Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 11.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2021 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 263 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Far Cry 6 and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We proceeded to look at Grand Theft Auto VI to see how that compared and predict that it will return a weak 1 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Edition at 1440p and researched how Far Cry 6 might perform on it leading us to predict a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked out Grand Theft Auto VI which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 1FPS, M: 1FPS, H: 1FPS, U: 0FPS. And another popular game was FIFA 22 with predictions of L: 124FPS, M: 98FPS, H: 66FPS, U: 47FPS at 1440p. 1440p GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Edition PC gaming is not going to be able to keep stable frame rates at all times at Ultra 1440p on modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Edition in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card
