Is AMD doing anything sneaky like NV, such as limiting the fan speed to 85% out of the box?
Why do you think they do that?

I know why, > 85% is very loud.
Not as loud as the 4xx series was, ( I have my fan unlocked ).. And tbh , stock settings or overclocked, I wouldn't need more than 85% fan anyways.
When I did my 1 ghz runs, It was with the fan at 85%, Anything past that it would crash, I suspect because the fan was robbing the card of that smidge of extra power needed for stability.

The GTX 580 is a power hungry beast, and this uses two of its dies. Not only will it consume more power than the 6990, but it will be just as bad Ocing. AMD has won the performance crown when it comes to the fastest board again, though a Radeon HD 6950 is a much better value proposition than the 6990.
Lol seriously? They don't limit it because of thermal limits, it's limited due to PCI-e specs. If a card is to be certified, it has to stay within limits (375w). You can push it more after you buy it, but it has to be sold within limits

the limit is 300w, not 375. I forgot who did an article on the PCIe, but it basically said that it doesn't matter what specs you have the card at. PCIe specs are for oem products and really not for enthusiast products.

the 5970 wasn't certified, the 6990 isn't certified, and the 590 won't be certified either.

No, it does not. The 6990 isn't within PCI-e specs, even at stock clocks.

Wow, both camps are in full assault mode and this thing has yet to be released. Pre-launch shenanigans and smack-talking (both sides)

It's to be expected when no one knows what this beast will do at it's limits.

Please guys let's keep it friendly and respect everyone's opinions. Remember, nothing is 100% until is confirmed by multiple different sources.

Agreed.
Im still debating whether I want this or the 6990. Either way, I will be getting one or the other. Im just waiting on price of the GTX590 to decide because regardless of apecs you know it will be a good card.

Ok so the clock is lower. ATi underclocked the 6990 to keep it within PCie spec. Same situation could be here. For all anyone knows it can overclock way higher. Calm your horses people and wait. It could scale better as well, not to mention price. If the card happens to be a bit slower - $100 off the price tag would close that gap immensly.

Just wait for release people before going at each other's necks. Even then, there isnt a reason to be making such a big deal out of what could easily be overly exaggerated or completely wrong assumptions which i can garuntee is the case.
