GeForce GTX 280 compatibility review

Overall, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 280 has good performance. This is perfectly acceptable for a mid-range dedicated graphics card. This graphics card is now over 8 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. The driver support for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 280 is now fairly poor, so don't count on any new game optimizations. You may also encounter more and more graphical oddities as newer games are released.

With an effective SPU count of 332, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 280 processes shading and special graphical effects competently. The GPU is quite power-hungry at 236 Watts, however.
