From TrustedReviews:

The GeForce GTX 295, which uses two graphics chips working together in a single package, was nVidia's first commercially available graphics card to use chips built on a 55nm manufacturing process. Previous cards from nVidia had all been built using a 65nm process so in relative terms they were more power hungry, ran hotter, and were more costly to produce. So, all told, this new manufacturing process was quite an exciting proposition.

However, the GTX 295 costs around £500 and is somewhat over powered for many of us - not to mention the whole 'SLI on a card' thing can still be somewhat temperamental. So, what we've really been waiting for is for nVidia to release cards based on chips built using the same smaller manufacturing process but with just one chip per card. In other words, we've been waiting for the card I'm looking at today, the GTX 285.
