If.

The 7950GX2, 9800GX2, and GTX295 never received non-reference PCBs. Some AIBs released cards that came with waterblocks, but the PCB remained unchanged.

The GTX295 received an official PCB change from dual-PCB to single PCB, but that was for the cost savings. Software voltage control was removed for it.

Closer than i thought between the 590 and the 6990 (I expected the 590 to walk it).

There's the comparison for you with links.

Well, i've been testing a Asus 590 ... and this ... well ... i really don't know if i'm to get this card ... at least from a overclocker point of view ...

You know, and i know, that sooner than later you want to clock your card...
So... this damn card its working at 850Mhz core ... stable ... benching ... wow! BUT ... big BUT ... you just .... can't get more out of it ...

The vantage results that i had with the clocks at 670 ... are exactly the same i'm having at 850!!! Isn't that fun ... oh w8 ... now i remember something about drivers ... throttle down of the gpu freq ...

So... this is a big "MEH" to Nvidia ...

So 3 stocks voltage cards dying(one by hardware.fr and two reported by lab501.ro), sweoverclockers 1.025V 772Mhz card dying, TechPowerUp momentary 1.2V test dyed, and any others?

I would personally take 6-7C more on the gpus for 25-30C less on the vrms. Seems like a better trade off.

Edit: Remember to when looking at the pictures they had to use a different scale for the 590 since it was not in range or something during tests due to higher heat.

I would too since the GPUs can handle up to 104C but the VRMs certainly can't. The ATI VRMs are in the mid to high 70s. Can't wait to hear the horror stories in 6 months when more stock 590s start dying out because VRMs are subjected to 111C.

Well by analyzing the components on the retail 590, the VRMs are rated for extended use at 175ºC, capacitors are rated at 105ºC and the 12 layer PCB with a copper core and chokes can handle 125ºC ... so it seems ok ... the only problem i can see there is, indeed the 5 x 2 phase design that can't handle the higher core voltage when overclocked...

We are seeing this in the video game sector as well. Not enough testing before releasing to the public.
