The 590’s have arrived and this is Zotacs card:
With a pair of Fermi GPUs delivering a combined 1024 unified shaders, and a massive 3GB of GDDR5 memory, this card is ready to take on anything. The Zotac GTX 590 has 3 DVI ports, and a mini Displayport, ready for seamless triple monitor gaming straight out of the box.
“Our ZOTAC® GeForce® GTX 590 is engineered to deliver the absolute best PC gaming experience available. With the ZOTAC® GeForce® GTX 590, gamers can experience triple-monitor gaming with DirectX® 11 technology, stereoscopic 3D effects and realistic physics processing on a single graphics card for the first time,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC® International.
