NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 590: Duking It Out For The Single Card Kingby Ryan Smith on March 24, 2011 9:00 AM EST
Finally among our benchmark suite we have Wolfenstein, the most recent game to be released using the id Software Tech 4 engine. All things considered it’s not a very graphically intensive game, but at this point it’s the most recent OpenGL title available. It’s more than likely the entire OpenGL landscape will be thrown upside-down once id releases Rage later this year.
Wolfenstein ends up being another title the GTX 590 and 6990 are quite close at, largely because the game quickly becomes CPU Limited after a point. Still, the GTX 590 OC picks up almost 10%, and even the EVGA GTX 590 is good for around 2%.
