Asus' GTX 590 gets unboxed and pixellized

Written by Slobodan Simic

Big day for Nvidia tomorrow
We are only a day away from the official launch of Nvidia's next dual-GPU flagship GTX 590 card and we already have the first pictures of the card. Guys from Pcinlife had a chance to take some photos of Asus' box and the card inside.

We already wrote about some specs and despite the lack of info at Pcinlife, we do know that Asus' card will have slightly" higher clocks. Namely,  612MHz for the GPU, 1224MHz for those 2x512 CUDA cores and 3420MHz for those 3GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a dual 384-bit memory interface. The reference clocked card should be set at 607/1214/3414MHz.

Apart from the pictures, there aren't any specific details except for the fact that this might end up to be the longest card that Nvidia ever made, surpassing even the good old GTX 295. A large fan between two GPUs is something that has been known for quite some time, and the only novelty is the back of the card that will apparently have two small back-plates, one per GPU. The card features three DVI ports and a single mini HDMI output.

These pictures are simply a calm before the storm as tomorrow is Nvidia's GTX 590 launch day.

nVidia reigns
Now they have the fastest dual GPU card on the planet, and the fastest single card :-) :-)

No reliable benchmarks have been released yet so what makes you think its faster than the HD 6990?

There is a couple of Nvidia leaked bencharks where it loses to the HD 6990 in 3D mark 11 and Crysis but beats it in street fighter (lol) and at low resolution.

Unless the GTX 590 costs less than the HD 6990 it surely is a failure, costs more than the HD 6990 performs the same more or less (by current benchmarks) but needs more power. FAIL

The OP didn't mention any specs, but did say about the NDA, so that 912 MHz is BS for now!

Funny the price equivalent of $993 in China is not mentioned. I'm not laughing.

Yeah exaclty, the prices on the net so far are rediculous, if it was cheaper than the HD 6990 and offered slightly less performance but ran cooler/quieter it would still be a good option. As it is though it looks like a weaker card priced higher? If anybody buys this card its purely out of brand loyalty and nothing else. Guess we need to wait and see offical prices.

Here at Fudzilla, we use spell checker exclusively for editing our articles. Any further editing and fact checking is deemed the responsibility of our readers to note and correct in their minds while reading the articles. We realize that at times this may result in the development of wild rumors and accusations. However, we feel that the integrity of our readers (eg. Warrior 24_7, Drac, etc.) is enough to justify this lack of professional oversight. :P :lol: :P

edit: Yes, I fully expect plenty of kick downs for this comment.

What is wrong with being a brand loyalist? I'm not one to be a fair weather friend. I'm not going to be like Warrior 24_7 and dog ATI, competition is good for all of us consumers. For the record though there has been no reputable benchmarks out yet that show either the 6990 or the gtx 590 as the winner in performance... we will have to wait and see. Personally i hope the gtx 590 wins this one, NV needs a win after loosing their crown for 2 years. OK start the hate comments for the NV fan. :)

It's not brand loyalty that's a bad thing, it is BLIND loyalty. Having faith that your preferred brand will fix a particular problem is admirable. Refusing to acknowledge that the problem exists is ignorance.

Also, I'm not going to rag on a fellow nVidia fan.

/GASP, wait, what? He's an nVidia fan?!?!
Shocking I know. I just don't like fans who make ridiculous blanket statements such as "Everything made by AMDoo Doo face poopy head butt munchers is JUNK!" Because it showcases how pathetically unintelligent that person is and actually hurts the overall opinion of a company simply by them speaking. I equate these people to those that actually believe anything that Keith Oberman, Glen Beck, Chris Matthews, etc. say. They're morons. My suggestion to them is to do the world a favor by cutting out their tongue and sewing their mouth shut.

@ Scootiep
Well i can agree that NV has a problem with delivering good performance and also having descent thermals... atleast with top end cards. they do much better with their main stream cards like 560 and 550. Ati though is no stranger to outlandish thermals and loud fans. They both need to rethink architecture and stop doing the Intel Ghz war.

@ Scootiep
Warrior 24_7 and Dan seem to be 4 year olds, by the comments they make. no intelligence in their comments.
