Nvidia GTX 590 slated for mid March

Written by Fudzilla staff


Antilles lurking in the shadows
DonanimHaber is reporting that Nvidia will introduce its dual-GPU card at the PAX East 2011 event, which kicks off March 11.

The new card, designated GTX 590, packs two GF110 cores on a single PCB, but we still don’t know the details. It should pack 3072MB of GDDR5 on a double 384-bit bus, but there is no word on the clocks yet. The biggest concern, of course, is power consumption. There’s a good chance the GTX 590 will be the hottest and hungriest card of all time.

AMD is also working on its HD 6990 Antilles board and it should launch at about the same time. It appears neither Nvidia nor AMD will showcase the new boards to the general public at CeBit, but they should show up a couple of weeks later nonetheless.

:lol:

HOW ABOUT THAT?

IM GOIN FOR A RECORD, I THINK WARRIOR WAS NEGATIVE 150!

Sounds like both companies are kinda emberassed by their best cards, not because of the performance, rather because of the record setting TDPs.

I wonder what they will do when fabrication node shrinks won't be there to help lower power consumption.

AM-DOO DOO bugs bite at anything. Its funny how they say "but we still don’t know the details" and "no word on clocks yet", so saying its going to be hottest and hungriest card of all time is stuuuuppPPIIIID !!!! But know ye this, it will be the fastest card of all time! :lol:

I've been waiting to pull the trigger on two of these for months now. Finally, a general ballpark release date. Thank you, DigiTimes and DonanimHaber!

The 580 is faster than the 6970 so it obvious that the 590 is going to run circles around Antilles since both dual GPU cards are based around their single GPU counterpart, anyways it going to be fun to watch these behemoths battle it out.

the question is really how much down-clocking and disabling will be necessary for them to fit in the power envelope.

because there is such a thing as the power ceiling: the maximum amount of power allowed by the PCI-E specs.
performance per watt has been ATI's domain for the last 2 or 3 generations.
so if they both are right on the line of what pci-e will allow ATI could in fact end up faster.

of course it could also be that nvidia doesn't care about the pci-e standard and just blows past it.

so you think nvidia is going to disable a lot of their GPU and cut the clocks by huge amounts then?
because if not it is going to be the hottest thing ever, no doubt about it.
And if it will be the fastest as you seem to know for sure, then there is in fact no way that it can not be the hottest card ever. performance per watt is NOT nvidia's architectures strong point.

so really, no matter how i look at it, you are wrong on at least one of those claims.

How do you know? What do you know...nothing! The same thing was said about the 580 by uninformed spunk monkeys who were wrong. Nividia's chip is better than AM-DUNG's. The 500 series kicks the 6900 series down the stairs and out of the door. AM-DOO DOO's only chance is too pack the cards with 900 GBs of memory and clock the damn thing to the limit just to try and keep up! Antitties will be no different.

When it comes to performance nobody's concerned about power requirements, it's just AMD's excuse for having inferior GPU's "we don't have the fastest GPU's but we'll save you $2 on your monthly bill". The 580 even has power draw limiting firmware and it still kicks 6970 ass.
