Geforce GTX 595 has two GF110s

Written by Fuad Abazovic


CES 2011: And two 2x4 PCIe connectors
One thing is sure, Nvidia's dual-chip Geforce GTX 595 packs two GF110 cores. This is the chip behind Geforce GTX 580 and it is not exactly the coolest chip around. We can also deny any plans for a GF104-based dual-card from Nvidia.

The card has a dual-slot cooler with three fans on it, at least the one from EVGA does and we can expect that the card will end up quite fast.

Judging by the two 2x4 PCIe connectors the total power available to the card is 225W and we can only hope that consumption won't be too bad. It will most certainly be hot, but end users like silent fans and they kind of make peace with the fact that they are getting one very hot but extremely fast card.

AMD's dual-GPU Antilles card is scheduled to appear in late Q1 and it will also end up pretty hot and fast.

Well, I don't know anything about the GTX 595 or its specifications, but I am deffinitely not convinced that this card EVGA has shown at CES is a GTX 595 with two GF110 GPUs. It looks more like a custom design card from EVGA with GF104/114 judging by the four memory chips around each GPU at the back and the component layout. And by the way, a single 8 pin power connector can carry up to 150 watts to the card.

"2x4 PCIe" ?
Did you count only the +12V wires?... that's a lame written post-titile!
You actually mean 2 8-pin PCIe connectors and either way, 8 pin or 6 pin, there are ony 3 +12V wires.
And the 6 pin one can deliver 150W... more if the PSU is designed so.

Edit: no jurassic & deadspeedv... that is the old PCIe v1.0 spec, which is done through 2 +12V wires and 3 ground wires http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/overclocking/psu/116

A good enough point. EVGA would not confirm the cards identity to anyone, so it's anyones guess at this point. Since Fuad doesn't name or hint at a source, I am assuming he is guessing based on his opinion of the pics.

Well now Fuad's head can swell a little! (jk) The ZDNet article you linked to is using THIS article as a source in the update at the bottom. Now let's hope that Fuad and the other guessers are actually right.

Guys, take a look at this link; official EVGA stuff:

PCIe slot - up to 75w
6-pin ------- up to 75w
8-pin ------- up to 150w

This is pure fud...

dual 580's tdp can reach 500 to 600w in sli theoretically speaking, even if they castrate the cuda cores the tdp can still be way beyond 300w... dual gtx560 can be a reality...

Jurassic1024 has it corrent

PCI slot is 75W
6 pin is 75W
8 Pin is 75W.

So if this card has 2x8pin then it will be 150+150+75=375W

Doesn't take an electrical engineer to figure that out.

But where do I place my frying pan? Or for that matter same comment for a 6990! :lol:
