NVIDIA has had a great last 9 months, from the struggles of the initial Fermi launch with the lacklustre 400-series, they've come back very, very strong with the release of the GTX460 and the entire 500-series lineup. Today is no different with NVIDIA launching their new flagship GPU the GeForce GTX 590.

The GeForce GTX 590 is a dual-Fermi based design with two, yes two GTX580 cores on the one card. It is pretty insane but no different to other ventures like the GTX295 or AMD's Radeon HD6990. The card seems to hit and miss where it beats the HD6990, but feel free to check out a bunch of reviews:
