Are you suggesting Nvidia doesn't do the same?

Because you can't over the 590 either, right? What a pro...

VR-Zone learned that the launch of the GeForce GTX 590 is being pushed back 2 days to March 24th. It is supposed to launch together with Crysis 2, a "The Way Is Meant To Be Played" game which is still on target for March 22nd release. One possible reason is that NVIDIA is trying to get a SLI profile working for Crysis 2. Also, we have yet to hear a DX11 support for Crysis 2 either so it won't do justice to GeForce GTX 590 if that option isn't available at all. Press driver is now at version 267.71 and this card overclocks really well at this moment.

Unfortunately it's true guys. I wasn't allowed to quote the email I received this time because it included some NDA related information as well but I am allowed to say that my internal source has confirmed this. I am also allowed to state that this card is actually expected to be an excellent overclocker.

Overclocks well, that sounds good. Cause I have yet to find a review where the 6990 overclocked very well.

post #428 of 1505
dah i bet this means the crysis 2 patch will be delayed two days as well due to the card's new release date.

Erm.

http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/g...d6990_review/4

They got it to 965MHz, compared to 830MHz, and said that 1GHz will be capable on 3rd party cooler versions. I don't see how that isn't good.

It isn't like AMD crippled the core on the dual gpu first and allowed you to bring it back to where it should be (as in the 590).

By any chance are you allowed to say it's a bad overclocker?
Hypothetically speaking.
