[EN] NVIDIA's dual-GPU GeForce GTX 590 emerges, can't slay the Radeon HD 6990 titan - Page 20

Wow, after reading this thread the theme to Jaws comes to mind. In any case, when looking at the reviews you have to keep in mind which review used the stock clocks and which review used the Ausum switch.

This table is pretty nice. Don't think I've seen it posted yet by itself, and maybe some have missed it? xBit 6990-vs-590

Are premature drivers holding the GTX 590 back or something? I wonder. I dunno, was expecting more from it. That's hype for ya.

Have you looked at the Gurur3D SLI review. Single GTX 590 is faster than 2 590s 2-3 times

Read the notes in some reviews. It clearly says there are games with driver issues.

For only being clocked at 612Mhz or 607Mhz whatever it's, this card turned out to be faster than expected. We still need to see overclocks with voltage added though to judge the true performance of this card.

That's likely the best comparison I've seen, across a broad spectrum of games.

Almost all of the 6990 comparison that tought the strength of the card do so at the extreme resolutions and multiple monitors that truly represent a miniscule fraction of any playerbase.

That said Both cards are great. That the 590 gets the scores that it does, on early drivers, base clock 607mhz, and Air, greatly influenced my decision to buy the 590...

I've never seen a card/cpu we could not accellerate here on OCN.

And yes I'll let some other poor sap advise what the voltage ceiling is no different that Intel memory voltage etc...

I really think the AnandTech got it right. Its really a matter of what games you play and which games you will be playing.

Im thinking that 6950 CF is my next setup. Still trying to decide on a successor to my X2

probably. but the HD6990 uses 450W. the GTX590 uses 365W.
the GTX590 is shorter and Quieter. GTX590 has 3D surround support with just one card

GTX590 can be overclocked like a beast. i want to see one of these bad boys cooled on water!

but if you overclock the HD6990, it will be drawing 450W+ which will blow all the electrics in your district of a 25mile radius.

Why so 65nm, Nvidia?
