Wrong and wrong. On both count. Copy and pasting internet FUD. Do you have a 6990?
XFX and Sapphire 6990 warranty is fine if you use the BIOS switch on the 6990. Confirmed by both manufacturers. Please post real facts, not FUD to scare people. Buy XFX or Sapphire if you want a 6990. Full warranty on both. The ''warranty'' thing is green-spread FUD. But the facts are facts. XFX and Sapphire both honor the warranty fully, even if you use the switch.
I have a 6990 and 6970 at home, and I can get the same OC with both. I have both running at 1000/1400 for now, since I have the stock cooler on my 6990. So you are wrong again.
And to correct another internet FUD spread by the green fanboys putting oil on the fire: it's not hoter or noisier then a 5970 or a 580 SLI set-up. I know, I had both (and still have the 5970). The 6990 is NOT NOISIER and NOT HOTER then a 5970 or a 580 SLi set-up, IN A GOOD CASE WITH GOOD VENTILATION.
Waiting for my 6990 waterblock to go higher.
So please. You were trying to spread FUD again. Please verify your facts next time before posting. Or get the cards and check by yourself instead of copy and pasting what you read somewhere else.Edited by Levesque - 3/16/11 at 4:55am
