Zotac GTX590 SLI 5760x1080 Nvidia Surround Review

Today's test setup is identical to last weeks one for the HIS HD6990, except the obvious switch from AMD to nVidia hardware and drivers.
One thing that we're interested in on a personal level is the improvement from the latest ForceWare drivers. There has been a few minor revisions and one major update since we first reviewed the GTX590 and we can't wait to see if they've unleashed the beast.
Zotac GTX590 SLI using ForceWare 275.33 WHQL Drivers
Gigabyte Assassin X58 Motherboard
Intel Core i7 980X @ 4.4 GHz
6GB Mushkin Redline DDR3 RAM
Corsair AX1200 PSU
3x Iiyama Prolite E2473HDS
Windows 7 x64
We'll have three results in our graphs today. Firstly a single Zotac GTX590 @ 1080P on maximum settings. Then a single card in 5760x1080 using the same settings we used last week (pop and see that review if you're behind), then finally a three screen 5760x1080 setup on two Zotac GTX590s in SLI.
For our triple-monitor testing Iiyama kindly supplied us with three Prolite E2473HDS monitors.
They certainly have outstanding picture quality. The 2ms response time and wide viewing angles are perfect for three-screen gaming, and the 1920x1080 resolution is great for ensuring a lack of borders as 16:9 is so common.
