My friend who is testing the GTX590 says it won't overclock that well ... he's at 770Mhz at 1.00v and the scores are bad ... something is throttling the power down ... maybe those "security measures" that ATI drivers have or something ... but basically ... overclocking the card isn't getting really great results gains ! :x

Mehhhhhhh ... sucky sucky five dollah ! :x

Do you expect anything different from that scenario?

Dare you to try that with a 6990 and youtube it, too.
You gonna send me the 6990, then?

With regard to the cards blowing up...well, nVidia probably envisaged the card being clocked up to GTX570 levels (732MHz) or perhaps up to GTX580 levels (772MHz). The former would leave it right between the top two cards, while the latter would give basically GTX580 SLI on a single card.

However, since GTX580s can also be overclocked, they will always be beyond what a GTX590 can achieve, and that probably rings true even under water. I suspect that the overvolt failures might not directly be due to heat, but due to the too-high voltage causing the component(s) to fail and short, since the circuitry should have thermal shutdown capability.

Obviously the overvolt protection isn't working - is 1.2V common when overclocking GPUs?
About the overvolt protection, newer drivers are "solving" the issue, so it might have the protection. Yeah it is on par with 5970... but wait my 5970 runs rock solid @1000Mhz (1.2239v, also do 940Mhz @1.625 5870s default voltage) on core and @1250 on memory (could push it even higher before DDR5 starts backfiring but I use 1250 with 1.1v vs the 1.15v used in the stock 5870s and the performance diference is irrelevant so for the sake of safety i'm with "only" 1250Mhz). And that my friend is a huge 38% (@1Ghz) overclock in core clocks and 25% in memory clocks (in.... is this the right preposition here? Sorry for typos rusty english and no spell check)

Seeing as you can't OC-volt them and some are frying at stock clocks, yea... so much for the 590.

you can oc/volt them. drivers seem to possibly be the cause. also no card has fried at stock volts that i am aware of. the 37 second video that was referred to earlier was with 1.2v and not stock volts.

it just came out today. 11.4 drivers really awaken the 6990. give the same chance to the 590.

microwave generation......i swear.

edit: update on the 590 that blew

We got an e-mail from a reader that a GeForce GTX 590 BYHD (Burn Your House Down) Edition was released by SweClockers, so we did a little searching and found out what they were talking about. It appears that some of the first NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 video cards to ship come with Forceware 267.52 drivers and they don't prevent the card from overheating when overclocked. The folks over at SweClockers cranked up the clock frequency and video taped the carnage. We didn't have this problem with 267.71 drivers we used for testing or the new 267.84 drivers that came out today. It was one year ago to the month that NVIDIA had a fan issue with Forceware 196.75 drivers that killed a number of video cards! DéjÃ* vu!

Techpowerup was using the correct 267.71 drivers: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/sh...&postcount=110

I'd think the fewer VRMs than dual 580s might have something to do with it irregardless if it tries to downclock at the power limit.
