Going traditional single GPU/card crossfire/SLI is always a better route to take versus two GPUs stuck on one card. If you can afford these high end cards, you should be able to afford a MB with the proper slots for crossfire/SLI.

It will be interesting to see people run these dual GPU cards choking on 8x PCI-E lanes with P67.

I've never seen a GTX 480 shut off because it was overheating. I doubt the 6990 will have a long life, a waste of the $700 if you ask me (the same will apply to the GTX 590).

6950s in CF won't have those problems. I think it's a no brainer.
This card seems riddled with problems when you say it like that.. If it couldn't even finish a loop of Heaven, who knows how all these benchmarks were done. Need to see how many are over heating. The few reviews I read didn't seem to bring anything up like that.

AMD wouldn't release a completely borked product. Time will tell if OCNers have overheating cards or not. Here I thought they were doing decently well.

It just shows how close these cards are to their limits. IMO AMD and nVidia shouldn't have bothered releasing dual GPUs this time. I mean dual GTX 580s or HD6970s don't belong on a single PCB, it's not practical without WC. Also the overheating/shutdown occurred when using the stock fan profile (not manual).

Also what's the point of getting a 12" card if you get 2x 10.5"/11" cards that won't overheat and OC really well for less money?

That's probably why we never saw a GTX 495. That's ridiculous, the stock fan profiles over heating? Why even release it then.

Maybe they should of skipped the 6990 this gen if it is problematic in terms of efficiency/heat. I don't even want to think about the GTX 590...

I think that happened on the 5970. I agree though, there is no point with these dual GPU cards now that single GPU cards are quite fast. I guess its more of an engineering thing, like "Yea, we can make this".

If it was "Yeah, we can make this", they should take less-powerful models and double them up, like two 5770's or two 6850's. Yes it wouldn't be worth it money-wise, but neither is cramming two crazy hot cores on one PCB and selling it for the cost of most people's entire systems. When most motherboards are released with at least two 8x PCI lanes, it's really not worth it to get these cards when two cheaper, better cooled and redundant cards perform comparatively/better.

How would you be able to claim the title of world's fastest graphics cardw ith 2 5770 or 6850 cores? :/

Relax... The way it sounded from the reviews is that people were leaving benchmarks open for hours and THEN it was overheating.

It's not really fair to benchmark and then complain about overheating on "autofan." If anything these people should tune their autofan and/or manual setting.

Hell even my 6950s would heat up if i left a benchmark running on auto fan.

Because fastest isn't always better I know AMD and NVIDIA are fighting to be the fastest, but creating cards this expensive is sort of counter-productive if you ask me. Like an e-peen contest to see how fast a single card can perform...soon they'll start shoving three cores on a single PCB lol.
