HD6990 4G vs GTX 590 3G for best performance in Lumion

Hi Team Lumion,

I am looking for a high end video game graphics cards which would give the best performance to running Lumion. Therefore, I have found these two just out of the market new goodies the ATI HD6990 4G and the Nvidia GTX 590 3G each using dual GPUs chip-set. The question is that would a single card with a dual GPUs give better performance boost over a single card with a single GPU like the GTX580 or HD6950 when operating in Lumion?

Also have you any idea or assumption about which card,  HD6990 4G or GTX 590 3G would perform the best in Lumion?

Apparently both cards are priced the same and here is quick review from PC perspective about these two top end new video cards:

Many thanks

It is hard to recommend which card to take since we didn't test both of them. It might be that internally this works as a SLI card. For some reason SLI is not really fast in Lumion which we will have to take a closer look at.

The processor speed of the 590 is lower then the 580 so with bad luck the 590 is slower then the 580. If you want to be sure you get a great card get a high memory 580.

Probably these cards are both really fast but before someone takes the chance and tries them out we won't know 100% sure which card is best.

Thanks Ferry. I guess it's still too early to give verdict about the performance of these two high-end video cards. I do think these cards are internally equipped as SLI and the total on board memory is splitting between two GPUs equally and these memory can not be added up for sharing between the GPUs. Do correct me if I am wrong about them.

ordered the GTX590, I will test it soon with Lumion, especially for 3dvision features.

We will do some more performance testing with SLI cards soon to see if we can do something extra to increase its speed.

Please make your test. I'm waiting in vain :-D
