Nvidia GTX 590 and GTX 550 Ti show up

Written by Slobodan Simic
geforce

In beta driver .inf entries
After a quick check of Nvidia's 266.7x beta drivers, VR-Zone found two quite interesting entries inside the .inf file. The Nvidia Geforce GTX 590 and the Geforce GTX 550 Ti are currently listed in the driver but we are sure that more details will surface pretty soon.

We already wrote a lot about the GTX 590, Nvidia's next dual-GPU graphics card. It will be based on two GF110 GPUs and will feature 3GB of GDDR5 memory. The new GTX 550 Ti will apparently look a lot like the GTX 560 Ti and might even use the same PCB. According to the info, it is based on the GF116-400 GPU and features 1GB of GDDR5 memory.

Excellent, the more the merrier. Now if only AMD can get Antillies out in time...

I wouldn't worry about AMD's ability to execute, it's Nshittia who are always late to the party.

I wouln't worry about nvidia either, even if they will arrive late to the party, no one could justify a 500W monster, unless the specs will be low and they will use quad-slot-cooling.

Is that 2x 1.5GB framebuffer rumor verified?

I still cannot quite accept the fact that Nvidia would go for a full 2X 384bit bus for this product.

IMO keeping the bus at 2X 320bit and 1280MB frameburffer, would be more sensible from both a power draw and price perspective. On the other hand there's also this multi monitor trend flying around, but even then, there are those 580s available as well...!

The 570s GF110 with all shaders enabled, at 600something core clock is my approach of what things will be, in order to stay at ~300W.

I have inside information that it will be GF 114 used for the dual card.

Its a dual chip on one plate. Its not based on the GTX 580 and will have less shaders or cuda processors as nvidia calls them than the GTX580 per card of course.

always? gtx580 vs hd6970, google that. or 570 vs 6970 for that matter.... late one time, but always better...?!


edit: not trolling, just tired of everytime i get on here people are talking shi@ about something, and 98% of the time they're wrong.

Cant compare a 580 with a 6970 because of the price difference, and a 570 is slower in most games where it matters.

I'm guessing the GTX 550 will use a 128-bit memory interface and will be to the GTX 560 Ti what the GTX 450 was to the GTX 460.
 
 
+15 #9 123s 2011-02-17 15:39
Hope not, the 560 is much faster then the 460, so maybe the 550 is as fast as 460, something that is very hard to do with 128 bit.

Btw Crisis 2 demo is out in March 1, wonder if it's all related.
