To be fair, the top of the line should be awesome at the best settings, but without tesellation I'm guessing that the 6990s would see a fair performance increase. Not sure why in the 2nd video they're usin 1x AA also. Seems a little unfair for a 4GB VRAM card to only have to hit up 1x AA.

Cool vids though, a shame there's nothing out there that can really make use of these cards.

Plus it's quadfire which is known to be less than ideal. It's looks real suspicious to me.

LOL. Don't be naive. 3X 6970 would beat 3X 580 vanialla 1.5GB at high-res with 4AA/8AA.

It was a fanboy video made to get more freebies from Nvidia, with every settings/config clearly favoring the Nvidia set-up. 1XAA? That's to compensate for the lack of VRAM on those POS vanilla 580. Nasty sneaky little tricks.

Just like 3X 6970 will rape the 2X 590 next week, since the 590 will be severely memory limited with only 1.5GB. I'm sure they won't do a video of 3X 6970 against 2X 590 with 4X/8XAA. No. No more freebies if they do. You'll see.

A video of a 6990+6970 set-up would also clearly beat 580 SLi for 1000$ both.

3X 6970 against 3X 580. Even my old mother knows that Quad-Fire on 2 cards, and soon Quad-SLi on 2 cards, would loose to3X 6970 or 3X 580.
