ASUS Releases the Dual-Core GTX 590
Taipei, Taiwan (March 22, 2011)
The most powerful NVIDIA® graphics card ever created with a dual-GPU model offers unmitigated gaming performance for hardcore enthusiasts
— Presenting more graphics processing output than any single-board product developed to date, the ASUS GTX 590 uses dual NVIDIA® GF110 cores. With ASUS exclusive Voltage Tweak to drive the card at 918MHz, it enables DirectX® 11 gaming in the highest resolutions possible and with all details and effects turned on to maximum, as well as smooth and realistic 3D gaming and movies through NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ Surround for three-screen displays.
- Dual GF110 GPUs boost performance over the former top-of-the-line GTX 580 reference design, enhancing graphics processing capabilities for the strongest NVIDIA® Fermi-based product delivered to date on a single circuit board. The large 3GB video memory allotment uses fast GDDR5 technology and a dual 384-bit memory interface for improved bandwidth and interconnectivity with other system components.
- The ASUS GTX 590 uses a core that runs at 612MHz, making it the fastest NVIDIA® dual-core graphics card ever launched. ASUS exclusive overvolting utility allows to push ASUS GTX 590 even further providing end users with even more noticeable enhancements to in-game smoothness and responsiveness.
- Full support for NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ Surround, driven by the capabilities of this dual-GPU card, easily handles full HD 3D output simultaneously on three displays.
- Two GPUs balanced and optimized on a single board mean the GTX 590 offers more than double the power of the GTX 580, running in always-on 2-way SLI™ by default.
