Hot on the heals of AMD launching their new HD 6990 graphics card and consequently taking the ‘Worlds Fastest’ graphics card title, NVIDIA is now thought to be launching its new GeForce GTX 590 in just two weeks, on the 22nd March 2011, according to Expreview.
The new NVDIA GeForce GTX 590 packs dual-GF110 cores and features a 1024 CUDA Core, 3GB GDDR5 memory, dual-8pin external power connectors for the required 375W TDP and with it NVIDIA will be undoubtedly looking to take first place from AMD for the worlds fastest graphics card.
March 22nd also happens to be the release date of the highly anticipated Crysis 2 sequel. Coincidence or careful planning by NVIDIA?
If you are looking to upgrade make sure your power supplies are fit for the job as eating 375W will definitely require something a little more specialist than a standard PSU.
