sli 580's vs 590 - Page 2

post #11 of 15
The 590, if you can overclock it to the stock clocks of the 580s or a little higher. But then again, you can get two 590s for less than four 580s.

580 hydro copper = $700
590 hydro copper = 880

what do you guys prefer.
get a 580 now and maybe throw another 580 later or just go with the 590. so hard to chose. cause 590 is still new and not much reviews on it. and what the f is 600mhz why so low?

Yeah it's been compared here GTX 580 SLI vs AMD 6990.

GTX 580 SLI > AMD 6990 = $1000 vs $700
GTX 570 SLI = AMD 6990 = $700 vs $700
AMD 6990 + AMD 6970 > GTX 580 SLI = $1000 vs $1000
GTX 580 TRI SLI > AMD 6990 Crossfire = $1500 vs $1400

Long drawn out thread. Got a lot of videos and benchmarks that prove it. No benchmarks on the GTX 590 yet but I'm sure real shortly.

The GTX 590 vs AMD 6990 = $700 vs $700 the fight soon at hand.

har.... if you are getting the GTX 590 you should have enough money to sli gtx 580s. If you dont have enough money and 800 is all you have left in your bank and you are spending it all on a video card you should not be buying a gtx 590 anyways. 'bang for buck' is not as important at this point anyways, just the matter of which gives more performance.

I've tried dual 5970s, and before that dual Nvidia 7900 GX2 (the prototype dual-GPU predecessor to the 7950 GX2.) I regret both decisions.

Go for the best single-GPU cards you can get, and then fit as many as them as you want in your system. If games run into problems with SLI / Crossfire you have the option of falling back to a still-powerful single-GPU setup.
