GTX590 vs GTX580 3GB - Page 5

post #41 of 49
I also notice that the OP has a GTX590 in his sig.

You could try your card in his rig to see if the heat/performance is what you are looking for, its always nice to "try before you buy" if you have the opportunity!

I'm not sure why anyone didn't bother to even read this thread before posting useless info.

1. The OP said it was a rig for his friend.
2. The OP said his friend is going to run a single for 3D Vision at least he didn't say 3D Surround so I might be assuming here.

IF it was 3D vision your pointless AMD suggestions or comparisons are not valid as Nvidia is the only clear choice for 3D Vision gaming/movies.

3. His questions was very specific to GTX 590 vs GTX 580 3GB. It was not a general question. He posted in the correct Nvidia section to boot and was not seeking AMD products. Which are great products but that wasn't being questioned or sought.

This argument isn't being productive to the OP's question. Start a new thread that pertains to it if you must continue.

Siince it's obvious some didn't take the time to read the thread let me repost the OP's qoutes below.

Thought I should make it easy for you guys if you want to compare GPU vs GPUs ..
In fact the two 6870 beats the 580

Previously stated, the orginal debatee was woefully mis-informed...

Instead of just reading reviews take a look around hwbot or something where the users are maxing the hardware out as much as possible.
A few reviewers say the 6870s are faster, for actual users the single 580 is quite a ways ahead in benchmarks.

Benching may not be the same as gaming, but for straight up performance...

Because everyone plays games for hours on end with one hand, whilst the other tops up the LN2 pot?

Ln2 makes it easy, I was looking at the single 580s on air & water beating 2 x 6870s.
I did point out that I look at the benching side of things, not being a gamer.

Well, this is a fun thread.

6870s are better than a single 580.

SLI 580s > CFX 6870s, a 590, CFX 6970s, CFX 6950s, SLI 570s, SLI 560s

1920x1080 does need 2 or 3 GPUs in some games to get achievable performance.

120 Hz monitors benefit from having 120 FPS, believe it or not, and Vsync On can be a number greater than 60 Hz. Did you kids not have CRTs growing up?!!?!?

3D Vision at HIGH resolutions 5760x1080 needs the 3GB of ram, 2D Surround can run just fine in 5760x1080, even sometimes up to 8xAA. All depends on the game. There are only like 4 that go above 1.5GB at higher than 2560x1600 resolution.

FOR Pure performance right at the box, 580 SLI is the way to go.

For good excellent performance right at the box, 590 is a very easy, clean, quiet way to go.

AMD's camp doesn't offer 3D Vision.

Wisdomz. I needs more of this.

Jealousiez. People who know how to maximize performance have respect. People who don't know that HWBot consists of anything from no cooling, to liquid Helium cooling would do better by visiting them.
