Asus rolls out its own GTX 590

Written by Slobodan Simic
asus

First one at Newegg.com for US $699.99
As you probably already know, yesterday was a big day for Nvidia and most, if not all, partners have announced their own GTX 590 cards based mostly on Nvidia's reference design. Although the suggested price tag was set at US $699/€649, some retailers/e-tailers are asking for more in order to score some extra cash thanks to the hype. Asus was no exception as it has launched its own card yesterday, but the good news is that this is the first one that is actually listed at Newegg.com with the Nvidia suggested price tag of US $699.99.

As far as the specs go, Asus' card carries a slight factory overclock and while reference cards are mostly clocked at 607/1214/3420 for GPU, shaders and those 3GB of GDDR5 memory, Asus' card works at at 612/1244/3420MHz. In case you somehow manage to miss the GTX 590, we are talking about Nvidia's flagship dual-GPU card that features two fully enabled GF110 GPUs with 2x512 CUDA cores, or simply two GTX 580 GPUs paired up on a single PCB.

Newegg.com was always our reference for US prices and it is no wonder that we see a GTX 590 card priced correctly. Asus is simply the first partner that managed to get one to Newegg.com but we are sure that more will follow pretty soon.

You can find it here.

The cooler looks a lot better than other NV based cards. Too bad you can't OC this card too much without causing a power outage.

Cooler is nice makes for a near silent card. Not like the fail cooler on the 6990. I wouldnt use that fan on my chipset! gtx 590 plus water block=amd pwnage!!!!!

If your card is silent it may have melted like the many other GTX 590's.

HD 6990 does get loud becausce it doesn't restrict its power like Nvidia does with GTX 590. The HD 6990 is still the fastest card and it doesn't melt! A feature that is important to me when choosing a video card

:D You NV Fanboys kill me, the only thing Pwning about this card is how Fast it Blows up. Not to mention that if the 6990 had the same Heatsink that this card has then it would beat it even more to its knees.
BTY where is yur Friend Warrior ?

Nonsense !! this is totaly BS. :-* The GTX 590 OC's like a BEAST so go ahead and may the Force of JHH be with you.
