Nvidia announces new dual-GPU graphics card
Press release, March 25; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Friday 25 March 2011]

Nvidia has introduced the GeForce GTX 590, the fastest dual graphics card available from the company. Powered by dual Nvidia Fermi-class GPUs on a single card, the GTX 590 is designed for enthusiasts and those looking to build the ultimate gaming PC.

With a combined 1024 Nvidia CUDA architecture cores, 3GB of GDDR5 memory, six billion transistors and over 2200 individual components all packed into an 11-inch dual slot card, the GTX 590 delivers 32 tessellation engines that can power today's DirectX11 games at resolutions of 2560 by 1600 and higher. With four separate video outputs on each card, consumers can configure their PC with four independent displays, or they can span their gaming across three 3D displays, at a resolution up to 5760 by 1080.

With Nvidia SLI technology, gamers can increase their PC's gaming performance by adding a second GeForce GTX 590, for enabling Quad SLI gaming mode.

The GTX 590 also features a special cooling system and dual vapor chambers, which deliver both performance and acoustics. Measured with a standard decibel meter, the GTX 590 clocks in at 48dB, more than two times quieter than the closest competitive product under full graphics load, the company claimed.

With an estimated selling retail price starting at US$699, the GeForce GTX 590 is available starting today from the world's leading add-in card partners, including Asustek Computer, EVGA, Gainward, Gigabyte Technology, Inno3D, Micro-Star International (MSI), POV, Palit, and Zotac.
