Today, members at XtremeSystems have posted slides containing the specifications and design of NVIDIA’s newest dual-GPU graphics card, the GTX 590. These slides are rumored to be from a NVIDIA partner presentation.

These slides present a card with 3 GB of DDR5 memory and dual-vapor chamber heatsink (similar to the HD 6990’s cooling). One neat feature is the removable cover of the heatsink, which allows for easy cleaning and re-application of TIM. Other notable features include a 12-layer, 2 oz. copper PCB, 10-phase GPU power supply and an onboard PCIE x16 bridge chip.

This card is NVIDIA’s response to the latest HD 6990 card from AMD. Let’s compare the HD 6990 and the rumored GTX 590 specs side by side to see how they stack up:

GPUHD 6990GTX 590
GPGPU Technology3072 ALU Stream Processors1024 CUDA Cores
Memory4 GB DDR53 GB DDR5
Power ConnectorsDual 8-PinDual 8-Pin

The real test will be head to head performance, which will have to wait until the GTX 590 is released, likely before the end of the month. Stay tuned for more details as they come in.
