You said 580 in your post above, when you meant the 480, as that was the card that took the title from the 5870, not the 580

Besides, isn't the 2 gpu's on one board getting old already, when will I see 3 or 4 gpu's on one pcb?
No, you should compare them now. The MARS II will be a custom Asus construction, and is going to be FAR more expensive than a 6990.
The proper apples-to-apples comparison is the 590 vs the 6990, the top of the line reference cards from each brand.Edited by brettjv - 6/6/11 at 1:03am
