|Why we are not going to review the GeForce GTX 590|
|Author: Gabriel Torres||Date: March 23, 2011 - 8:44 AM PST|
NVIDIA will be launching the GeForce GTX 590 tomorrow and they won't send us a sample for review. They asked us to contact their launch partners in North America, ASUS and EVGA. Both said they don't have samples available. It seems that NVIDIA, a company with a market capitalization of over USD 10 billion, doesn't want to spend money sending expensive video cards for reviewing and is passing this cost to their partners, which have a very limited number of samples for the same reason. At least AMD is helping us a lot lately...

"I read with interest your blog this afternoon. Your comprehension of embargo dates is clearly lacking."
Updated 03/24/2011, 11:47 AM PST: I've compiled a list of 22 websites that got the board. Probably there are more. Interesting enough some of them are smaller than Hardware Secrets (some don't have half of our traffic). We are definitely in some sort of "tier 2" list.
