    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 Is World's Fastest Graphics Card

    Innovative Dual GPU Design Is Also Dramatically Quieter Than Competitive Products

    SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/24/2011 -- NVIDIA today introduced the GeForce® GTX® 590, the fastest dual graphics card available today which also happens to be the world's quietest too. Powered by dual NVIDIA Fermi™-class GPUs on a single card, the GTX 590 is designed for über enthusiasts and those looking to build the ultimate PC gaming rig.

    With a combined 1024 NVIDIA CUDA® architecture cores, 3GB of GDDR5 memory, 6 billion transistors and over 2200 individual components all packed into an 11 inch dual slot card, the GTX 590 delivers a staggering 32 tessellation engines that can power today's cutting edge DX11 games at resolutions of 2560x1600 and higher. With four separate video outputs on each card, consumers can configure their PC with four independent displays, or they can span their gaming across 3 3D displays, at a resolution up to 5760x1080 for an intense, immersive, stereoscopic gaming experience utilizing NVIDIA 3D Vision™ Surround technology.

    Really? Some benchies seem to dispute that claim.


      No it's not..although it may be the fastest to burn up.

        Hmmm. Now that they're both out, I have to say, AMD's performance for the win, AMD's elegance for the lose (the shoe is completely on the other foot now). I absolutely HATE AMD's reliance on brick shaped coolers, totally ignoring air flow needs for use in multi card setups with only standard spacing between the PCIe slots. GTX 590's size and cooler design are WAY more elegant then the giant brick.

        I might just get a second GTX580 and blow them both out of the water

          Now at AMD the 6990 title says "Faster than the worlds fastest graphics card"

          AMD for the clear win here. The 6990 is just plain better.

            Only skimmed one review(AT), but it seems about even with the 6990. One or the other Wins depending on Game or other criteria. My old 4850 probably still beats it in Double Precision calcs though.
