Graphics-card aficionados may be fervently waiting for the release of NVIDIA's dual-GPU GeForce GTX 590. This is the brute tasked with dethroning arch-rival AMD's Radeon HD 6990 and thus taking the title of world's fastest graphics card.
The release of this NVIDIA monster - which, according to speculation, is composed of two second-generation, 512-core Fermi GPUs operating in tandem via on-card SLI - is supposed to be today. NVIDIA has a history of launching products on a Tuesday, and the release would fit right into the timescale that we've been hearing from partners.
Aficionados, you can relax and stow away that pent-up excitement for another day. You see, NVIDIA isn't launching the GTX 590 today. Rather, it's releasing a teaser video, presented by NVIDIA evangelist Tom Petersen, who talks around the company's next-generation graphics card.
Bizarrely, we're not allowed to talk about which card this is, though we credit our readers with enough intelligence to work out what it is. Feeling a bit woozy? Fancy a clue? Read the first two paragraphs.
What's more, the video tells you when to expect this miracle of engineering. Point your browsers in our direction at 1pm on Thursday, people!
