Less than two separate cards in xfire though.

Reasons I am interested in this card (as well as the GTX 590), my GTX 480 SLI is great but if I can get similar performance from a single card I'd rather go with the single card and free up some space.

there are a lot of people out there, including me, who would love to support AMD/ATI but are waiting till they clean up their driver issues. with that said, this card looks awesome. i am on a GTX 460 but would gladly switch over to AMD as they seem every bit superior to Nvidia as a whole (especially multiple monitor display)... except driver problems being the exception.

I would give both hands and both legs just to lay on the ground with that fancy briefcase!

This is always used as an excess by nvidia fanbois, but what those same fanbois forget is that even with their supoosedly bad drivers, they still perform better then nvidia cards at the end of the day

I'm interested in the 6990, but I think I'll wait for the 7000 series tbh.

Then the second GPU (x) would be given hot air from off of the first GPU, making the cooling of it less efficient.

Having it in the center ensures fresh air to both GPUs for better cooling.
unless the fans will be bladed..if they will be using the reference evercool's well the 1st gpu(one near the ports) will be the one getting cooled effectively..

When I had my HD3870 I had zero problems, I then sold my rig and bought a motherboard with HD4290 and used it with zero problems and now that I have my GTX 460 my drivers keep crashing like a few times a week.

Yeah, cause the 6970 totally outperforms the 580, right? And on down the line? ..Not hardly.

And that's not even taking into account AMD's inferior image quality.
