CES 2011: EVGA reveals Nvidia's GeForce GTX 595, dual-GPU Fermi-based graphics card

While Nvidia and AMD have released newer and faster single-GPU graphics cards over the last few months, the biggest beast is still the AMD Radeon HD 5970, which packed a pair of Radeon HD 5870 GPUs onto a single piece of hardware. AMD is long rumored to be preparing the Radeon HD 6990 (code-named Antilles) as a sequel to the 5970, but Nvidia may have beaten it to the punch again.

While Nvidia and AMD have released newer and faster single-GPU graphics cards over the last few months, the biggest beast is still the AMD Radeon HD 5970, which packed a pair of Radeon HD 5870 GPUs onto a single piece of hardware. AMD is long rumored to be preparing the Radeon HD 6990 (code-named Antilles) as a sequel to the 5970, but Nvidia may have beaten it to the punch again.

Nvidia partner EVGA has been showing off a new card at CES, supposedly the GeForce GTX 595, that hosts a pair of GeForce GTX 500-series GPUs on one giant board. (Tech Report speculates that it may house two GeForce GTX 570s or 580s that are dialed down a bit from their single-card clock speeds.) It features three fans (apparently EVGA's own design) and a heatpipe for cooling, as there's no doubt this will throw off a huge amount of heat. There's also an SLI connector, so you can connect a couple versions of this card together both to slay Crysis and empty your bank account.

As usual at CES, EVGA would close neither pricing nor availability of this massive card, but our advice is to start saving.

[UPDATE: Fudzilla is reporting that the GTX 595 will use two GF110 cores, which is the chip behind the GTX 580.)
