Disappointed with gtx590 - Page 7

post #61 of 72
Thread Starter 

Removed the big boy and put the 580 back on already.
I got that psu when it was on sale. Very quiet, will live with it 'til I'm ready for sli or something. Because if I upgrade it now, I guess it won't change anything for me.

here is my 2nd utube video with the 580. PERFECT on everythings. idle in the 40s, 71*c loaded. fps can get up to 100 no problem

I saw Nvidia representatives testing a 590 in a video and they even said the cards were running at 93c and that was an expected result.

I don't see how the 590 is especially made for higher res. It if was it wouldn't have 1.5GB of memory. Not really impressive considering there's already quite a few games going above 1GB at 1080p.

Just a thought.

You were either experiencing screen tearing...or just those wonderful issues that Crysis 2 has. I'll keep the rest of my Crysis 2 comments out of here though.

Dual GPU cards almost always tend to have issues like this. This is why I personally always stick to a single GPU system. Never have any problems this way.

How true. History keeps repeating itself. Compared to their bread n butter cards both companies work less on drivers and performance to clear up dual GPU issues because it pales in comparison in sheer numbers to single GPU owners.

The 580/560 or the 6970/6950 cards outweigh importance over dual GPU owners and focus is on the majority not the minority. It's always been the case that dual GPU owners have less performance boosts and driver improvements than single GPU owners with two single cards.

Unless your restricted to one PCIe slot, can't afford two or don't want to sandwich two together in SLI/Crossfire without space in between then there is no reason to buy dual when you'll get better performance with two of their single counter parts.

As for the OP, at this point you'll need to upgrade to a 120Hz monitor, buy some Nvidia 3D glasses and your money won't be wasted on a single 60hz monitor where you not going to get close to full potential due to your limiting factors.

I just went 3D with just one GTX 580 and it's awesome fun, it's like your inside the game yourself. Pretty submersive not to mention 3D movies are cool to watch every now and again.

If not a 120hz monitor get a second 60Hz at least and enjoy wide screen 2D gaming. Everyone likes over kill here but it's got to at least produce higher end results or your just throwing away your money without anything to show for it.

The 590 has 3GB of memory. Either there are no bandwidth restrictions due to the GPUs being on the same PCB and can share the same memory, or each one of them has 3GB of its own. They wouldn't market it as a 3GB card if it couldn't access 3GB of memory. Same for the 6990 and its 4GB.

The 590 has 3GB of memory mirrored. Just like the 6990 has 4GB of memory mirrored. Since these are both dual GPU cards, that means each card only has 1/2 that memory per GPU. Since its SLI / Crossfire on one board, that means you still only get the amount of memory per one GPU, since its mirrored.

As such, the 590 has 1.5GB of USEABLE memory, and the 6990 has 2GB of USEABLE memory.

The 3GB 590 and 4GB 6990....those are just marketing numbers. That's like saying if I SLI'd my 580 with another one, I'd magically have 3GB of useable vRAM. And that's just not the way it works.

Yes, I know you can't share memory in SLI mode, but really? That's a lousy way of doing business.
