    Since I haven't seen similar, here's a collection of GTX 590 rumored material floating around - release Thursday 3/24/11! Anyone else hyped?


    New Teaser with nVidia's Tom Peterson:

    From NordicHardware:

    Everything I'm reading from the leaked specs is leaning more towards pessimistic and dissappointment, but of course nothing leaked is anything final.

    What do you all think?

    Very excited about the release. Can't wait to see the benchmarks and CUDA performance.

    Go to B&Q and pickup one of those Stanley toolboxes then cut your own custom foam insert - job done! :D:D:D

    (a bit cheaper too)

    being a previous 295 owner I'm pretty hyped. Reading about nVidia's naming scheme, I believe the x0 names refer to each first step at the relevant model + specs, and the x5 version is the revised model under new architecture, or increased specs, thermals, etc.

    Going on that, it's reasonable to assume there'd eventually be a 595 building on the 590? I'd imagine a rough parallel to what the 580 was to the 480, what it "should have been".

    that graph doesn't look right, looks like it's barely any faster than 580.....

    My thoughts exactly?

    Dual 560 or 570 cores?

    Can't take that graph seriously until we know the state of the drivers and optimisation for each game. It seems to trounce the 580 in Devil May Cry 4 for instance. . . we should wait for bit-tech/anand/toms benchmarks etc. before making those assumptions.

    It comes . . . with a mouse? I thought the packaging on my card was excessive. (I don't know about you guys but I keep my original boxes for about a year and a half - in case I sell/return the part - these outrageous boxes are getting on my nerves. You could probably fit a whole mATX setup into that toolbox).

    I lol'd

    Soon you will all see the true goodies at hand.. Questions is the goodies still held by the 6990 or has it moved toward the 590,.

    You'll find out shortly I guess but all I can say is a smile is on hand regardless :)

    i read that as "no, not as fast as 6990".

    otherwise there should only be a few smiley.

    Those graphs do claim that the 580, in all but DMC4, is within a stone's throw of the 6990. I was led to believe the gap was larger than that, CPU bottleneck in the testing system, perhaps? It would explain the somewhat funky numbers.

    TBH: the 590 does feel a bit like a childish "Everything you have plus one!" retort if it's only that little bit faster, then again, optimized drivers may help lengthen the gap.
