Nvidia GTX 590 Reviewed, Benchmarks, Temperatures, Noise


At last Nvidia has release the GTX 590, and GTX 590 reviews are out! As I said in my previous article about the release information for the GTX 590,.

I hoped that Nvidia could conquer the issues that AMD had with the noise level. And guess what? They did.

There is however, much more to this story.

Read reviews of the GTX 590 here:

To be honest, that puts people like me in a bind. I am an Nvidia fanboy at heart, even though my current 4870×2 has done me wonders. In a few short words, I can tell you exactly what will effect your decision.

Choose the GTX 590 if….

  • You want a quieter video card and aren’t using water cooling
  • The 6990 is a little too big for your case
  • You are an Nvidia fanboy
  • You will make use of tesselation and other Nvidia specific enhancements
  • You don’t want to do your own crossfire solution

Choose the Radeon HD 6990 if…

  • You want better, scaleable performance
  • You want to use slightly less power
  • Noise isn’t an issue to you (if you are not using watercooling)

That is it in a nutshell. But in reality, both are good cards. If you want faster performance and better temps and noise, then choose to do your own crossfire solution. Otherwise, there you have it.

    I chose gtx 590, less noise/less heat makes sense, but I’ll buy it only in a couple of months after MSI fixes all the drawbacks it has (if there are such), i hope MSI will produce the “Twin Fronz” version

    I agree with what you mean. Now what would you do if you could do watercooling?
