[ Kitguru ] Updated GTX590 BIOS rushed out to repair reputation - Page 12

post #111 of 115
Operation: People of OCN ganging up on potentially hot chick; COMMENCE

Seriously though, I have been thinking about switching to the 500 series cards pretty soon. Tired of ATi already, and want to get back some Nvidia in my system. But not so sure with all of this 590 crap thats happening. Kinda scares me to be honest.

And yeah, I would totally wait for Kepler.

You caught one guy lying, which is a good thing, but Nvidia is a business, right -- they are not going to spend money on designing a new BIOS if people were just "making things up".

My gut tells me this issue is 10% AMD fanboy BS and 90% a real problem.
This. BIOS updates are always a risky business because a small number of people will brick their videocards (power fluctionation at the wrong time, ect). Nvidia would not issuing a BIOS fix unless there was a real issue to address.

I wouldnt let this issue sour you on the whole company. The GTX590 was an ambitious card- trying to compete with both the price and performance of the 6990. I would bet their manufacturing costs are much higher than AMD's, they have to save money were they can. But in this instance trying to save a little money on the VRM's was a mistake. I still think a GTX560TI or GTX570 dual card would have been a more realistic move.

Some burnt up, I'm fairly sure.

It's why I just kept on my 9600GT until the HD4890 came out.



1) It had a VRM failure due to overheating, what would the one in the video short out on, exactly?
2) And? The driver won't fix anything, just delay it at best.

The only way nVidia will repair the reputation they lost here in my eyes if they replace every single GTX 590 sold with a GTX 595 that has a far more beefy VRM section with GTX 580 clocks.



I have to wonder how they fixed a hardware issue with software...I bet it's postponed, at most.
Saulin will never understand.

Firstly, why couldn't nVidia use the same three-fan design? It sickens me.

Now you ask - how that's going to be competitive with GTX 590?

I'll tell you! By crippling it!
>Three Fan

Triple slot. It'd become too thick given the 590's blocks.

>better than the GTX 580
