6990 off the charts. - Page 4

post #31 of 63
I honestly don't see what amd were thinking when they released this.. The cooler dumps heat into your case and has caused random shutdowns in system reviews.. The performance is great, but if you have to worry about crashes while gaming, then it defeats the purpose.

To really enjoy this card you need to spend A LOT more than $700 and consider water cooling it.

Sorry. wrong info.

5970 is 12.16" I measured it myself.
i still have yet to receive my 6990s but every reviewer out there has said it is a hair shorter than the 5970.

Buy a $350 gpu and put the other $350 into something that in 5-10 years that will be worth something. Like Vintage video game merchandise or something lol
I Wont ever buy a Video card for more than $300

I think you might need glasses. Stock 580s in SLI clearly beat even an over clocked 6990 in 95% of benchmarks.

No. You are wearing the pink glasses. The price you paid for your 4X 580 3 GB cards is blinding you.

6990 is usually at 85-90% of 580 SLI. So it's not ''clearly''. Early drivers also. 90% of the speed for 300$ less.

Nvidia owners should remove their pink glasses. 6990+6970, for the same price, ''clearly'' beat 580 SLI. 2 cards againts 2 cards, 2 slots against 2 slots, same price.

And with mature drivers, I'm sure 2X 6990 will be able to take 4way 580 Quad SLI head-on, since we all know that Fermi scaling is crap compared to AMD 6xxx serie. I'm talking about the POS and overpriced vanilla 1.5GB version here, since Vega has the only 4 3Gb cards that were made for the entire planet...ok, I'm exagerating. They sold 10 or 15 of those in Europe... lol.

We are starting to see some impressive 2X 6990 scaling on some benchmarks on the net... It will ''clearly'' beat 580 Tri-SLI for 100$ less, and breathing on Quad-SLi 580 neck's....

Just looking at Vega Quad SLI cooling, it's totally uncooly crazy IMHO . Too much heat and power consumption to manage. 2X 6990 will be a lot easier to manage, and be at what, 5-10% under in performance? But cooling those 2 cards will cost alot less in waterblocks and cooling parts. And if you look at Vega's cooling solution, wow, so much trouble, headaches, time lost, and $ to keep all the heat and power in check for that Quad-SLi set-up!

There are no "early drivers". The 69xx series has been out for months and theres no difference in drivers as the 6990 is the same GPU just with an internal crossfire bridge instead of external. I guarantee you there isn't going to be any magic 6990 drivers that come out and suddenly boost performance 20%.

Your also forgetting that the 580 SLI setup for $300 more also is faster, quieter and runs cooler than a 6990. A water block is a virtual necessity for a 6990 if you don't want to go deaf, so thats another $150 in addition the 6990s $700+, closing the price gap.

You are right though that 1.5GB VRAM for the GTX580 is crap and the price should be lower. I've never cared for dual GPU/single card solutions. I had a bad experience running a 4GB 5970+2GB 5870 in tri-crossfire. Nothing but headaches.

Not to mention the huge issues I had with Quad Fire-6970s working properly at my resolution because of crossfire bridge limitations. I wouldn't be surprised if 2x 6990s have the same issue at super high resolutions on some systems.

In the end, just buying a motherboard to support as many graphics cards as you need is always the best option versus dual GPU/single cards. 2x 6970s is better than 1x 6990. 2x 580s is better than 2x 590. Also for the extreme user, if individual cards have their own water blocks, the cooling and over clock ability will be way higher versus dual GPU/single slot setups.

Actually the price is about the same around $700
umm the 580 sli is better, and so is the 570 sometimes.
