The pcb was made along time ago.
The components are cheaper.
Less power phase with higher binned card can almost give same oc results.
The 5xx series is pin compatible with 4x series so no ground breaking pcb.
I say its almost equal to 570 sli in price and perform about the same.
Still noone, sane at least, buy this or 6990 for 1920x1200/80 res. Its either 2560x1600 or surround or 3d. In 3d this card will perform amazingly well. surround...well 1.5g isnt enough. Even if the card is a fully fledged 580s...still 1.5g of vram.
My thoughts: 6990 is gamer fps king, while 590 shines in benchmarks under LN2...

And of course we all know that the clock is everything... weirdsmiley.gif

580 has a clock of 772 and memory at 4008, while the 6970 is clocked at 880 and memory at 5500. The 580 has 1.5GB (not special editions) and the 6970 has 2GB.
Do you want to guess which is is better on its own?
Hind: The toad.


So please, don't be silly.

Also, you can see in many review the 6990 falls short to a single 580 in some games, let alone a SLI 580. Or even below the 5970 in some.
I'm just saying!

Not different then only Palit and Gainward (and maybe eVGA soon) doing 3Gb 580. So you have to choose a manufacturer with Nvidia cards since some are better then others and offering enough VRAM, instead of the other manufacturers offering the POS 1.5Gb vanilla version. Same thing with AMD and the 6990. Choose the better manufacturers.

Read the post completely before answering. I said I'm waiting for my 6990 waterblock before going higher. It was just for fun, with stock cooler on. I got the card last friday. I'm already at 1000/1400 with my 6990 and 6970, while some 6970 don't even go that high. Yes, that's true. Read around. Some 6970 are not able to reach 1000. Luck of the draw. But 6990 are hand-pick low leaking chips, so they can go higher than alot of 6970 on the market.

Not impressive. LOL. I installed the card 3 days ago. Just wait and see for results with a waterblock. And since there is not a single waterblock for the 6990 around yet, what you're saying is an assumption, and not a fact. You don't have clue if the 6970 OC higher then the 6990. An opinion, not a fact. Wait for the waterblocks before posting your opinion like it's a fact. You put ''6970 OC higher'' in bold, but you don't know that, since we just got the cards, and don't have any waterblocks for it.

People using a 6990 or 590 with stock cooler should be beaten with sticks for their stupidity. smile.gif

Again, I'm not alone. There is also other end-users with 6990 saying the same thing about the noise of the card on another site. Read around. Even Guru3d said some noise-level measurements on other ''established'' review sites sounded fishy and were not done properly. Go read it.

Believe me, I have one. I'm not a reviewer with an agenda. The 6990 is ok. Not worst then the jet-engine on the 5970 and not worst then the 2 jet -engines on 2 580 in SLI.

So please, don't be silly.

well you're comparing single gpu card with proper power requiremnets filled........the 6990 can get very close to 6970 clocks and power requirements are within spec......do you think a GTX590 will accomplish that?.....i somehow doubt that.......some tests have shown that a single 580 consumes about 120watts less than Crossfired 6970s

I'm not saying it will.
And power consumption means absolutely nothing at all in concerning which card will perform better. Especially with these cards which aim for extreme users.
All I'm saying, is that the poster above me stated something... well... silly. You are welcome to currect me if I'm wrong in that regard. Thats it.

It might be that the 590 will be a complete flop. Doesn't matter, and doesn't change the fact that comparing clock speed, is irrelevent, and foolish.
It might also be stronger and consume less power.

Until its out, you don't know do you?

So comparing clock to clock, is like saying a chicken is cooler than a bunny because it lay eggs and can poke your eyes out when angry.
But you never know if that bunny is possesed, until it jumps and cut your throat with its demonic teeth, do you?

As a previous owner of the 5970 and 580s in stock coolers, the 580 where very quiet for me. Same with the 5970. That is with full fans speed.

The 470s on the other hand... eek.gif

But mainly, its about the case. If you have a good case, even a couple of jet-engines will bring out very low noise outside the case.

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.

Of course XFX will still let you RMA the card. They will jizz on it and then send it back to you, while saying you couldn't contain yourself. Also with that amount of heat production and power consumption expect this to happen soon.
