The card itself is generic in design. BFG's fancy artwork and OC sticker on the fan make it look more custom than it is. We doubt that any NVIDIA partner will release a custom-cooled solution within the next few weeks, as supply of reference-based cards is already constricted.
Retailing as an OC Edition, clocks have been boosted from the default 633MHz/1,404MHz/2,268MHz to 648/1,440/2,304MHz for the core, shader and GDDR3 memory, respectively. The frequency gains are minor - 2.3 per cent at best - so we expect performance to fall in line with the reference card.
The relatively low overclock paves the way for BFG's higher-specified SKUs such as OC2 and OCX at a future date, no doubt.
Feeling flush? A single card costs around £230, but you can add up to two more for three-way SLI.
Two six-pin PCIe power-connectors are required to provide the ~180W peak board power load, making it no different than GeForce GTX 260 and GTX 285 in that respect.
A GeForce GTX 275 is a GeForce GTX 275 is a GeForce GTX 275, from outward appearances at least.
