Point of View TGT GTX 590 ships with 691MHz clock

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Water cooled 700MHz+ this week

Many will argue that GTX 590 costs quite a lot and on average you need to pay €649 for a vanilla non-overclocked card.

If you want something faster and more exciting such as TGT Point of View GeForce GTX590 Charged clocked at 668MHz and it will cost you €650 as long as you live or want to buy it online from Germany. The link is here.

If you want an even faster card, you can buy TGT Point of View GeForce GTX 590 TGT Ultra Charged Edition that will sell for just under €700 but works at 691MHz. This card should make some 10 to 15 percent faster score than vanilla card.

Last but certainly not least is the water cooled card TGT Point of View GeForce GTX590 BEAST Watercooled listed for saucy €849 but it is certain that the card works over 700MHz with a tendency to go much higher. The final clock is yet to be determined and the card should start shipping later this week.

You can preorder it here.

691 mhz when doing nothing, but otherwise throttled all the time to keep the VRMs alive?

hmmm.. wonder if these units are gonna be popping (literally) up all over the place?

I wander if the performance will match the HD 6990? Also more importantly do these new versions still melt if you try to overclock them? Hmmm

I love the Tech power GTX 590 review

"Card blew up during testing, power limiting system does not work reliably"

haha

If the 607 mhz one blows up, this one ... ?
'Point of View TGT GTX 590' aka 'Cernobyl 2011'

They blew the one card up because they overvolted and overclocked it with the fan on auto. Thats just plain stupid. Do that to a 6990 with that little chipset fan on it and see what happens.

If you do that to 6990 guess what happens: It runs okay. Just flip the switch. The card is overvolted and overclocked and it doesnt fail. Do you know that 6990 mosfets can provide 700A whereas 590 mosfets can hardly give 400A? It has a poor pcb desogn. No driver will fix this.Nvidia was caught off guard because they had designed 590 to have a 300W tdp and they OCed it at the last minute. They had to or else it would be 10% slower than 6990.

It was nothing to do with the fans, it was the dodgy drivers which didn't limit the current going to the card.
Doesn't make a difference anyway, the 6990 is a far better buy, and a significant amount cheaper as well as faster.

typical fanboi speculating without any research or measure.

Just to keep you informed (reluctantly), People HAVE overclocked the the 6990, the fan has a higher noise output becuase guess what.. *drum roll* AMD arent retards in thinking 40% of a fan spin will cool 2 gpus with over 300w of power getting fed too them.

Nerd and Yasin covered the rest of the explanation quite well.

:D Your starting to sound as intelligent as Warrior. Dam dude DO YOUR HOMEWORK.
I pity the poor saps that buy this card.
The 6990 is hands down the better buy , AND you won't BLOW (or damage) the card if you OC it.

true, seriously mate, fudzilla is amd country. AMD has had its fair share of blowing graphics cards.
