Despite the fact that AMD has launched a dual GPU card with each recent generation of Radeon it has been some time since we have seen a product with similar design from NVIDIA. There were rumours that a 400 series model was in the works at various times however the last to make it to market was the GTX 295 in January 2009. When that card was launched it was two PCB’s sandwiched together into one "card" and when we reviewed it on launch day we found it offered good performance and scaling when compared to cards of the same generation.

With the recent release of the Radeon 6990 AMD overtook the GTX 580 in framerate performance, giving them the chance to claim they had the fastest graphics card available. On launch day we all knew that this might not last for long though as it was clear that NVIDIA was readying their long awaited dual GPU upgrade. Today that product is released and it is called the GTX 590.

With two GTX 580 based GPUs on one PCB can NVIDIA offer a desirable alternative to the 6990? We will find out as we take a look at the card in real world scenarios, including the retail version of Crysis 2 at 5760×1080 (with video footage), stereoscopic 3D and GPU computing.
