NVIDIA’s GTX 590 (Dual-GPU) Flagship Currently Sold Out

Well down in the States at least, but with the price point being high and limited supply/yield – it’s no real surprise especially when there’s only a couple thousand cards available in Europe alone. Popular retailers in the US like Best Buy, Newegg and TigerDirect are all out on this new part, but it can still be purchased overseas however.

There’s rumors that NVIDIA may slash prices in the European market because of the initial marked MSRP at about €603-610, and they may offer rebates for customers in that region to get these cards moving off the shelves.

“The GTX 590 is the best dual GPU product ever built,” said Drew Henry, general manager of GeForce GPU business at NVIDIA. “With leading performance, support for multi-monitor 3D gaming, Quad SLI, and an acoustic envelope that begs to be heard for how quiet it is, the GTX 590 epitomizes what a perfect dual graphics card looks, performs, and sounds like.”

If you happen to be a proud, new owner of a GTX 590 there’s new beta drivers NVIDIA released earlier today that add support for their flagship card as well as the GTX 560 and 550 Ti. They say that there are performance gains over the 266.58 drivers when using any GeForce 400/500 series GPUs and up to a 516% boost in Dragon Age 2 (only for SLI, 2560×1600, 8xAA/16xAF, Very High, SSAO On).

The 270 series (and later) drivers also introduce NVIDIA Update that will keep your PC up-to-date with the latest graphics drivers through notifications when new drivers are available. We got the links below if anyone’s interested.
