Updated

Please post links in the future as it makes it makes it easier to find/add it to the OP.

PS: Hardware.fr review http://www.hardware.fr/articles/825-...e-gtx-590.html They got thermal campera shots.
They could of made it longer like the 6990. Sacrificing VRMs for space doesn't seem worth it for a $700 card.

I think this card will really shine once non-reference PCBs come out that address the VRM and power issues that currently hinder this card from achieving higher clocks. I could be wrong, though.
Ummm....

Know of any reviews which feature thermal pictures of the 6990? I'd like to compare those.

Isnt the 570 having issues blowing vrms also? If nvidia is going to be having major problems like this, its not going to matter if non-reference versions fix these critical problems. People are going to be sceptical about purchasing hardware that may fail. I hope this isnt the issue because we need nvidia to be very competitive to drive prices down.

I agree.....they released a pair of cards with sub-par voltage regulation (at least as far as overclocking is concerned). If they really want to address this issue and make an impact, they should release a revision themselves. Despite admittedly being an AMD fanboy, I really do hope that Nvidia stays competitive such that prices go down. Price wars are good for all consumers, red or green.
Ummm....

Sure, they could have. But after 2 years of designing this card, you'd expect they know what they are doing, right?

Also, consider this: If they made it clock better, they would have to raise the price accordingly. Otherwise it might eat up some 580 sales. Or lower 580 price. Not optimal. And it would still come a little short of a 6990 at stock clocks, so would be a hard sell at higher price. So now you have the 590 performing almost like 570SLI and costing similar. Unfortunately having the same OC problems too. They have pushed themselves into this situation with Fermi power consumption. Add the canceled 32nm node and here you are. It's still probably the best way they could do...

Sure, hardware.fr does it most of the cards they test. Here's the 6990: http://www.hardware.fr/articles/747-...thermique.html You can switch around the pages in that article for other cards.

Well, if manufacturers can release non-reference PCBs with extra VRMs that fix this problem, certainly Nvidia themselves can do this. Their 560 and 580s don't have this problem. ATI's reference cards don't seem to suffer from poor VRM design either.
