    Nvidia's claims are a bit cheap at the moment since it's twice already that they didn't deliver in time. So we must assume whenever marketing puts out a launch date, we just add 6 months to it.

    I assume this is just to hold people from buying AMD early as last times.

    And all AMD launch dates need to be held to the level of fail they suffered with the 2xxx series... Reply

    The HD 2000 series was Ati, the HD 5000 series and up is AMD. Reply

    How about Bulldozer? Wasn't that originally slated to release back in March or April? Reply

    Are there any plans for an answer to Eyefinity?
    I'd like to get one card to run my three monitors but I still need CUDA support.

    Uh, hello? 590GTX!

    I have been running 3 24" Alienware of this one card for some time now and works great even when gaming at 6000x1080. Yes it is a dual card but before the 590 you actually had to have two cards regardless and is smaller then one of my old 295's I used to have, is much quieter and draws less power then the two 295's it replaced.

    A product aimed at the top.1% (SLI) or 0.01% (595) of the market isn't an proper answer; merely a stopgap. Reply

    A product aimed at the top .1%? You mean like triple monitor users? Reply

    Not everyone who uses multiple screens is a gamer. For anything less (or even casual games) a 5450 is more than adequate. Nor do all multiple screen users who game do so on all three. If ATI/nVidia ever add support for PLP I'd be willing to give it a try at 4960x1600, until then I'm quite happy gaming on my center screen. Otherwise I find 3 screens very useful for everything else, and the 30" is a nice extravagance but hardly necessary; I'd rather have 3x20 than 1x30 given the choice (sadly at work I can't have either).

    The OP wants a single Nvidia card that supports the use of 3 monitors and CUDA for that reason the 590 is a proper answer.

    Technically, it is an expensive high end product and Nvidia should be supporting the use of multiple monitors on cards less than a 590 no question. However from experience the card is incredibly fast and works flawlessly with 3 monitors. I do a great deal of photography besides gaming and actual gaming is probably more like 10% of use. I greatly appreciate the use of 3 screens in Photoshop and the CUDA accelerated features. Gaming on 3 screens at the highest settings is a very nice bonus and breathtaking on auto racing sims.

    Ryan, what's your take on Charlie's article?:

    "Every stepping you have to make adds about 6 weeks to the tally, more if there are tough bugs to quash. The norm is two spins, so about 7-8 months, and AMD is right there now, February to September. If Nvidia is as successful, mid-Q1 is the earliest you should be looking at for Kepler arrival."

    Mid Q1 at the earliest would be like March - I wonder if Nvidia is going to paper launch on December 31st then hold availability until Feb/March...

    if any date in 2011, then Dec 10 or so, to hamper xmas sales for AMD. Reply

    You are asking a respectable journalist such as Ryan to comment on a fake like Charlie?

    Anyways, I could be wrong but I can't think of any major tradeshows in December so we are probably looking at CES 2012 for a launch. Fine with me anyways since I'm always broke from November to January from Christmas shopping. Now what I'm wondering if ATI can get a new graphics card out in time for Battlefield 3 launch. My computer runs BF:BC2 smoothly so I hope BF3 is the same. Can't wait for the beta.
