NVIDIA's Cheech and Chong edition of the GeForce GTX590 enjoys benchmarking until it went Up In Smoke. NVIDIA plans to solve this issue by throwing the GeForce GTX590 into the gym for the next few months and revising various pieces of the card so it doesn't fail, furthermore so it is better competition against the AMD Radeon HD6990.
This change in hardware will include new inductors which means a replacement baseplate is needed, sounds easy, doesn't it? But, this effects the sizing and dimensions of current GTX 590 waterblocks. This means 3rd party cooling solutions won't work on this new Butterfly-edition GTX590, until then the GTX590 stays in it's cocoon slowly evolving into a green beast that is sure to get a thrashing by reviewers, enthusiasts and green lovers on release.
