That's why HardOCP is great, they review the resolutions all the other sites don't. I don't care how well a GTX 590/AMD 5990 performs at 1680x1050, because if you have $800-1000 to spend on a videocard, you certainly have more than $100 to spend on a decent monitor setup.

I will say this again and again until people understand it: these cards are not a waste @ 1080/1200p because even they cannot produce a minimum of 60fps in all the games out now, not even talking about the games coming out in the future.

If you think it's a waste, it's your own opinion.

And yes I'm getting a 590 if I can get my hands on one. And I play @ 1920x1200. And that did not cost 100$...

I do actually have to agree w/this...Not trying to be the voice of reason but, for most people this will be a very reliable single card solution...

geez the mark up on that gigabyte card cause of the tackle box presentation will probably bring it up an extra 50 bucks. :smh: thank God for asus and evga only in the states.

I was using a 1680x1050 monitor as the lowend of what is reviewed, a 1680x1050 monitor can be found for about $100 on Newegg. Why would any reviewer pair a $100 monitor setup with an $800 dual-GPU card for testing? It's silly. Yet they do it all the time:

http://www.overclockersclub.com/revi...pphire_hd6990/
http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/394...iew/index.html

What is the point of even including that resolution? Why not have the triple monitor setup benchmarks?

Also, I heard the human eye can distinguish between 50 FPS and 70 FPS in a videogame. Because that will be the difference you will see while gaming once you upgrade to a 590 from a pair of 5870s. Or, rather, not see.

These slides from NVIDIA are such utter BS. It's impossible for this card to be faster than HD 6990 at stock clocks because of its clock speeds--that is, unless they're getting 100% scaling, which is borderline on impossible. A GTX 580 SLI at the clock speeds the GTX 590 is set at is noticeably slower than a Radeon HD 6990. The amount of VRAM on it is gonna affect its speed at resolutions 2560x1600 and higher, too. Due to this, I'm gonna wait for the reviews.

Well, it's useless for your resolution and as a single source. People are better off looking at all the reviews and discarding the outliers to make a final decision on a card.

It's obvious that HardOCP would be a good choice to include in your dataset when considering higher resolutions. And when it comes to high end multi-GPU cards you have to consider that a majority of people would be using them with higher resolution/multiple monitor setups.

( i7 920 4.5Ghz HT On, i guess the problem won't be on the CPU ... )
Good question. Also good luck getting a non fan boi answer

In my experience sli is smoother but i put this down to drivers thats all

According to this, the 6990 is faster! WOWZERS

I see the dual gpu solutions, not solo on their ability to run multiple screens but with something that you guys tend to forget... life span.

Now, yes, it can be a waste of resources, but if people plan to buy a single card that can give them performance for years to come ( usually dual gpu cards have a lifespan of 2 years in my hands ) ... it's a good investment...

So, users who have, for example a 1920x1200 screen... won't see huge performance gains with games to come ... but they will not see lack of performance either... and that's a point that everyone forgets ...

How long will you be able to keep your 700-800USD investment running. And for dual gpu my guess is that it will be a long time before you start lacking real performance...
