EVGA shows off first GTX 595

Written by


Still waiting for Antilles
Few AIBs had any truly interesting products for CES 2011, but EVGA managed to turn heads with the first Nvidia 500 series dual-GPU board.

The card, apparently designated GTX 595, packs two GF110 cores and it will be quite interesting to see how Nvidia and EVGA managed to cope with the thermals. EVGA used a massive heatpipe cooler with no fewer than three fans, but we still don't know the clocks. We can only assume that the clocks are somewhat lower  than on the GTX 580. There is no word on price, availability, or the amount of memory for that matter.

However, it's worth noting that AMD's dual-GPU Antilles board is also just around the corner. While the Cayman is marginally slower than the GF110 in a single-GPU environment, it's worth noting that AMD might have a bit more room to tinker with the clocks thanks to slightly lower TDPs, so Antilles could come a bit closer to the GTX 595.

We will probably have to wait until mid-Q1 to see GTX 595 and Antilles cards in action, but we're really  not sure they are worth the wait. Both cards will draw a lot of power and generate obscene amounts of heat and we doubt many current games will benefit from the extra performance.

So they used GF110 , interesting. AMD might become 2nd best again....depends on how much nvidia has to lower the clocks.

They will be both outside my price range anyways so it will be strictly a pissing contest between the Reds and the Greens, as far as i'm concerned.

Hexus.net actually have a similar article about this card EVGA is showing off: http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=28325

They look pretty sure this is a dual GF104 chip with 2GB Ram and that it will even cost less than GTX 580...Who knows? :-*
Can't wait to see it, whatever it is, against Antilles! :D
And yet I wonder how much engineering would be behind a dual GF110 board! :eek:

The only people that will buy such card are ones with WC setups and 1+kw psu's.

Although AMD gives a TDP of "under 300" for the 6970, I never managed to stress it over 220 Watt. Not even with a GPU load of 98% !

So I'd say YES, AMD has a lot MORE room for the Antilles than Nvidia has for their dual GPU cards.

@"Fudzilla: "The card, apparently designated GTX 595, packs two GF110 cores ..."

EVGA mentioned GF11x - they did't specifically say GF110.

AFAIK it's GF114.

Fudzilla said last year that there should be dual GTX480. No such thing ever existed. Where is nvidias roadmap? They haven't announced any dual cards. GTX500 still is a power hog not well manageable to single board. Is this a halo product or wishful thinking again?

Where I live you need more than a powerful PSU you need a powerful UPS also.

The battle of the monster dual GPU's. I can't wait for their release. Will AMD still hold the fastest graphics card in the world after Radeon 5970 or Nvidia will take again the crown since GTX 295.

It seems that Fudzilla just made up the whole "GTX595". This EVGA card is just two GTX460 (GF104) slapped together with TDP over 300W so it can't be even be sold as PCIe compatible. It only has 1Gb memory per chip and costs less than GTX580. You can read that from Hexus.net. Antilles will wipe floor with this thing.
