Viewed 25k+ times. Talk about the power of the media...
2 reviewer's card blew from what I know... plus end users don't have them yet so just wait as see...

As for the "new drivers for the win" people... all the new drivers do is throttle the card when it hits the OCP limit.

Again, with the new drivers your choices are 1) leave OCP on and cripple your overclock or 2) manually disable it and pray your the card's crappy VRMs don't burn...

There is a reason why there is a limit. If a GTX 590 is capable of 170Mhz extra overclock without blowing up. That's a 28% overclock and is actually much better than what I expected for this card. That's on stock cooling BTW. That's much better than what my GTX 480 did on stock cooling.

Quie a few, actually.

lol i really dont see the point of these dual gpu cards when nowadays they get to be so big and run hot/loud. I would much rather have sli/xfire than either of these cards.


looks like these people went a little too far on the o/c unless im mistaken

Well, 170MHz more shouldn't even count as an overclock... That is getting it to the stock 580 clock lol. That is just reversing their underclock and shouldn't be impressive at all.

Here is a overclcoked GTX 590 to the max without voltage I guess? vs a overclocked 6990. Both were overclcoked to their limits.

705Mhz vs 945Mhz I believe. I wish they would have tested more games though

So how does our experience with the overclock and new drivers affect our feelings on the value of the GTX 590? Earlier we stated that it was a card which felt a little overpriced, the performance was not quite there and driver issues in games such as Shogun 2 took the shine off the card a little. With the latest driver and running at the maximum performance when compared with the 6990 we are happy to report that the GTX 590 now feels a lot more like it is priced appropriately. We get exceptional performance, improved drivers, cooler operation than the competition, significantly quieter operation too... and of course all the benefits of surround gaming, 3D Vision, PhysX and CUDA.

Maybe the average card will clock like that and maybe it won't... We have to wait for end users to get the cards and test them before we really can state something like that. I will just say that Anandtech already has reported throttling in their review at 750Mhz... and at those clocks it still loses to the 6990 in a several games.

However, the thing is... even if Nvidia can sucessfully keep the cads alive via a current limit on new drivers -- that DOES NOT excuse them for using a poor quality, 4+1 VRM set up on their flagship card. It is unacceptable, and I think that is the main reason people are giving Nvidia a rough ride.

People talk about AMD rushing out the 6990, these 590s should have never left the building with this as a possibility.
if this is true then they just might be recycling the GTX295 build..for them to be able to sell these like cake..am no fanboy or anything but it seems Grunion is right..they should have checked it for "Leaks" before saying its final..well same goes with AMD(6990 warranty issues and the limit to its OCing potential) well they were seem to be hyped with the current market thats why they both raced to which one come's out clean..in the end the Dragon still roared..

well regardless whether they know these issues or not leaves them at fault for their product to FAIL big time..
