???Lumion intends to support the use of the GTX 590 using the full potential?
I'm in the final stretch to choose between GTX 580-590-3Gb.

If you will use lumion with complex scene choose the 580 with 3go....
Some post explain why .... (the 590 will use only 1.5go for you scene and lumion is not guilty for this, it is a matter of hardware and all bi-gpu split the memory in two ...half for each gpu)

Have a nice day....

You buy a second 580 lol ....

Even if lumion is able to use the power of the 950 it will not multiply the ram...

GTX 590 will be maybe faster but not for too big project with Hi texture ...
GTX 580 will run "slower" but you are sure to open and render all project even huge scene...

We have to know what is the amount of video memory needed for a type of project (Number of polygon, quality of texture ...)

Did someone had problem of video memory with a 1.5go video card ?

It's an hard choice to do ....

Currently I use a GTX465 with 1GB. When I use in large scenes, I have memory problems, sometimes I have to use the Lumion in low memory mode. In this way the textures of the surrounding land loses too much quality.

The GTX590 won't be that much faster then a GTX580-3GB in Lumion so the choice isn't that difficult:
If you fancy lots of ram and tons of drivercrashes: Go for a GTX580-3GB.
Kidding about the drivercrashes ofcourse. Not that bad. Well actually they are, but you can keep on
working in Lumion.

In Brazil, the cost is very close to one another:
GTX 580 3G- R$ 2.222,00 = U.S. $ 1,388.00
GTX 590 3G- R$ 2.314,00 = U.S. $ 1,446.00

In that case ( if you sometimes use low memory mode ) i am agree with Aaron,buy the 580 .....but not in brazil LOL

Hello Gilles Gassa
Unfortunately, our taxes are too high.
As Aaron has already warned me, I am more likely to buy the GTX-580-3G.
As costs are very high here we have to think too much.
