ASUS GeForce GTX 590
Being king of the hill is such a fleeting thing most of the time. The battle to get there is often arduous, and the taste of victory is sweet, but it is usually short-lived, succumbing to the one behind you in their quest to reach the top. And so it goes, and the cycle extends to graphics cards to be sure; AMD and Nvidia, forever battling like two Titans.
The one sitting atop of the mountain recently has been AMD with their dual-GPU Radeon 6990 card, at least until now. And as we expect, their reign may be very short-lived, as today’s launch of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 signals the coming of a new juggernaut. Essentially bringing SLI performance to a single card, this new GTX 590 looks awfully impressive on paper, with some big claims of top performance that manages to maintain low temperatures and noise levels.
An interesting note with this launch is that only a few Nvidia partners get to produce this card under their umbrella, and ASUS is one of those chosen few. ASUS is no stranger to the GeForce lineup, and they’ve pulled out all the stops for this card, even going so far as to offer voltage tweaking capabilities to extract the maximum overclocking potential from the GTX 590.
We’re performance junkies just as much as the next person, but what happens when you drop two of the fastest graphics cores on the planet onto a single card and juice it up? Oh, it’s something very special indeed. Buckle up, you’re about to take a drive in the fast lane. On the Autobahn.
