NVIDIA most powerful graphics cards the GeForce GTX 590 is launched. The GTX 590 is designed for the enthusiast and most hardcore gamer and will start at $699 USD.
It's based on NVIDIA's GF110 tech (codenamed "Fermi"). Except GTX 590 is quite a step up from GTX 580. And, combines two GF110 GPUs into a single graphics card.
It comes with a total of 1024 CUDA Cores and 3GB of GDDR5 memory. Think about it as each GPU on the card having 1.5GB of memory each and 512 CUDA cores per GPU. The clock speed for GTX 590 is 607MHz.
GTX 590 uses same cooling technology introduced with GTX 580 with dual vapor chambers and a new cooling fan.
For people running multiple displays -- the GTX 590 supports following scenarios:
- NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround: Three 1080p 120Hz displays for awesome surround 3D gaming.
- NVIDIA Surround (non-3D): Three 2560x1600 resolution displays for a combined resolution of 7680x1600. Can be landscape or portrait mode -- depending on personal preference.
And, with built in support for 3D Vision, GTX 590 can be used for 3D Blu-ray movie playback as well.
If for any reason GTX 590 is still not enough graphics power? You can add another GTX 590 and SLI them together! using "Quad-SLI." Essentially, with two GTX 590s in a single PC with SLI -- you're running 4 GPUs. To ensure the best possible experience for PCs going the Quad-SLI route -- NVIDIA has created an "ecosystem" of certified components they recommend that will give you the best experience which includes:
- Two GTX 590's (of course!)
- A certified Quad SLI motherboard.
- A certified Quad SLI power supply.
- A certified Quad SLI chassis.
