I'm honestly not trying to be rude, though it may come off that way. Your posts are almost always completely unreadable. A little better spelling and punctuation would go a long way. It would also help in making people take your posts seriously. Is English your first or even second language? Honest question. Some of your posts and opinions are pretty well thought out and level headed, but the formatting and overall butchering of the English language removes any credibility you could be getting if they were written a little better.

Yeah, it did. VRMs were inadequate for overclocking so Nvidia released a driver that heavily restricted voltage adjustment. Bad for watercoolers. That is why an overclocked 6990 will usually beat an overclocked 590 in the majority of games.

IVY has been pushed back until second half of 2013. Your going to have enough time now.

I agree with AMD being the fastest dual GPU last year and Nvidia fastest single GPU of last year.

The GTX 590 initially came out with poor VRM's. This caused higher volted cards that were exceeding GPU specs to fail. There were several quiet revisions of this card after some time where they swapped VRM's. Nvidia never publicly admitted to it but it was evident with the newer revisions of the reference card when it happened something had changed.

Previous water blocks that fit, would no longer fit because of the swapped VRAM to fix the issue. This was proved because there is 2 different versions of water blocks out Pre-revision and Post-revision. They also improved their drivers for it along the way as well.

In the end you don't hear of that going on any longer and not for quite some time. Eventually the GTX 590 competed rather on par with the AMD 6990 but at that point was too late IMO. Win goes to AMD for getting it right out of the gate.

As for the news of the 7990 - that's great. Kudos to AMD who released a complete line since January. Even though they were a month late from December's supposed time line they were still first out of the gate and has had two and a half months of unrivaled sales. If the race horse gets out of the gate first and has crossed the finish line before the second horse gets out, even if the second horse is faster, the first horse still won.

Whether anyone thinks it's possible that the GTX 690 will be a bit faster, quieter, less power consumption running cooler, and less expensive to produce, is a moot point at this time without proof.

ATi is AMD. And of course AMD gives themselves all possible resources.

I think he was talking about mainstream Ivy Bride, which is on time for April.

since GTX680 benchmarks leaked out and results seems quite good....then why not GTX690 be the DUAL-GPU king?...and also kepler is efficient both in power and temps

Too bad they won't make there original deadline of Q1 with this card (7990). But as others have stated drivers have continued to be the downfall of Amd's new gpu's. I'd like to stick to a single (dual-gpu) card rather then having to buy two cards then sell them every year to upgrade. It looks like I'm going to have to give the 7990 a shot. I'm tired of having my brand new 3k dollar x79 rig just sit without a gpu.

Dual GPU cards are nice, the major downpart is that they don't come out with non-reference cooling like MSI's TF or lightning cooling, or Asus DCII, sapphires dual fan, etc so unless someone is water-cooling those monsters, expect huge noise levels as seen on the 6990 and still the card running in the hot side,

I plan on just buying the biggest and best dual-gpu card as they come out. Probably do the 7990 now and maybe the 690 later this year. My case is very well cooled (Azza Hurricane 2000) as well as having fans on the X79 Sabertooth motherboard. Cooling it at a mild overclock shouldn't be too much of an issue. Noise level will be a non factor as well since I wear headphones.

This^^ ..!

 

Let us not forget, that AMD said after it's mobile announcement, that they still expect 8000 series GPU in 3Q. Although those will be mainstream in time for xmass, but that does put somewhat of a squeeze on nVidia.

 

I was hoping to see team green pull ahead, we'll see how the price war goes!
