We saw Geforce GTX 590 in action

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Cebit 2011:
Dual-chip Nvidia is real
We had a chance to see Geforce GTX 590 at Cebit. It is real, it runs and it’s coming soon. It is quiet and packs enough power to run Crysis 2 in 3D at very nice frame rates.

The card has two PCIe 2x8 power connectors and it is rather hot, something that doesn’t come as a surprise. The card looks slightly different than the EVGA card we saw at CES 2011, but the EVGA card had a custom cooler that will be different than the reference one.

The launch has not been set, sources confirm, but there is a chance for a March, Q1 2011 launch. It looks like Nvidia wants to see Radeon HD 6990 performance and then decide on the final clocks and specs.

Once this card launches, it will be time for us to start sniffing about possible Q4 2011 28nm part launch dates.

Well, 6990 is made out of a plastic shroud with a blower in the center, not practical. If GTX590 takes the 480's cooler design, you probably won't need to think twice where you can cook your dinner. /sarcasm

2x4pins? That's interesting.

hd6990 is confirmed at 830mhz, meaning only ~ 5% off the hd6970 clocks

gtx590 will need to have an at least 10% slower core clock than its single GPU variant, or it blow your fuses or set your PC on fire

and hd6970 CF is already faster than gtx580 SLI in the higher res due to the ram advantage (2gb vs 1,5gb)

this will be an easy victory for the hd6990

yeah i think he means 2x8pin as even the 6990 (amd tends to have less of a power draw) uses more. It may have been an ES that you saw @ cebit.

Easy? mabye, it all depends on the clocks, which means you will be right only if your assumption is correct.

"sources close to Nvidia tell us that only ASUS and EVGA will be offering the GeForce GTX 590" -Tom, It's a PR card.

Most people who buy these cards wont care about stock clocks. They will all want to overclock them anyway. The real battle is which one can be overclocked the most?
