How well can the GeForce GTX 590 SLI run games
17 May 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

Gamers upgrading will be considering the GeForce GTX 590 SLI graphics card as a serious price to performance entry point. This card will meet and play most demanding AAA games and do so with good graphics setting as standard, and confidently pushing past the recommended game system requirements needed to run today’s games. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 590 SLI where we look at the bigger games played in 2021. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 315 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

The GeForce GTX 590 SLI graphics card is returning a reasonable performance on Days Gone at 1080p of 47 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Biomutant which we predict will get playable frame rates of 33 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Battlefield 6, which is predicted to get 37 FPS under tests.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce GTX 590 SLI performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Days Gone and saw it deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 94 FPS, Medium: 74 FPS, High: 50 FPS and Ultra: 35 FPS. We then checked the performance on Biomutant to predict if that will run well. It is predicted to be playable with a 25 FPS at Ultra 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 590 SLI, this is ok at playing most games but might need to have the graphics settings lowered to medium preset in some cases.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 590 SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 590 SLI 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 SLI? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB, which has 33% better performance and can run 780 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB which is 42% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 904 games from the most demanding games today.
