NVIDIA's upcoming dual-GPU GeForce GTX 590 will not arrive in large quantities, Nordic Hardware reports the GF110 GPUs used for this card will be handpicked to ensure the lowest leakage.
As a result, the GeForce GTX 590 will largely be a PR product rather than a real money maker.
Last weeks we repored about graphics circuit maker NVIDIA working on the launch of its new flagship GeForce GTX 590. With 1024 CUDA cores and dual GF110 graphics circuit it is an extreme graphics card demanding a lot from the other component, where NVIDIA only uses the finest of its GPU samples and availability will be limited.
NVIDIA wants the GF110 circuits with the least leakage to maximize the clock frequencies without power consumption skyrocketing. It comes as no surprise that GeForce GTX 590 will be in limited supply. NVIDIA has no hopes of making any real money from this monster card, but it sees an opening to whip AMD and launch what it could call the fastest card in the world - no bars.
