SLi eVGA GTX 470SC to eVGA GTX 590 - worth the upgrade? - Page 3

post #21 of 39
My reference to the vrm problem was the lack thereof, ragincains 590s only did 730 core before he traded them in for a 6990+6970.

He had some problems with his too, pretty sure he had to rma them.

Is there a test 590s do well in?

If you read the entire thread...It wasn't exactly a VRM problem why he traded them in...

The 590 is a quirky card with a metric ton of driver issues because it's Nvidia's red-headed stepchild.

Hardware wise, the VRM's are actually among the highest quality that Nvidia ever used HOWEVER, and this is a big HOWEVER, they're no utilized properly so...They're easily overloaded...This is something the MARSII actually corrects...But, Nvidia was so butthurt Asus did it on their own, they were denied the 590 title.

That being said, the 590 performs well in 3dMark...Ungine...Are a couple...Heaven's dual GPU problems have been noted since it's release so, it's not anything new.

We should be correcting misinformation, not spreading it rampantly, regardless of how "true" it is on the internet or not.

The highest single 590 score in 3DMark11 on a i5-2500k is 11087, that's at 705 core.

My 470's reached a score of 12055, at 900 core.

Unless you can produce a higher gpu score, I will stand by my rational that the 590 is a sidegrade in performance to 470 SLI. 470's on water would actually be a downgrade in performance to the 590.

The 470 in this test does @ 5.9-6.2 FPS...SLI and overclocked, maybe 10//11...The overclocked 590 does @ 14-14.5 ~

If I had my card, I'd give you the exact numbers but, the above chart by Techpowerup looks nearly identical to my review chart and that's "our" personal overclocking results..

If you were arguing about the 570, we'd have a discussion but the 470? No.

When I get my card back, I'll more than happily prove you're incorrect...Easily and handily

I await the day you can justify the $400 cost to upgrade to the 590 for the performance gain it brings.

470s:


590:


590 is slower by,

10.2% in test 1

12.8% in test 2

11.8% in test 3

10.6% in test 4

At these clocks.

On 285.38 no wonder...That driver specifically actually degraded performance thus why no actual 590 owners use it.

Thanks for the laugh

I'll have some real results for you tomorrow

When you submit your results shoot me a PM.

Edit:

Don't feel bad Masked, 470's beat the 6990 too

I didn't mean that as offensively as it comes off...My laughing is more of an inside joke than anything...I apologize that it comes off that way.

We have 6 in the office and that driver has caused a new form of havoc in this office + I had to re-install my OS last night because of it.

I do know that the 470's beat the 6990's...From our tests, when the 590 is OC'd properly, they are "better".

I can't justify the price difference, I'll be straight up with you...The 470's are a better deal.

I'm more about clearing up the misinformation.

To be 100% with you, I'm going to feel out how EVGA feels about my OCing this 590 before I do it because this is my 3rd due to a faulty Classified 3 Motherboard...

TLDR, I'll have results for you tomorrow, be they stock or OC'd.

So a 200mhz adantage gained you 10% over the 590. Is the OP running his cards at 900? I just don't understand where this is going.
