[EN] NVIDIA's dual-GPU GeForce GTX 590 emerges, can't slay the Radeon HD 6990 titan - Page 19

post #181 of 458




good news for me since 1200p 4xAA is pretty much all I ever use, now If I have the money to go multi monitor sometime in the future (not soon lol, I'm half broke after buying this) I guess I'll just buy a new card...

The hardware Canucks review shows the GTX 590 winning at extreme resolutions with and without AA

The 6990 however seems to win at the 2560 resolution which is not really a 3 monitor resolution

Oh man, the fact that AMD made a really good dual gpu card is going to take a huge amount of spanking from Nvidia Fanboys

I use AMD & Nvidia cards and couldn't be happier! I'm totally lost on what to decide... and that's good! Finally some AMD fightback!

Odd I just factually bought a GTX590 for Exactly 431 Pounds at today's extrange rate from Newegg.

So they trade blows. Cool more competition I still think that single gpu is better than multi (at least from my expiriences with a 4870x2)

You get the stuff cheaper in the US than in Europe and specifically in the UK. Doing your conversion just makes it more painful for the rest of us this side of the pond I paid 400 pounds for a 580GTX a month ago!

This one?

The 6690 loses in pretty much everything with no AA. With AA it really wins in metro 2033 unfortunatelly it's still not playable at 21 fps. Then on the other 2 benchmarks there is a 1-4 fps difference

Here is another review with extreme resolutions. Be advised that results are different according to the game tested. For example Hard OCP seem to have used all the games that favor the 6990

http://www.hardwareheaven.com/review...roduction.html

If you look at this review. It has a good mix. In some games the 6990 owns the GTX 590 and in some the GTX 590 owns the 6990

However I would have to say that there most likely are some driver issues on both sides for certain games. With that being said. I wouldn't say that the memory on the 6990 has a huge advantage for triple monitor setups at extreme resolutions

I seem to remember you claiming that the GTX 590 should provide a smoother experience even though it's slower?

Well from these results I say the 6990 is smoother







Review

While there's no denying the average frame rates are to close to call either card a winner the minimum frames show a much bigger difference. The graphs show the 6990 to be more consistent and smoother then the GTX 590.

NOTE : In the review they didn't use the overclock switch for the 6990 so with the switch enabled performance is going to be higher.

The 6990 is better but the 590 is a beast. Both AMD and Nvidia have some very impressive offerings these days.

Touche, you are correct there with these prices...If I could get a straight answer on 4Way SLI I would have bought 2.

Coming from the SLI GTX285's and skipping generations I think I'll be quite happy with performance:

My Main Apps:
Unity3
Cinema 4D
Rift
Crysis2 - pending purchase(might as well since I got the card lol)

Benches:
I'm not as worried about any 5% or 10% there in relation to early bench's, comparing 6990 with more mature drivers against early GTX590 drivers nd stock clocks which are miles apart.

I look forward to doing my own. For my 30" Cinema Monitor this 590 should be great. And may down the road lead me to Water not if / but when it comes out...

I almost said screw it and purchased 2 of the Pre-Water built 580's.
