Hey GeForce gamers, I am excited to introduce our new flagship dual-GPU graphics card – GeForce GTX 590.  With 1024 CUDA cores, 6 billion transistors, 3GB of GDDR5 memory, and over 2200 individual components all packed into an 11 inch dual slot PCB, GTX 590 is nothing short of an engineering marvel.  Designed to deliver not only the world’s fastest DirectX 11 performance, but also the world’s quietest acoustics for a dual chip graphics card, the GTX 590 offers 50% faster performance than GTX 580 while nearly matching its little brother’s award winning acoustics.  NVIDIA’s Tom Petersen (aka TAP) gives the rundown on the new GTX 590 graphics card in this short video:

One of the exciting features that GTX 590 brings is the ability to build incredible gaming rigs by combining two cards in a Quad SLI configuration.   Check out our article on Building a Quad SLI PC for information on Quad SLI certified components and system design recommendations.

Starting at a suggested e-tail price of $699 USD, GeForce GTX 590 is available today from leading e-tailers and system builders worldwide.   Learn more about GTX 590 over at

Happy gaming!
