NVIDIA GTX 590 Owners Club - Page 432

post #4311 of 5154
Thanks man. For the RMA I was thinking of a year or so down the road when they aren't making 590's anymore there's a chance I can get a cool replacement.

My brother had a 295 that was crapped and EVGA gave him a 480 as a replacement - so if this happens in a few years I wouldn't mind getting something like that.

A 690 easily performs 50% - sometimes 70% better than a 590.

And the 590 can be OC'd to Mars II clocks anyway.

I just put together another system for a friend using two 680's and I am impressed with the performance of those cards, they perform just as good if not better then my 590's.

Are you sure that Mars II performs only 20% better than a 590? I thought it was at least 50% but i am not sure. I never ever touched a Mars II :)

It seems that although 590 = 680 (give or take)

680 SLI is better than 590 Quad SLI.

 

Masked has also said that in his tests few pages before.

 

So i am not suprised.

You mean this, eh?

So as some of you have been asking...
670 =/= 680
670 OC'd == 680 (Lesser shaders etc but, score wise @ the same)
670 OC'd =/= 680 OC'd (This is especially true on water...680 has a higher roof due to hardware)
590 = 680 ~ This is true and I've said it previously, you're within 5% so, a stock 590 is the equivalent to a stock 680.
Now, I've laid out the performance above, you can obviously deduce that an OC'd aftermarket 670 = 590 ~ That is true.
The major issue that you'll have in upgrading, if you choose to, is availability...I, as a vendor, cannot even get more 690's then my initial order...There just aren't any right now...Same goes for 670s and 680's.
So in terms of performance, believe it or not, the 590's are still in the game...I wouldn't really worry about upgrading until 110, to be honest because all of the games coming out within the next year (2 were just pushed back to 2013) are easily handled by what you have...
I'm going to be unavailable on the forums over the weekend + for a while there-after because I was just asked (as a favor) to fix a mistake that someone made server-side with a major, major game so, I fly out in a few hours. If there are any questions about what I said above or, any other questions you'd like answered -- PM me directly or, my work email is in the signature.

I, personally, don't think the Mars 2 should be included in comparisons for 2 reasons...

1) They were extremely limited...Limited enough that my former office only got 1...That says an incredible amount to me alone...
aaaannnddddddd...
2) 1/3rd were RMA'd and of the rest that actually still exist...Only about 1/4 work as advertised.

So, the Mars 2, maybe working as intended, you have about 200...200 is not mainstream enough for an end user to connect with or even worry about...

That being said, it was 20-30% stock over a 590, 40% OC'd but, the driver errors were incredible...I mean you're talking about Vsync tessellation, sometimes the GPU's wouldn't scale...Notice you haven't heard how awesome they are since launch...And they keep very quiet about the card? *Whispers* There's a reason for that.

I actually have 2 clients that refused to listen to me, their cards came DOA and Asus basically called them liars...I'm not getting into that drama but, the Mars 2 was not by any means, a successful product...A successful launch for Asus? Yes...But, not for the customer.

So ultimately, I wouldn't factor the Mars 2 into any graph/conclusion or even comparison because it was not a quality product for the most part and isn't something mainstream enough to even have a successful comparison.

Hmm good inside information Masked.. Thank you. I had always thought that Asus Mars II was an incredible product.

 

It was way overpried for a 580 SLI but thats the marketint portion of it. Shame that it turned out this way though. I would be mad angry if i had purchased an Asus MArs II and send it to RMA.

 

Any how. I am still waiting for mhy 670 SLI setup system. By the way your signature needs updating bro :)

I'm excited for my 590 to come. Hopefully this will keep me content for another generation or two.

DO you intend to game on a single monitor @ 60 fps? or some other thing?

 

If you are only going to be gaming in a single monitor with 60 fps I am sure the 590 will be enough for you for the next 2 years with high quality settings I am sure. Unless a poorly optimized game comes out.

Yep - Going to stick with my u2711 and stop throwing money into this pit smile.gif
