How well can the GeForce GTX 590 run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 590 GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games. GeForce GTX 590 is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

How well will the GeForce GTX 590 run 2019 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. The GeForce GTX 590 can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 335 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

The GeForce GTX 590 graphics card is returning a playable performance on Borderlands 3 at 1080p of 26 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is FIFA 20 which we saw got strong frame rates of 94 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Death Stranding, which is predicted to get 4 FPS under tests.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Borderlands 3 to see how the GeForce GTX 590 dealt with it. It scored up a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 51 FPS, Medium: 40 FPS, High: 27 FPS and Ultra: 19 FPS. Next we looked at FIFA 20 which was good with a 71 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Death Stranding that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 3. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 590 we get the impression that it is a reasonable choice for most modern games at 1440p, but you may encounter some need to adjust graphics settings down from Ultra to High in some cases to improve gaming stability.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 590 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 590 in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 590? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 590 is the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, which is 89% more powerful and can run 901 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, as it can run 685 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 39% increased graphics performance.

GeForce GTX 590 Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 590 is a dual graphics solution that consists of two GeForce GTX 580.
As usual and a hindrance of dual-GPU graphics cards, the clock frequencies are reduced, when compared to a solution of GeForce GTX 580 in SLI. However, thanks to great driver support, its performance is comparable to the SLI solution. GeForce GTX 590 also consumes less energy.
This GPU is capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings. It needs to be paired with a powerful Quad-Core, such as 2600K. However, performance may hinder at extreme resolutions (2560x1600 or higher) with upcoming extremely demanding games, in 2013 (e.g. Crysis 3).
Upgrading from this GPU to anything less than a solution of GeForce GTX 690 SLI or something similar fast is useless and not worth it.

There would be a slight bottleneck from that CPU. Try getting a better one. Be aware that the early versions of this card were known for melting, occasionally.

(by which I mean that it could be an early model, or could even already have melted if its condition is not mentioned)
