On another note...
Curiosity has the better of me and I don't actually know/have this answer.
Under EVGA's new policy, is the 590 actually covered?


Great news bro... Again its not going to be anytime soon but one day i will be knocking on your door. I could even say hey build me something from scratch. If i didnt build my rig that i have now i would probably ask you to build me one. Maybe with custom case paint too drool.gif

Does having a PCI 3.0 mobo improve 590 performance?

This could mean you won't ever get any errors on it? But I mean who the sprinkles runs a foxconn motherboard with a GTX 590...?
It won't, sorry to disappoint you :\.
The next dual GPU cards will benefit a LOT though due to their increased power saturating a 16x PCIE 2.0 lane with two high-power GPUs.


Ah good than. My mobo is PCI 2.0 and i have my 590 on the 16x slot... But i will set my eyes on a PCI3 motherboard when the next dual GPU card arrives. I will probably purchase the next dual GPU card on release date.

Well seems like 590 is still the king thumbsupsmiley.png

 

680 performs 10% lower than 590 so far according to toms hardware benches.

 

I am falling in love with 590 more each day. Honestly.

I am sure 680 will oc better i have no doubt.. Still though if this is nvidias biggest weapon in 6xx series, as Masked had mentioned a few weeks back, there is no need to upgrade to a 680 over 590.

 

However 680 SLI can be prefered to 590 Quad SLI, as i hear that some games have issues utilizing 4 cores.

Yes, this is correct.

I can't really say more but, with 1x590, you still have an edge AND the price will be dropping a bit more, soon enough.

The only real issue is that of the warranty -- Asus, MSI and Gigabyte have been under extreme pressure to go with a transferable policy...EVGA just did (effective obviously with *AHEM*)...So the only real reason for YOU guys to switch is for warranty purposes.

Plus, I actually have a feeling they'll be unlocking the 590 a bit more in the next few weeks which is mostly why, I'm holding back on writing our own version -- If they do as they've said ~ There will be some real changes...If not, time to get crunching.

I got myself a Zotac 590 and i found out last month that i had to register online (within 15 days of purchase) to qualify for extended warranty. Now i am stuck with the regular warranty. I will never purchase Zotac products again. A company should stand by their products and not require for online registration within 15 days of purchase. Crap if you ask me.

 

I cant wait to OC my GPU tomorrow. First time OCing my 590. thumbsupsmiley.png

 

Right now at full load i get around 85, and with the fan installed i am hoping to lower this a lot. I hope i can get to 700 mhz on air with voltage tweaking and not go over 85 degrees.

I just did my first ever OC today for my 590

 

Core Clock is now 637 (5% more than stock core)

 

my 3Dmark11 score moved to 9560 from 9200

 

I did not notice any temperature changes.

 

I wonder if it is safe to say that this is a stable OC?

How can the price drop lower than EOL, and no longer produced? EVGA doesn't even list them any longer.

If you know where to buy more of these 590's then it's your obligation to tell your fellow Forumites here where they are.

Are you also saying Nvidia has plans to relax the voltage limits on these cards or are they going to re-release them with the proper components that can safely use higher volts?

We all know that these cards are capable already of so much more than Nvidia will allow, so if they are going to allow us to use what we've already paid for, then how are they going to go about it? Driver workarounds or new BIOS' straight from the factory?

As I've said before, Nvidia has screwed every single one of us over by making these cards underperform and also made liars of EVGA since they can't let us overvolt these GTX590 Classifieds as they said we could when they first sold us these cards.
