Hot on the heels of AMD's recently released Radeon HD 6990, Nvidia introduced its own new flagship video card today, the GeForce GTX 590.
Nvidia's first dual-GPU video card since the GTX 295 in early 2009, the GTX 590 unites a pair of GF110 GPUs (the kind used in the GTX 580, the fastest single-GPU card on the market) on a single card. This means you get of 1,024 CUDA processing cores, 128 texture units, 96 ROP units, and 32 tessellation engines. The card's graphics clock runs at 607 MHz, its processor clock at 1,215 MHz, and its memory clock at 3,414 MHz. It's loaded with 3,072MB of GDDR5 memory for the frame buffer, which operates over a 384-bit memory interface.
