How well can the GeForce GTX 590 Zotac Edition run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 Zotac Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 590 Zotac 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.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 590 Zotac Edition. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2021. This graphics hardware can run 256 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 590 Zotac Edition can run Days Gone at 1080p and saw it return playable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 67 FPS, Medium: 53 FPS, High: 36 FPS and Ultra: 26 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Battlefield 2042 is predicted to return a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Days Gone to see how the GeForce GTX 590 Zotac Edition 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 Battlefield 2042 which we predict will be weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at FIFA 22 that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 45. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 590 Zotac Edition is going to need to lower its graphics settings to medium on modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 590 Zotac Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 590 Zotac Edition in your PC? This GeForce GTX 590 Zotac Edition card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 590 Zotac Edition? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 48% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 633 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 590 Zotac Edition would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300 which meets 312 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 22% better performance.
