    World Records are so far hold by Quad-SLI GTX 580s ;)
    Single GPU cards are simply alot easier to cool for extreme OCing.
    Not to mention they usually have stronger VRMs than their dual GPU counter part.

    So, is this 1.5GB or 3GB per GPU? If 1.5GB it's not worth any more than the 590 and will still be walked on by the 6990 at resolutions and IQ settings that matter for a card of this pedigree.

    Ooh, 6gb on the card would be nice. That's more VRAM than I have system RAM :laugh:

    Incorrect, this is significantly more powerful, and with more cores than the 590. The 590 is what is more worthless. It is two 570s, yet if you ran two 570s in SLI, you would get better framerate, and a cheaper price than the 590. If anybody wants the power/performance of this asus mars 2, I would recommend using a workstation card. Preferably the Quadro 4000 if your budget is over 1k for a single card; However, the Quadro 2000 is roughly the same price (maybe a little more) than the GTX590, but with much greater performance and lifespan.

    With only 256 CUDA cores to the GTX590's 1000, even the Quadro 4000 will not come close to competing in games.
