NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 590 sales 24 March 2011 at a recommended price of 699 USD. This is a Fermi architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 3072 MB (1536 MB per GPU) of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1.71 GHz are supplied, and together with 768-bit (384-bit per GPU) memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 327.7 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 11" (280 mm) (27.9 cm). An additional Two 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 365 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 24.48 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro P6000.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
