nvidia finally admitted that 590gtx was a pos gpu with weak VRM lol..

Quote:
Straight after the GeForce GTX 590 was released the first reports came in from overclockers that pushed a little bit too much voltage into the GPU, making the card in some cases die. It seems that the power design of the card is thus week that NVIDIA quickly locked down Voltage adjustment in this card series.

And for an enthusiast class product, that makes it a little well a little bit of a lackluster ?

The latest tail from the web however is that in June a revised model will be released, this updated version of the hardware will get a much more sturdy VRM circuitry, mosFETs, capacitors, etc.

Once the new revision is out we'll be certain to test it and see of it can clock much better and thus compete a little more fiercely with the Radeon HD 6990, that does allow its ass to be kicked in terms of overclocking.

They never admitted it was a pos gpu, they admitted to the vrm not being up to par. Not the same thing.

Or it could be they just chose to fix the one "flaw" the card had, at least if you want to pump a bunch more electricity through it in a ham handed attempt to run it far out of spec with reference cooling.

Mine has been running great since before launch day, and is still by far the best card on the planet in my opinion. I wouldn't trade it for any other, seriously.

Even when the VRM issue is resolved, i still wouldn't buy a GTX590 for 2 reasons


1: It's power use is excessive and well beyond the PCI-e limit of 300 watts even at stock clocks, so it isn't a PCI-e certified card.


2: The cooling is still going to be problematic when there's 365 watts TDP to dissipate(at stock clocks of course) and using a stock air cooler can only do so much no matter how well designed it is, or the power protection circuitry works or the application detection within the drivers to throttle down the cards( furmark anyone).


I'd do the same thing i did to these GTX580's:




And at 900/1800/2200mhz clocks, wich is way above what the GTX590 ships at, the load temperatures don't even hit 65*C with water cooling....It's in a league of it's own basically, and i think they should have marketed the GTX590 with a built in water block exclusively, as it'll take pretty high end setups to use these 700$ cards effectively and users with disposable income for such luxuries.

Just stating my opinion on the GTX590 and the reasons for it....It applies even more to the HD6990 while i'm at it since it is even noisier and even more power hungry card than the GTX590 given the clocks it operates at.


And no,the great performance they get is no excuse to allow such high power use in the first place.

You know the 590 uses more power than the 6990... right?

That's what I was thinking. The GTX 590 uses more power at stock. In AWSUM mode, the HD 6990 uses more, but the performance is higher too.

I was under the impression that the GTX590 is rated at 365 watts TDP at it's stock clocks, while the HD6990 is rated at 375 watts TDP with the bios switch set in position 1(non Awsum).


In Awsum mode, the TDP on the HD6990 shoots up to 450 watts however, though i'm pretty sure that the GTX590 gets to the same ballpark quite easily if it's overclocked...Either way, it's far too high for a single video card even if there's 2 GPU's onboard.
