so ati set the price/performance point and nvidia follows?
if the 6990 was not here, we would probably pay a 'bit' more for the 590...


edit : leaked benches...1920 resolution testing for this level of performance? made me laugh...
cranck that sheet up and see if it still keeps up.

1920 resolution testing is needed but only including that is purely idiotic.

We'll have the usual: 1920 , 2560 with and without 8xAA, 5760 with and without AA, Folding numbers (averaged over 30 hours this time), sound readings of a few cards (only got my db meter yesterday), etc.

As for price, it is what it is. IMO, in this range you really can't fault pricing since these types of cards have a massive amount of staying power. I mean even now a GTX 295 more than holds its own against most other cards out there (minus the DX11 support of course).

ETA is March 24th 9AM Eastern Time.

Look at this post from Overclockers UK:

GeForce GTX 590 Key Features Revealed - Page 12 - Overclockers UK Forums

There is a few pics of a Gigabyte 590 in a toolbox-like case+ a mouse bundled...anyway, so much for the rumor of having only ASUS and EVGA cards...

I know everyone has their own opinion on sound, but I have to say, very happy to hear you have db meter now! That let's us decide how loud cards are relative to each-other and know what db ratings we find acceptable.

I second Draem on the purchasing of shiny new testing gear...

On the 590 topic...I'm not impressed by the Bandwidth...is it a normal thing? my single hd5870has 156Gb/s and that 590 not much more...

Anything I miss?

I dont get why everyone scoffs @ 1920x1200 resolutions. My system still has a few games that chop like hell running them full bore on a single gtx 480. Sucks the price tag is so bloody high on this as I want a dual gpu solution myself, guess ill be getting a 2nd gtx 480.
