My System Specs

The gf100 core was too power hungry for dual gpu on single pcb design. So they had to wait for the revised gf110 to be able to create the gtx 590. Even there, they had to downclock the cores to fit in a reasonable thermal limit.

For the 400 series, the closest to the gtx 490 is the gtx 460 2win, sporting two gf104 cores on a single pcb. Here's my sweet little folding beast:
