EVGA Displays Non-Reference Dual-GPU and GTX 570 Graphics Cards

Graphics card vendors seldom display their products based on unannounced GPUs in trade shows, unlike motherboard vendors. That said, a certain new graphics card by EVGA is making waves at CES 2011. The double-slot, long graphics card presumably uses two GF110 GPUs to make a SLI on a stick solution. There are two possibilities about the configuration of the two GPUs looking at the eight 1 Gbit memory chips (four per GPU area) on the reverse side of the card: First being 1 GB per GPU over 256-bit memory interface; and second being 12 memory chips on the other side, amounting for 1280 MB per GPU memory over 320-bit memory interface for a core config identical to that of the GeForce GTX 570.

EVGA treaded carefully as to project the card as one of its own design, which does not conform to any future unannounced NVIDIA dual-GPU SKU. For this reason, EVGA designed its own triple-fan cooler which has fans nested inside the shroud, using a large aluminum heatsink. EVGA used the same styling on a smaller graphics card with two fans. The smaller card is EVGA's non-reference design GeForce GTX 570. It uses a more compact PCB than that of NVIDIA, and provides better display connectivity in the form of full-size HDMI and DP, alongside two DVI connectors.

interesting now we'll see how it fares against the upcoming 6990 seeing as the 570 and 6970 trade blows.

curious why the 2 gpus ar so far away from each other on the pcb though

it looks really really rough this probably isn't the final design for it but it definitely could be a monster

I hope the front panel can be taked off easily, otherwise it'll be a pain to clean the dust of it.

To infinity ... and beyond!
not bad really, dual 8 pin vs quad 6 pin

Hope this reaches the market! It has been awhile since the GTX 295 (loved it).

I honestly think they would do better to have a dual GPU GF104 with all the Sp's enabled...

it should fit in a 300w envelope, and still cream a GTX580 by a decent margin. maybe Nvidia is waiting for AMD to play their hand this time before finalising specs/clocks on a new dual gpu card.

Nonsense and Crazy

This GTX 595 graphic card is absolutely ridiculous.

That looks epic! I would totally sell my GTX 470, my 470 water block, and my soul to get one of those! :eek:

makes distributing power easier between the two gpu's having all the power circuitry in the middle of the card

Runs on a single sink. That way, it wont saturate one spot with heat that much

There is a short 1 min video on the interwebs with this card at CES and the rep says it has 2GB of RAM (2 x 1GB), so speculation that this is a dual 570 card is incorrect. He also says triple 3d enabled monitor surround setups are supported.

This surely is a dual GPU card, but the reason why they couldn't say what GPU's is using is because it uses a couple of unannounced GTX560's, and those are under NDA.

If it had GF110's or GF104's then there wouldn't be any problem revealing the full specs.
