Show me a case in the past that proves otherwise.
Show me the specs alone that prove otherwise.
It's simple, they can't squeeze two 580 cores running at 580 speeds on to a single card without running in to a large heat and power issue. Instead, they use lower clocked versions. This isn't a new concept and if you are expecting the 590 to be faster than 2 580's then you're in for a shock.

Have you never heard people asking questions to other people in the effort to provoke conversation? What a bizarre world you must live in.
You come across as very bitter to feel the need to try and argue over something so simple.
What makes you think I'm upset? I'm merely pointing out the obvious. You act like overkill is a concept that's completely unheard of on this forum.
Take your own advice and untangle your panties, there's no need to take offense over a forum reply.
