How well can the GeForce GTX 280 run games
13 Dec 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This GeForce GTX 280 graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements. DirectX 10 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 280 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 280 in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this GeForce GTX 280 graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 280? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce GTX 280? Then we would suggest getting a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, as it can run 893 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 374% increased graphics performance. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 280 then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB as this is better than 763 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 272% better performance as well.

GeForce GTX 280 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 280 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Tesla Architecture.


Architecture
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed G200-302-A2 which has 10 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 240 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 602MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 512-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1107MHz.


Features
DirectX 10.0 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.


Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 236W, it requires at least a 550W PSU and it requires at least two 6-pin available connectors.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with the lower positioned GeForce GTX 275.
It is therefore even faster than the Fermi based GeForce GTX 460 768MB.

I bought for my Xeon rig HD6770 1GB DDR5 DX11 Flex Edition for around 40 euro. I previously had GTX 295.. it was pain in the a*s. 90 degrees on games like euro truck 2. No dx11, bad driver support and very power hungry (i had to buy ocz 700w so i can use the card) I suggest u to go for something newer and cooler!

Pretty interesting to look back, and see how fast tech is developing. In 2009 this was the top, and oddly enough it's pricing was around the same of the CURRENT king of GPU's, the GTX 780ti. Although in terms of performance, mid range 150$ cards can demolish this former beast, and you can actually find 280s for under 50$ online :P. The only problem I see is that tech is advancing far far faster with each year, and soon we won't be able to keep up with the upgrades. High-class GPUs one year will be mid-level or even low in only a year or 2..

But why would you want to buy this today?It has a huge power consumption dx10,OpenGL2.0,Shader 4.0 etc it is not comparable to med-higher end cards of today since they have much better technology, so it's better to go for the latest range of nvidia or amd GPU's than this.

Perhaps because your Core Speed ​​and Memory Speed ​​smaller than those of the HD 6770 and because HD 6770 is DDR5.But I think it's your graphics card better than HD 6770th especially due to Memory Bandwidth. Sorry for bad english.:D

Definitely not choice for today..Huge power consumption like oven,DX10,OpenGL2.0,Shader 4.0.One should definitely go for newer no matter what.
