[TR] Nvidia, Asus put the clamps on GTX 590 voltage - Page 15

I am hoping it's not a case of ATI fanboys being so down on the 6990 that they have to continuously bash the 590 when it turns out it actually gets beat by the 6990. Either that, or, again, expectations were too high for the 590.

The argument is getting old with all the non-card-owners acting like they know all the reasons why someone would actually buy a 590 over a 6990.
Leaving all personal preferences and biases at the curb.....I have GTX 580 SLI in my rig and after playing with the 590 and 6990, I can clearly state that the 6990 is the better product. Given the pricing, performance, sound profiles, and power envelopes, I would buy the 6990 over the 590.

Never thought of it like that, I like it.

Absolutely. NVIDIA is not a "me too" company, or at least most of us do not perceive the company that way. Given the SLI scaling, that has been great over the years, I think we expected a bit more this time round. The two things that bit NVIDIA in the ass on this were not being able to put two true 580 cores on a single PCB due to electrical and thermal limitations, and the face that latest gen CrossFireX scaled so much better than previous iterations.

(although the 9800gx2 was plagued by immature drivers, the gtx 590 is a design disaster)
I would not say that. I would say NVIDIA named the card inappropriately. Should have been the GTX 575, or 570GX2, not that the company would ever do that. And let's not forget about the 5800 series.

Lol. I didn't see that one the first time. So. You have an i7 980x, and you are trying to convince us that your are NOT an enthusiast?

You bought a 1000$ enthusiast CPU, and then you tell us you bought a 700$ graphic card for ''convenience'' only ???????

You are trying really hard to convince yourself and justify your purchase. But it's not working. Stop hurting yourself, really. And stop defending the 590. It's not a logical choice with the system you have. And all the universe is laughing right now at the 590. I know it hurts. But it's like that. We can't change that.

Sometimes, I really don't understand people on the internet. Buying the most powerful and overpriced CPU on the planet, to pair it with a ''convenient'' graphic card that you can't OC. Strange, really strange.

But it's your money, and your life. So you can do what you want with it. On that point, I totally agree with you.

I'm an alienware admin, the core was free; so were the cards.

I have 2x 6990's with EK blocks on my desk btw...I prefer what I'm using.

I'm very happy with the results and never once have I defended the card simply your lack of respect for anything and/or anyone.

You trance around like a child, pointing fingers and tossing blame towards people that don't care...When they bite, you ramp up like it's some sort of show...Grow up.

So you think buyers of either the 6990 or the GTX 590 are looking at the overclock potential more than anything else?

Because I don't think people looking to overclock actually buy the most expensive cards when they can get a pair of cards for cheaper that overclock better

Also who says the GTX 590 can't overclock? Didn't HardOCP benched the GTX 590 at 725Mhz? Hell I have seen it benched up to 775Mhz

I feel like anything under 900 core for a 500 series card doesn't count. They're so capable that anything less is just a shame.

Since you want an answer so bad:

I have a surround setup, 2-1920x1080 moitors and 1-1920x1200 monitor. My 1920x1200 is a p-mva panel and, eventhough it's old, is a great monitor. I do not want to get rid of it, especially if it means I get stuck with a 1080p panel. Both my side panels were purchased because they were cheap.

None of these panels have display port, just DVI. In fact they don't even have HDMI. So ATI is out because I am not buying a new monitor when I like what I have now just so I can get an ATI card. Which means I am limited to Nvidia, and limited to an SLI setup... or the GTX 590. I have to have DX11 because I bought this card planning for Battlefield 3, otherwise I would have kept my GTX 295 which worked just fine.

I also watercool. So I have to include costs of waterblocks into the prices. Dual GTX580s would have cost WAY too much with waterblocks. GTX560s would have been a little weak and they still don't even have waterblocks for them. So my choice is pretty much the GTX590 or dual 570s. Assuming I could snag some deals on the 570s, they'd be right in line with the price of the 590. They perform pretty similar, and I find it to be a LOT easier to just buy a hydro copper 590 and throw it in my computer, than to buy 2 570s, buy waterblocks, install the waterblocks, and then deal with the issue of adding the original cooler again if I need to RMA (assuming adding the block doesn't void the warranty, which it does with some cards). I have a job and don't care to waste time messing around with that, I'd rather the extra time go to actually using my computer.

So the obvious choice was the GTX590 as it met every one of my needs, be it stock or overclocked. I have an EVGA card so if it does blow, I'll RMA it quite easily (and I only have 1 card to worry about and I don't need to remove the cooler).

That is why I bought the card I did- it met my needs. That's why anyone should buy anything. Believe it or not, I bought the card after putting a lot of thought into what worked the best for my system. And so far I have 0 complaints and am extremely happy with my purchase
