Review: High end battle indecisive


Nvidia launched its new dual GPU, Fermi-based GTX 590 card on March 24 and our today’s guest is Gainward Geforce GTX 590 3072MB GDDR5. The new GTX 590 combines two GF110 on one PCB. As you can see, Gainward used Nvidia’s reference cooler.

Nvidia confirmed that several partners are working on GTX 590 water blocks but all the available cards we’ve seen so far come with the reference solution. Gainward didn’t say anything about overclocked GTX 590 version, but we’re quite confident that they will do something about it soon enough.

GF110 is currently Nvidia’s fastest GPU – the same one used on the single GPU GTX 580. GPU specs remain unchanged for the dual-GPU card, but clocks have been lowered in order to improve thermals.

While GTX 580’s GPU runs at 772MHz, GTX 590’s runs at only 608MHz. The specs below apply to our today’s sample as well.

GTX 590 is a beast with 6 billion transistor and more than 2200 components on the card. Each core packs 512 CUDA processors, meaning that the card has a total of 1024. GTX 590 has eight GPCs (Graphics Processing Clusters), 32 streaming multiprocessors, 128 texture units and 96 ROPs. The memory interface is 384-bit and the 3072MB of memory is shared by two GPUs meaning the games can use only 1536MB of memory.
