The 6990 will be king of the hill, sorry nvidia.
Who gives a crap what the stock clock is.
Everyone raise your hand if you run your cards at stock clocks.
Yeah didn't think so. If you can't handle a card that will draw north of 450w+ under load and overclocked then you don't belong on OVERCLOCK.net.
Not to mention the fact that overclocking any 6990 aside from the XFX one will void your warranty.

I don't think it could even put up better numbers in Heaven or 3d11 at that speed.
At least it won't overheat playing Metro 2033 with those clocks.
Seems to me that AMD was a little ambitious with their core speeds and didn't realize that video cards shouldn't be running routinely into the high 80s playing games on the stock core clock.Edited by blackbalt89 - 3/14/11 at 8:08pm
