The ASUS Matrix GTX 285/HTDI/1GD3/A card is an interesting beast of a card. With a lower default clock you would expect performance of the card to be lower than the other cards I've tested, but this was not the case. The card scored nearly the same as the other GTX285s, besting them in some, losing by a small margin in other tests. The card overclocks well, going past 735MHz for the core totally stable. ASUS has done a masterful job with their MATRIX card with a good bundle, good overclocking and the extra features they offer with every product. This product is a Hot Product for those reasons. Of course one can't ignore the fact that Windows 7 is about to be released with DirectX 11, but for now the GeForce GTX285 is the fastest single chip card from either side.
