Windows 7: Nvidia GTX590 released

NVIDIA's dual-GPU GeForce GTX 590 emerges, can't slay the Radeon HD 6990 titan -- Engadget

Bunch of review links at the bottom of the Engadget post. Bit of a beast. Slower than a 6990 at the moment. Driver updates will most likely improve performance. It is a pair of GTX580s slapped on there, but they've been underclocked, so as expected, a dual GTX580 setup is still faster.

Don't plan on overclocking if you get one,

Seems some of them like to turn themselves into $700 paperweights.

If you have the money for this or the Ati 6990 then water cooling these bad boys with one of these little widgets makes tons of sense.

Nvidia have said it's a driver problem that doesn't have the proper overcurrent protection. The latest drivers apparently fix this.

Rest assured that GTX 590 operates reliably at default voltages, and our 267.84 launch drivers provide additional levels of protection.

It's bit of a disappointing debut

It is really. Considering there was no dual GPU card for the GTX4xx series, and how well the GTX580s scale in SLI, you'd have thought more effort would have gone in to it. Hopefully be better in a few driver updates. Though it doesn't help when it's been severely underclocked in every area.

I suspect it will improve, but at the moment there doesn't sound like much safe headroom for OCing. Time will tell, but as it stands I wouldn't buy one.

On paper the 6990 really seems to be the better x2 card overall. Unfortunately.
