Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 285 sales 23 December 2008 at a recommended price of $359. This is Tesla 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 55 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 1 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.24 GHz are supplied, and together with 512 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 159.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 10.5" (267 mm) (26.7 cm). 2x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 204 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at

5.17%

of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.
