I had 2 of them, dual pcb, are you perhaps referring to the single pcb 295?
I can remember one game and one synthetic that didn't do well, Bioshock and 06.
Other than that I had no issues with my 295s.
Even here in our 295 members thread, there was more praise than anything regarding the 295.
Perhaps not here but, EVGA's forums, back when Asus had forums...They were littered with people whom had their 295's blown out within the first 2 weeks.
Ours blew out and then the replacements blew out...Thus, this office never actually went with the 295's; we stuck with 280's and later the 285's.
There's definitely info out there on it...It was a big deal for about 2 weeks then forgotten about...This 590 issue, isn't going to be a quick fix, unfortunately.

And yes I realize my cpu isn't amazing awesome..... I do not think it is holding back the graphics card though. I will work on overclocking it today... see if I can break the 4 ghz barrier with some volt increases.....
The issue is...You're not listening.
Even if you bench this card, you won't get real results...Drivers haven't matured enough to get a fair assessment so, why would I waste my time?
Since I'm still at work, here's my GPU-Z of the office PC. I step it up daily to see what I can do under stock voltages until the new drivers come out but, quite frankly, without the new drivers...I haven't even installed vantage at home yet and it won't do anyone, any good because SLI isn't scaling properly.
When working drivers come out, that actually scale, that don't choke the card...that function WELL...I'll be among the first people to give the vast majority the finger...Until then, it's sheathed.
Work PC btw:
It's 24/7 ~ I haven't started tweaking the MC yet b/c I hear that's where people have the most issues but, I have none.Edited by Masked - 4/1/11 at 3:09pm
