News just came in from VR-Zone that a revision of the Geforce GTX 590 is most likely to arrive by June. Nvidia has found out a certain hardware failure on the card PCB’s due to which new inductors would be added. The new inductors are larger in size hence require a certain change in the base plate which means that the company may have to Re-Design the whole cooling phase  including the Vapor Chambers design.
