The Card

NVIDIA's GTX 590 is one of the longest graphics cards on the market today, its length is about 28 cm or 11 inches.

The card requires two slots in your system.

The card has three DVI ports and one mini-DisplayPort port. Due to the dual GPU design, you can use all outputs at the same time. However, AMD still offers a more complex and flexible output configuration on their GPUs, where up to six active outputs are possible.

An HDMI sound device is also included in the GPU. The HDMI interface is HDMI 1.4a compatible which includes Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, AC-3, DTS and up to 7.1 channel audio with 192 kHz / 24-bit output. The new revision also brings support for Blu-ray 3D movies which will become important later this year when we will see first Blu-ray 3D titles shipping.

You may combine up to two GTX 590 cards from any vendor in SLI. At this time there is no driver that supports Quad SLI configurations though, NVIDIA has promised that this will be released at a later date.

Here are the front and the back of the card, high-res versions are also available (front, back). If you choose to use these images for voltmods etc, please include a link back to this site or let us post your article.
