GTX 590 Quad SLI tested

Review:
Top Performance, High Price




Since we’ve had two GTX 590 cards laying around, we decided to indulge in some SLI, or more precisely quad SLI, since we’re talking about dual GPU cards here.

Apart from enjoying some 2560x1600 gaming with details and settings cranked to the max, this is the first time we've had our test rig drawing up to 1100W. Note that we had to swap our 1000W test unit for a 1250W one.

So, let’s move on and see what two GTX 590s have to offer.

nVidia has some driver issues in Metro it seems..why would one GTX590 be able to use AA while two can't?

nVidia's better at lower resolutions with their top-tier cards than AMD is. Not sure if that's a good thing.. (http://www.hardwareheaven.com/reviews/1139/pg5/zotac-nvidia-geforce-gtx-590-quad-sli-review-bulletstorm.html)

Needs more games other than an AMD-sided game and an nVidia-sided game WITH tessellation.

They dont know how to make a quad sli review. Tests at 1920x1080? That is possible with 570 / 6970. It is retarded to use that settings with 2 590. I would say 2560x1600 should be the minimum resolution and that 3 monitor tests are necessary. When you use 3 monitors scalling of quad sli becomes much better. Also there was no comparsion with 3 580 or 3 6970 that would be faster.

2 x GTX 590
1200Watt
Cost over £1100
Lower performance than HD 6990
Might explode

2 x HD 6990
Under 900Watt
Costs under £925
Best performance
Doesn't explode

Nvidia need 28nm badly, AMD already in production of 28nm cards, rumoured release in July. The next round of cards will be amazing, the GTX 590 really isn't worth its price tag. Either HD 6990 or if want Nvidia wait until Nvidia hit 28nm..

in a direct head 2 head 6990 vs 590, ati scores on allmost every test..

real shame you couldnt buckle up 2x6990 in this comparison, it would basically all come down to driver tweaking to decide who holds the quad-scaling crown

either way.. i think testing with 3x2 monitor would be in place with those speeds... if you want true results and scaling up to like 7680×3200 resolutions

It'll probably be just mobile series which were rumoured to be released first, makes sense since we're constantly trying to increase the mobile marketshare, we won't see the desktop HD 7xxx until Q4 2011

1099 Watts is pretty extreme for almost any purpose.

All the eye candy does not make an FPS player shoot better...
