I will be the 2nd to admit that the first thing I was drawn to was the shiny true copper

So I've been pretty quiet around these forums for the past twelve months. Nvidia's first-generation GF100 Fermi architecture came and went, from March 2010 and onwards. Product cycles were fulfilled across all market segments, consumers were consuming, enthusiasts were being enthusiasts, and product managers were striving to squeeze every last ounce of marketing out of the Fermi lineup as they saw appealing.

But it wasn't enough for some of us. The first-generation GF100 was plagued with low wafer yields, leaky power transistors and low clockspeed gains followed by a rugged thermal dynamics with inadequate heatsink ventilation. Nvidia was trying too hard at its own game, striving to work against the grain of TSMC's supply chain and engineering an overcrowded architecture outside of its competitive means. The final result was a generation of products with an uncertain future, with a composition that required not only a metal-layer respin, but a base-layer respin that took nearly six months to complete.

Today, it's time for me to break the silence. The time has come for a new generation of Dual-GPU extreme enthusiast SLI configurations based on a revised 40nm architecture so dense with positive characteristics and performance gains that even leaked Chinese benchmarks won't do these cards any justice.

Earlier this afternoon, I received a long-anticipated EVGA GeForce GTX 590 Classified Quad-SLI Bundle Pack from EVGA. The cards were just installed, and my machine was just massively reconfigured with four 8-pin PCI-E power cables flowing hundreds of watts into these power-hungry GPUs. Now, the cards could have been in my possession on launch-day, seeing that EVGA is not far from my residence in Southern California, but shipping procedure states that the cards need to be shipped out and given tracking numbers. Regardless, I am INCREDIBLY excited to have this extreme Nvidia 40nm GF110 Quad-SLI configuration in my possesion, and after many months of waiting, the dream has finally become a reality. This is by far one of the best spring breaks I've ever had.

Benchmarks in the morning! cool.gif \m/

Dude they are sick. if you intend to use air to cool these beasts I would take then apart and put some top of the line TIM on them, factory TIM is way terrible .... I bet you pick up 4 C on each one.

How about some clocks and temps ???

and possibly run run and then both so we can see hopw quad SLI is scaling

With special edition cards such as this they tend to use top of the line TIM - (6990 they use an "exotic TIM") - on these they use Shin-Etsu MicroSi X23-7762. - there has already been benches done with Quad-SLI on these, they are unfortunately using beta drivers, and most games don't seem to scale all that well yet, hopefully it will get better as things go on.

I still have the plastic wrapping on the mousepad. Those are reflections from the surrounding environment. You scared me for a second there.
