They made a cheap solution to their VRM design taking up too much space on the pcb and Nvidia wanted it as small as possible.

We know what voltages the 110 can handle with the 580 out in the wild so long. We also see the effects of less phases with the GTX 570.

The GF110 can suck massive amounts of power therefore NV has to limit it through software which is where the drivers come in due to the hardware. Hardware wise the 590's vrm's will try to pump what the GF110 is asking for but they just can't handle it.

IMO, if the engineers would have made the pcb a tad bit longer and kept a 6+2 phase design for each core and memory then a 1 phase for the NV200 bridge chip the GTX 590 could have been the champ all around.

Can't wait to see some custom pcb designs that incorporate a more powerful vrm setup.


Anyone that says it's completely a driver issue is a moron. The only reason the driver is a issue is because the hardware is the issue. But to stay in specs they had to hinder the hardware in some way shape or form.

I really do wanna buy one just to play with, but it doesn't make much sense due to them being so limted imo, even for us users with GTX 480's we can SLI and hit/beat the performance of a GTX 590.
+rep bro - my thoughts exactly. Nvidia dropped the ball with the 4 VRM's, I don't think people would've cared if the card was slightly longer.

That's far enough. I thought we were capable of civilized discussion about this matter but I guess not. Closed.
