the core clock to compensate for the drop in memory clock. We have to admit that the OC naming is a bit of a stretch, but at the end of the day it is overclocked and it should be advertised like that, so we really can't have a go at GIGABYTE about that.
Performance is good; we're not sure how much the extra memory helps, which isn't anything new. The biggest appeal about having a 2GB graphics card isn't the performance, but the fact that you can tell people you have one. Sure, it's superficial, but that's the world we live in.
As far as the bundle goes, it's very GIGABYTE. While there isn't anything that really stands out, there is everything we need. So again, it's not something we can really complain about. All in all we've got a pretty mean card on our hands that packs some good performance and when it comes to a graphics card, there isn't a whole lot more you can ask for.
If you're looking for a GTX 285 that packs some extra memory while offering slightly better performance the GIGABYTE 2GB GTX 285 OC model we have here today is pretty impressive. At 399.99 U.S. Dollars over at Newegg, you're paying more than the 1GB model by about $80. While not worth it to some, others are going to be more than happy to spend the extra dollars to get a 2GB GTX 285 that packs some extra performance.
