ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 Launch Review

3DMark 11 Professional / Heaven Benchmark – DirectX 11

Futuremark recently released 3DMark 11 so we thought to start the comparisons for this review we would run the cards through a benchmark using the application. We set the program to use the Extreme profile and these are the results we obtained.


Benchmark Results

Another recent release is the Unigene Heaven 2.5 benchmark and again we have run the cards though this. We tested at 1920×1080 with 4x anti-aliasing, 16x anisotropic filtering and Extreme Tessellation.


Benchmark Results

Looking first to the 3DMark results we see the Radeon has a small advantage over the GTX 590 at our tested settings, roughly 250 points separate the two cards. When we move to the Heaven benchmark things change however and the GTX is on average 10 frames per second faster than the 6990.

Looking at the comparison with the GTX 580 we see that there is some decent scaling going on with the 590 as it exceeds the single GPU by some way, most impressively on the Heaven benchmark.
