Zotac GTX590 SLI 5760x1080 Review

Introduction

If you're a regular reader, and if not why not, you'll have been awaiting today's review.

After dipping our metaphorical toe in the triple-screen water with the HIS HD6990, today we're back with a nVidia offering in the form of the Zotac GTX590.

Of course we could just review a single card, but as Zotac kindly offered to lend us two so we could run in SLI we'll be testing in both forms today.

Technical Specifications

Popping along to the Zotac website we find the specifications for the GTX590. Unlike the AMD solution the nVidia multi-screen setup is based off of 3x DVI connections rather than mini display ports.

Otherwise it's a standard reference design card.

looks great, but as usual (lol) i have my concerns...

590s are dual GPU

2 are used in this sli test - cos that is the only way nvidia can run triple monitor setups

very expensive (~£1100)

HD6990 are also dual GPU

a single card is needed for triple eyefinity setups...... AND ONLY ONE WAS USED

half the price (of the nvidia counterpart) for tri-monitor (~£560)

and judging by the benchmarks - the 6990 wins (due to the forementioned)Quote
