We've spent several weeks with the EVGA GTX-280's we received some time ago. They've been productive weeks, full of testing, playing, and living with the EVGA GTX-280 in single card and SLI configuration and while we still have a lot of testing to do, we decided to go ahead with a Single card and SLI review. We're saving the Triple SLI review for a week or two and then we'll break it out with some of the hottest titles of the season in what's sure to be an SLI vs. Crossfire extravaganza of epic proportions.
We've got to tell you that there's a certain feeling that you get when you hold these monsters in your hand that's almost indescribable. Knowing that you are holding the fastest, most powerful single GPU video card in the world in your hand; with it straining to get into a machine and drive graphics like you've never seen before.
With the introduction of the new Nvidia 180.xx drivers offering better SLI support, we felt it important to review the beast in not only our normal fashion, but in SLI as well. In honor of its debut we spent days testing it and getting a feel for the 'King of Single GPU Cards'. We have to tell you, the King still rules.
