GeForce GTX 590 Cooler Shroud Design Surfaces

VR-Zone got a hold of the cooler shroud design of NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 590 graphics card. The drawing reveals something very similar to that of the GeForce GTX 295 rev. 2 (or single-slot), and tells us a bit about the cooler. The cooler will use a large fan (probably 80 mm in diameter) to blow air on to two heatsinks on its either sides. Channels, and the heatsinks themselves will guide air across both ends of the cooler. Hot air from the first GPU (closest to the display connectors) will exhaust from the rear bracket, while that from the second GPU (farthest from the display connectors), will exhaust into the case. There are spaces on either sides of the fan for partner product artwork. There is more space on top. Next to the cutout for the power connectors, is the GeForce logo. NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 590 is a dual-GPU graphics card based on two GF110 cores. It will be released on the 22nd of March.

same design with fan at middle of the bord like hd 6990

i think not a like HD 6990 but like a GTX 295 :D

So full GF110 512 shaders, wow this thing is going to run strong.

i love this cooler design!!, it's much better dan other reference cards hd4870x2 with one fan @ the end of the card, but i would love to see a lower power dual gpu card with 2 pcb's , i really love the design of the 9800gx2, amd should swapp the fan of that 6990 into a normal fan, that's proabbly save's alot of noise and they are getting better temps

My guess is two 570 cores because no one has come out and said two full fat gf110 cores. Nvidia are leaving themselves a lot of wiggle room

didnt btarunr say...

An alleged partner presentation slide leaked to the internet reveals quite a bit more about the GeForce GTX 590 than what we already know. To begin with, it lays to rest speculations surrounding the shader configuration, each of the two GF110 GPUs have all 512 CUDA cores enabled. Next, the full width of the memory interface is utilized, giving you 1536 MB per GPU, or 3 GB of total memory on the card.

The rest are fascinating features, such as a removable cooler shroud that lets you clean the card from time to time (you might need to clean it now and then for the best cooling performance), heatsinks that use vapor-chamber technology, getting rid of those pesky heat-pipes, high-grade 12-layer PCB that uses 2 oz copper layers, and a 10-phase VRM (looks like 4+1 phase per GPU). As expected, the final iteration of the card needs to draw power from two 8-pin PCI-E power connectors. "Barely Street Legal"? Is it because they'll throw you out of LAN parties for having too much of a performance advantage? Hmmm.

so it would be 2 "full fat gf110 cores" correct?

Yeah and it would be tge first time its been mentioned.
