NVIDIA’s Dual-GPU GeForce GTX 590 Monster Coming Next Month

"NVIDIA has a dual-GPU GeForce GTX 590 cards in the works which it plans to release in February. "

Just yesterday we had specifications of AMD’s powerful Radeon HD 6990 officially revealed by the company... And today there is news of NVIDIA working on a similar dual-GPU card to rival AMD. According to the report by Nordic Hardware, NVIDIA has a dual-GPU GeForce GTX 590 cards in the works which it plans to release in February.

NVIDIA has already taken the lead in graphics performance with its recent single GPU releases, most notable of which is this week’s GTX 560 Ti card. The new rumored GTX 590 will be a much bigger monster than the GTX 560 Ti as it will be a dual-GPU card; it will also be NVIDIA’s first dual-GPU card since the GeForce GTX 295 in January 2009.

For the GeForce GTX 590, NVIDIA is going with two tweaked GF110 GPUs, both crafted on a 40nm architecture. This will give the card 1024 CUDA Cores which, combined with the 3GB of GDDR5 memory on a 2 x 384 bit interface makes the GTX 590 an absolute powerhouse of a card. While there is no word about the operating frequencies, the word on the street is that is should be around the same mark as the GeForce GTX 580.

If we look at the GeForce GTX 580, we can also get a fair idea of the amount of power this monstrous card will be drawing - the GTX 580 eats up 244W. The card will reportedly also sport an extra large heatsink with a 90mm fan in the centre (very much like the Radeon HD 6990). If the reports are correct, the card should be hitting markets some time in February and will directly take on AMD’s upcoming Radeon HD 6990 Antilles dual-GPU.

So has anyone bought one of their cards? More specifically a GTX460 xlr8 1GB card.
I am on a budget and this card is 30€ cheaper then the nearest{EVGA} card, if they are a junk company then i will muster the extra 30€ but if they are a good preformer i would rather save that cash {this money im spending was ment for a 2500k build but my GPU has died :( }. Im not looking to o/c the card i just need it to do what it should!
All help welcome!

I bought PNY, not GTX 460s, but they where good cards. I never had to deal with their support because I never had an issue with the cards so I can't commend on that. You should be fine. ;)

PNY are IIRC always reference-cards, so if you go for
liquid cooling - take it!
I have had a lot graphic cards in past. From EVGA to
MSI to ASUS and even to PNY. The PNY cards where the
only ones I never had to deal with support. So I'd say
they are kind of a robust construction.

To come to a conclusion I really recommend PNY cards.
I have had the best experiences with them, they OC
really good, are reference-designed so quite perfect
for liquid cooling and: PNY is the one and only
manufacturer chosen by NVidia which builds the
Quadro and Tesla-series. And these are really much more
stability-related than our consumer-electronic-GFX :-)

Mr. Strawberry
seen a couple of videos on youtube where people have said how much they like them
i had a PNY 8400GS many years ago what was good and still going strong
so overall i would have to say they are good
