NVIDIA has lucratively employed their 55 nm production process for the GT200 GPUs resulting in the GTX 285. The card presents additional performance, consumes less power and is noiseless compared to the previous model. The clock increases output by about 5%, with the lead getting better at higher resolutions. NVIDIA switch-over to 55 nm allows roughly 10% in die production cost savings which gives them a clear advantage to compete against ATI products with price-cuts.
