GeForce GTX590 at PAX East; Asus, EVGA Only?

Ready for triple monitor 3D Vision?

Not to be outdone by AMD's Radeon HD 6990, Nvidia is supposedly going to unleash some dual-GPU goodness of its own at PAX East in Boston on March 11 to 13.

It's expected to be called the GeForce GTX 590, which will pack dual GF110 cores – the same that are right now inside the GTX 580. That means we will likely see 512 cores, 3GB of GDDR5, dual 384-bit memory bus and finally three DVI outputs for triple displays.

Those who wanted triple displays have always had AMD ATI Eyefinity cards as a solution, but Nvidia has the edge in providing 3D Vision along with it the multi-display. For those who love gaming in 3D, this will be the best solution yet on a single PCB.

Interestingly enough, sources close to Nvidia tell us that only Asus and EVGA will be offering the GeForce GTX 590 in the North American market. It's unclear why this will be the case, but hopefully we will get some kind of official response when the card goes public.

    "" It's unclear why this will be the case "" lemmesee if im psychic yet.....nvidia wants their flagship to be absolutely the best there is.....and since they wont make it themselves, they can only put it in the hands of the very best high end hardware makers. am i right?

    So it will be some kind of "limited-edition" card just for PR purposes.

    I think that the GTX 590 is supposed to have 2x512 cores for 1024 cores total.

    Do I need to buy a powerplant to run this card in SLi?

    Kidding :p

    Despite the absurdly high price, and the headaches of a dual-gpu on one card, and power and heat, I want one. I'm sure one day for $1100 it could be mine. Hey nVidia -- I have plenty of time on my hands at the moment. How about sending me one to put through the paces for a couple weeks?

    Thanks in advance for your patronage.

    Competition. A good thing. Can't wait to see some heads up benchmarking between this and the 6990.

    One GeForce GTX 580 is set to $450.
    It's easy to imagine the tag price for an GTX 590.
    I think about $799-899... it's probably why only 2 companies push the GTX 590.

    Hmmm, I see TWO 8-pin power connectors on that board. What a waste...

    And all this can be yours for the low low price of 1000 dollars!

    Also judging by the crazy tight packed PCB, I'm betting its underclocked.

    You mean it took them this long to support 3 display? ATI for life anyone?

    That's because nobody wants to be responsible when the card cooks itself and everything in the case!

    woohoo, time to retire my 295's, I think I will start with one and upgrade to two when the final SB boards get released around Christmas.

    Unfortunately, only people in snowy areas will be able to use it.

    in two years, a card that will cost $179 will outperform this by a factor of 4.

    From a sole gaming viewpoint, the graphics cards being put out lately all are above the threshold to play the latest and greatest games, hopefully games will catch up eventually. Seems like overkill when most computer games are not even that demanding
