Especially since asus claimed only hundreds would be available here in the US. What happens if you're one of the lucky ones to get a 590, and it blows up?

YAY Nvidia finally has a dual gpu card out XD LOL that one blew up tho. msi and asus will probs bring a better card out fairly soon i should think

in the race for the fastest single pcb video card the main two manufacturers have managed to create a small turbine engine with ear splitting volume and a voltage bomb ready to take the rest of your system with it. super work my friends. 580 SLI anyone ?

Dont really understand why do people keep going on about how gtx 590 has significantly lower clocks than 6990, and that also being the reason it performs slightly worse than amd? cards use different architecture, amd's arch allows for the card to be clocked higher and if u look in the past all amd/ati cards have always had higher clocks than nvidias cards. all graphics cards should be tested with stock clocks, as released by manufacturer imo.

W1zzard said somebody is working on a 3 8pin one with no power limiter and i bet it's ASUS so expect an ARES equivalent. Though it will probably carry a monster price tag. :/

I doubt MSI will do one like this though. Maybe a watercooled one but that's it.

I called it before the card came out: it's within the ballpark of the 6990, wins some but losses some as well. SLIGHTLY both positively and negatively both ways. With stock clocks. I don't like all the negativity is all because they aren't considering the whole picture in most of the reviews.
The negativity from some review sites is likely because 580 GPUs are faster than AMD's 6970 GPUs. Nvidia couldn't find a way to consistently best a 6990 despite using faster 580 GPUs in its 590.

This should not happen:



It is the potential of the 590 being the letdown more so than the results against the competitor. Perhaps people were hoping Nvidia could somehow keep power consumption and temps in check while giving near 580 SLI performance.

It seems that GTX 590 is approximately equal to HD6990

But when Nvidia has equal performance to an ATI at similar price, then nvidia card is better in my opinion because you have physx support, and you can enable GPU water simulation in Just Cause 2

So 3% slower relative performance at 2560x1600. That's worth it considering this

I mean comeon, Idle vs Max fan speed on the 590 was barely any louder. I'd run it at full almost all the time! I know my 5970 @ even 40-50% fan is a pain to listen to.

So in games that favour Nvidia cards it's slightly faster or on par with the 6990.

In every other game it gets hammered.

I've also noticed that very very little reviews don't use the 11.4 drivers which have been PROVEN in this very forum to be a MASSIVE improvement!

Nvidia = Owned
