Point of View / TGT GTX 590 Ultra Charged previewed

Preview: TGT did it again - the fastest card on the planet


You had to be living under a rock not to hear of the TGT team’s magic on Point of View cards, and the guys are so up to it that we sometimes fear that their Beast cards will soon have no competition. As soon as we finished testing of our GTX 580 Beast 2, which is currently the fastest single GPU card around, we received the fastest dual-GPU card – the GTX 590 Ultra Charged. This is not all though as TGT is prepping a water cooler GTX 590 that will run even faster.

Nvidia’s reference GPU clocks are 608MHz, but TGT pushed it to 692MHz on the Ultra Charged version. Good news is that the card is already available and you can find it here.

Below you see GPUZ screenshots of GTX 590 at reference and Ultra Charged clocks.

You’ve heard that a few GTX 590 cards kicked the bucket due to extreme voltages, but you won’t worry about that with TGT’s cards. First of all, GTX 590 Ultra Charged is a factory overclocked graphics card that is covered by warranty and voltages are kept in check. Nvidia launched no less than three new GTX 590 drivers in less than a week, and they come with many improvements in stability and performance.

You can check out some preliminary results below, which confirm that GTX 590 Ultra Charged is the fastest card around at the moment.

very nice performance boost, let's wait for Toxic on AMD side now.

Hmm, seems to me if you compare the 4xAA scores the 6990 wins by 2.6 FPS and loses by 0.39 FPS.

So, how is it the fastest card on the planet? An OC version of the 590 is basically neck and neck with the stock 6990 when compared at the higher quality settings.

I'd also like to know how loud the card is with the fan running at 87%.

An overclocked card that only matches a stock HD 6990 whilst running the risk of exploding, yep Nvidia did it again :/ I bet this card will be about $200 more than the HD 6990... Meh..

"Our best card yet"

"Pop"

"Doh!"

Fastest card on the planet my backside.
All this shows is that at high AA the 590 just can't handle a stock 6990.
Factor in the way higher price, and the fact that this is about as fast as the 590 gets, and the best 6990 variations are not yet out, the optimum drivers aren't out, its quite clear which card is ultimately faster at the very high end.
And what on earth happened to the 5970 on Metro 2033? 0.85 fps seems odd.

Boomstick777 - you are amd equivalent of Warrior LOL - so much trolling,but no noise hehehe.Keep going,somebody needs make other people laugh.
LOL - you amd fangirls really way more worst than NV ones hehehe.I like idiots who worship plastic and metal pc parts LOL :D
Boomstick777=Warrior 24/7

Yasin - add watercooling to 6990,coz stock is nightmare to listen,best drivers not out for 590 also,no other 590 variations (and 6990 already longer in the market than 590)NV drivers way better,everybod y knows that,and to sum up all,both cards are just awful,only console ports around,good luck spending $$$ for 6990 vacuum cleaner

"NV drivers way better"

Proofs ?

@Sanjin - I'm guessing the res of 2033 is also 2560x1600?

@Yasin, once you run out of VRAM on any card at higher AA and resolutions in 2033, your FPS goes to 0. Every other card on that chart has more than 1GB of memory that the 5970 has.

This comparison is useless without going to 5760x1080. I can pretty much guess what would happen to any card with less than 2GB of VRAM.

I don’t believe there are so many idiots among AMD users.
Perhaps there are few moronic teens who find interesting to be fan of internal computer electronics or its manufacturer. But apparently there is just one paid PR employee sitting in the office to produce all this “fanboy” crap and setting thumbs under various nick names when anything regarding Green Goblin or Red Hat appears on the popular forums.
