I found a leaked picture of the upcoming GTX 590's PCB from Galaxy, check it out :

http://www.techtree.com/India/News/Nvidia_Readies_Dual_GPU_GTX_590_for_March/551-114610-581.html

It looks like there'll be 2 8-pin connector, for a total of 450w.

There'll be a single SLI connector.

3 DVI outputs, this likely means that it will be Nvidia Surround Ready.

There also seems to be 8x256MB memory modules per GPU. This will allow for 2GB of dedicated memory for each GPU (4GB total).

With two of these, one will probably be able to heat his house throughout winter !

I just installed two GTX 580's. I did it not for the amazing performance, which it does produce but because I wanted to run three 1920 X 1200 monitors (5760 X 1200) which they also do amazingly well.

i agree. for some of us the entry level and mid range cards are all that we can afford. i truely hope that they do not intend to leave us out to dry.

That picture was made by a member on the Guru3D forum partly based on my suggestion after his first edition also at the link...Hmmmm

 

Here's a link

if it performs close to sli'ed 580s it will be a beast. if nvidia dont get a grip on their thermals, we are gonna need a 220v just to power nvidia based machines. personally i dont need all the performance that a single 580 gives. my ati 4870 still serves me very well. but there wouldnt be a market for things like this if it werent for rich people that has to have the best of everything and upgrade constantly. i can afford whatever but i choose not to waste money like that

3 6 pins? wtf? each 6 pin is 75 watts so 3 makes 225 plus 75 from the pcie making 300watts. why would they go 3 6 pins when its more standard to use 1 6 pin and 1 8 pin? makes no sense

No more than 700 bones? You goddamn people must have bathtubs that pour money, hats made of money, shoes made of money, money made of money, and a wife made of money. Hesus.

I hope that's not a real pic, because I would think the second fan would serve to block airflow out the back

We will have to wait and see the final numbers.  Im more about price/performance than anything else.  I sure hope it doesnt take 3 six pins to run, because that would suck, lol.

Little late Nvidia and AMD (althought AMD was never in my plans anyway) but I just dropped $360 on an EVGE GTX 570 SC from the EGG.  Came back in stock on friday, I placed my order and they were out of stock 6 hours later.  I didn't want to spend that kind of money, but as long as it's not defective 6 months down the road, I will be happy because combined with a water cooled I7 950 and 12 gigs of DDR3 1600, this thing is a BEAST.

Whoa...

Is that picture for real ? Because I've never seen a card with 3 PCIe 6-pin connectors !

It would mean 150w from the PCIe 2.0 lane, then 75w per 6-pin connector.

That would mean a maximum power draw of 375w for that card...Considering a single reference GTX 580 draws a maximum of 244w, I would have thought a GTX 590 would need at least 400w.

But then, if it were 2 8-pin connectors, there would have been a maximum of 450w available for that card. It would make more sense. If I were Nvidia, I'd even put another 8-pin connector, just to be sure...

 

Anyway, that card will rock !

I'm seriously considering buying two of those next summer...

I hope they won't be *too* expensive. No more than 700$ each, I hope.

Well, I guess we'll all see that in a couple of weeks eh ?
