    Default ASUS GeForce GTX 590

    Today's launch of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 signals the coming of a new juggernaut. Essentially bringing SLI performance to a single card, this new ASUS GTX 590 looks awfully impressive on paper, with some big claims of top performance that manages to maintain low temperatures and noise levels.

    Great review, I'm super jealous of this card right now, lol.

    There is a small typo on the overclocking page near the bottom, it says the card topped out at 7750mhz core.

    How does 560s in SLI @ 900mhz compare to something like this?

    This card is $700. 560's in SLI won't be anywhere near that price. Needless to say this card will spank 560's.

    Don't worry, if 560's work for you then they work for you. Don't try to chase the current gen stuff endlessly, you'll go broke.

    The reviews for this card varies with each site... some say it beats it while others say 6990 is still king.

    I just don't see it, the GTX 590 came out on top with only a couple exceptions in my testing. Add the fact that the temperature and power draw is lower, and considerably quieter, and CUDA/PhysX, the 590 is the clear winner of the two. No question at all.

    That being said, having 2 GPUs on one card is sometimes a dicey proposition because driver support and gaming completely makes or breaks the success of the card.

    Again, the vast majority of people won't need this horsepower; a GTX 570 or Radeon 6970 is plenty. But for those that need the best, it really doesn't get better than the GTX 590 for a single card setup.
