Originally slated for March 22, NVIDIA has reportedly delayed the launch of its new high-end GeForce GTX 590 graphics card to March 24, sources told Expreview.com. The reason for this delay is not known, and NVIDIA isn't confirming this delay. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 is a dual-GPU high-end graphics card that uses two GF110 GPUs in an SLI on a stick solution.

It's just two days....

Beside who buys these stuff on launch day these days :rolleyes:

I've learned that the best time to buy a graphic card is around 3 to 5 months after the official release, you get better versions, better coolers, bundles and drivers.

hey or maybe the gpu dies melt thru the substrate like the 8600m gt's did in most of the laptops they were installed, and like that last time they're coming up with an excuse to absolve all responsibility! what else could they be doing in 2 days? maybe just trying to drum up some marketing momentum by getting some headlines before release? who really cares.

Probably international sea shipping logistics all f'ed up after tsunamis and radiation issues in Japan. It is very easy to see that the incredible disruption in Asia would have a the knock-on effect to cargo shipments. Ships are in the wrong place, waiting for dock time, rerouted, shipping company staff working overtime, etc. etc.

It takes more than 2 days to "get more stock in" or "tweak a bios"

i agree with completelybonkers... his theory seems about right. Let's not forget, all of our hardware is made in asia.

nvidia never even confirmed the 22nd was the release day so the 24th could be the real release and not a delay?

I am guessing they added a optional 2nd BIOS setting like the 6990 has that runs full speed over PCI-E specs.

That's one badass looking card, though in many ways it resembles the HD 6990, particularly the cooling solution.

lol no.

Shipping from China to the U.S. takes a month. This is an ultra high end card. Shipping to many regions around the globe in small volume, air is the only sensible option. I bet 10CAD that the entire stock of GTX 590 can't even fill a container right now(one 20-foot container can fit over 3000 cards in retail packaging).

Yep if they are using Samsung memory,Will take longer then 2 days I bet,They have to go through radiation checks and what not,Hell GM in Kentucky and the Toyota plants shut down .

I should list Japans manufacture effected by this
1,Samsung
2,Sanyo
3,Sony
4,Honda
5,Kawasaki
6,Toyota

These will effect all of asia for at least 3 months I1m guessing,If Nvidia has ties to Samsung for memory you could see at least 4 months delay on GTX590 Unless they go with the other guys that AMD use.Who here remembers the Taiwan earthquake in 98-99 when all the memory prices shot up ....
