NVIDIA Announces The New 'World's Fastest' Dual GPU GeForce GTX 590

As teased yesterday by NVIDIA today the company announced the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590.

The new high end, meaning very expensive and extra powerful, GTX 590 is designed for the ├╝ber enthusiasts and those looking to build the ultimate PC gaming rig. With dual NVIDIA Fermi class GPUs the card is taughted by NVIDIA as the "fastest dual graphics card available today."

With a combined 1024 NVIDIA CUDA architecture cores, 3GB of GDDR5 memory, 6 billion transistors and over 2200 individual components all packed into an 11 inch dual slot card, the GTX 590 delivers a staggering 32 tessellation engines that can power today's cutting edge DX11 games at resolutions of 2560x1600 and higher. The core is clocked at 607 MHz, the shaders are clocked at 1214 MHz, and the memory is clocked at 853 MHz for a memory data clock rate of 3414 MHz. This gives you a total effective memory bandwidth of 327.7 GB/s and a texture fill rate of 7.7 GigaTexels/s.

All that power means the GTX 590 is a bit of a power hungry beast, which should be expected. It has a Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 365 Watts pushing the recommended PSU rating to 700watts.
