Definetly lazy review using old benches while only testing the one card with newer.

I'd be leary from any review from Overclock3D whether it's Nvidia or AMD on top, if this is the way they do benchmarrks.

Trubritars reviews were two months old and much closer in specs using stock clocks with 267.91 vs 11.4 drivers. Plus each of the six benches were the averages of it being run 20 times. I really like his side by side comparisons on video.

It would be nice to see him do a surround benchmark test as well.

No worries, the OP didn't start this thread on a good note anyway with his suttle remark at the end. It deserved any repsonse really.

Getting hung up on this single 1200p trial on one of the few games that the Radeon actually wins across multi-monitors, I don't get it.
If it ain't accurate, well then it's semi accurate.
Therefore not news and should be ignored, and not pushed as fact.

You can appreciate that, correct?

ALL comparisons should be done with the same drivers, sometimes common sense ain't so common.
It's a 6990 vs. 590 review, and both of those were done within the last week on their most recent drivers. As others have said, any other hardware was added using old data as a reference point (and only in Crysis 2/Metro, the rest is strictly 6990 vs 590 as the review title suggests).

If you don't like the reference points on those two games, feel free to ignore them and focus on the 590/6990 numbers.

If you want to get technical...

Technically it's a 590 SLI review, and 6990 CF is missing.

A quote from the OP...

Quote:
So if you plan on multiple-screen gaming, are you better off with the twin-GPU HD6990 or the nVidia equivalent Zotac GTX590?

In some degrees it depends upon which game you want to play as some perform better than others in certain circumstances. However looking at the results in an overall manner we'd definitely suggest plumping for the Zotac GTX590.
How can he make conclusions if there are no 6990 CF numbers to compare to?

Also, the reference numbers of 580 SLI vs a 590 clearly don't add up, due to 8 month old drivers in 580 SLI, so why bother using them? If he's going to reference 580 SLI as a comparison, they should be with the same drivers.

As people here pointed out, how can a 590 be more than twice as fast as 580 SLI when it's heavily down clocked? It doesn't make sense, and now we know why.

THIS.

Furthermore, you would think that rather than blindly accepting the "fact" that new drivers caused a jump from 66FPS to 117FPS on a single 590 he would investigate and be 110% percent sure that his results were correct before posting them.

He seemly does none of that -- but has no problem commenting in the conclusion that these new drivers deserve "special mention" for their awesomeness and determines that 590SLI is better than the 6990CFX config he never tested.
