Nvidia Corp. plans to release a new version of its dual-chip flagship GeForce GTX graphics card that will be more overclockable. The company intends to re-invent print-circuit board of the graphics card in a bid to improve its reliability in cases of overclocking, a media report claims.

The new GeForce GTX 590 graphics card - which is powered by two code-named GF110 graphics processing units (GPUs) and features 3GB of GDDR5 memory - will have new inductors, larger printed circuit board (PCB) and a new cooling solutions, reports VR-Zone web-site. The new inductors and design will eliminate possibility of failure during overclocking, which is something that enthusiasts demand from a top-of-the-range graphics cards.

The revised GeForce GTX 590 graphics cards will feature 699-11020-005-502 marking on the PCB. The current version has 699-11020-005-500 marking.

At present the GeForce GTX 590 graphics card is not available in many online stores, which means that a limited amount of cards has been released. With new PCB, which is expected to be more reliable than the previous one, new Fermi-series flagship graphics cards are likely to have better overclocking potential. The enhanced reliability and overclockability will help the model 590 to better compete against AMD's Radeon HD 6990 dual-chip top-of-the-line solution.

The new versions of the flagship are expected to become available in June.

Nvidia did not comment on the news-story.

New inductors, may not be enough. They need more and beefier VRMs per GPU, that is where where the problem was when overclocking.

And while they're at it, why not making a 3slot ref design also?

If they want to improve OCing, then they gotta improve cooling first.

Cheers!

Just concentrate all your efforts on my future 680GTX with die shrink please, I want it perfect 1st round, QUIET and decent stock cooler, Happy to pay an extra $50 if it adds to production cost, 2-3x performance increase would be pro as well!
590GTX is good enough to last until next gen.
