Non-reference GTX 590 should follow up shortly

Written by Slobodan Simic
nvidia

Factory overclocked, non-reference cooled
It is not that common for non-reference cards to follow the launch so closely but we heard that at least some non-reference GTX 590s will be announced, if not even launched in the first weeks after the official launch.

We still can't confirm any details on how high will the actual factory overclock be and what kind of cooling would these non-reference cards go for, but it is nice to know that they're on the way. Some partners might even go for the full custom design with its own PCB. The GTX 590 is the new Nvidia's flagship and we are quite sure that some partners will try to squeeze a few MHz from the card, despite its high TDP.

The information is pretty scarce at the moment but we are sure that we'll know more after the official launch tomorrow. Of course, if Nvidia indeed gave the green light on custom designs, partners will definitely do their best to stand out of the crowd.

I'm curious as to why Nvidia need to have partners always release overclocked versions of their cards?

With a stock 6990 pulling only 110 more watts than a 580, A 590 will be insanely power hungry.
I can't even imagine what an overclocked 590 will require!

actually i think one of the venders is bringing out an insanely overclocked version called the Gaddafi card.....
It's very power hungry. :lol:

Yeah the HD 6990 is actually really power efficient, it works out around 100 watts under load more than GTX 580 and £100 more from your wallet, but gives you up to 70% better performance. Awesome value card imo. Curious to see GTX 590 official prices, I don't see how Nvidia can price it sky high unless it offers at least a good 15% 20% performance over the HD 6990?

Fanboys will buy the card regardless, but then brand loyalty isn't a bad thing..

Read here to see for yourselves,

Quote "the GeForce GTX 580 still draws a lot of power. The fact is, for 100 more watts of power you get a massive 70% performance increase in your games using the Radeon HD 6990 compared to the GeForce GTX 580!"

Reference card is still not out but stories about non reference are out :)

I really hope that when GTX 590 will totally annihilate HD 6990 in every posible way, it will also put an end to those compasions of single and dual GPU's.

Unfortunately for you and all of the other Huang ass feeders, that is not to be. The 590 does not beat the 6990 in any meaningful test. It might have a couple of % on it at VERY LOW resolutions.. but WTF, who buys a card like that for 1024x768? Where it really counts, higher res with AA, the 590 is simply owned by the 6990. For less $. For less power. And the 6990 doesn't leave you stinking of SHIT.

As things stand, that is really unlikely. Thanks to scaling and power efficiency(a relative term IMO when talking about these dual GPU monsters), the 6990 can have higher clocks than the 580, thusly in the leaked canned benches at extremely retarded resolutions (seriously, who benches a 6990 or 590 on a single screen at 1920x1200) the 590 does not say very much. Across multiple screes at high res, expect the 590 to lose by a margin. But it will still be damn fast, count on that ;-)

Dan, please stop. please :o
