Default Da big fat GTX590 dual-GF110 in FEB!!! [Nordic Hardware]

Hey,

I can't wait to see how this GTX590 compares to the Antilles HD6990!!!

GeForce GTX 590 in February with dual GF110 - www.nordichardware.com

Quote from said article from NORDIC HARDWARE:

Quote:
GeForce GTX 590 is the confirmed name of NVIDIA's coming graphics card flagship. With dual GF110 GPUs the beafy graphics card will offer 1024 CUDA cores and 3GB memory. Perhaps the most exciting is that the launch is set for February, in the same timeframe as AMD Radeon HD 6990 is expected to arrive.
Early PCB leaked pic...no power connector yet, maybe they'll come out of AMD's connector grinding shop lol...

dual 8 pin, so its not 2 neutered gf110?


GeForce GTX 590 will instead get considerably lower clock frequencies and voltages than GeForce GTX 580 that use a single GF110 GPU. This is a pretty obvious sacrifice considering that GTX 580 is rated 244 watt TDP, with just one GPU.



boohooo...drop clocks..what 50 mhz each? or 100? lol

lets see what goes up in smoke when people clock them up

I've seen many claims of a dual something nVidia, but never anything concrete.

So, I'll believe it when I see it.

I agree with ST, how many dual 4XX card have we seen last year? Even Asus leaked one on the Asus rog forum which never came out even as a ARES card. This is probably just a engi fun. But well, still sweet for the eyes :)

there were dual 6600,6800 from giga before nvidia got the idea lol...but fermi has been quite hot

and im really worried when they mention those underclocking, how severe will it be

good thing its the full core, but only dual 8 pins? i maen, for the electrically and mathematically non challenged that

could be ok but for the rest of us fools...hmmmmmmmmmm

Maybe it will just draw more out of the PCI-E slot and burn any motherboards that don't have supplemental power to the 24 pin

Just something leaked to keep the nVidia fans happy after the 6990 press this week. Believe it when I see it for sale.

Maybe Nvidia will finally have a card that beats out a 5970? This card is just silly though, I doubt it'll ever come to be.

I hope manufacturers don't take the same road as the 5970, i.e. mainly reference versions with varying stickers.
Someone needs to stick a TwinFrozr- style cooler on this thing. And factory OC-it. Bring out the big(ger) guns.
