-Maximum performance depends on SLI profile? Same with any dual GPU ATi card, they're entirely dependant on the support for crossfire. That's always been a problem with ATi - or AMD - because they're so damn slow with it. Nvidia normally has better SLi support out of the gate, so they're not comparing apples to apples here.

-overclocking potential has yet to even be tested in all of the reviews I've read so far, so it's not exactly fair to even make those conclusions.

-limited relevance of DX11? What in the world?

Looking at the review on Hardocp specifically, they say that the card is a low performer. Ok that might be true in F1 and Civilization V but looking at Metro, Crysis, and BC2: it's totally on par with the 6990, sometimes even better. In Metro - it's about 3 FPS or so give or take off from the 6990. In Crysis it performs slightly better in the same fashion. BC2 is the same case. That's with STOCK clocks that's LOWER than the 6990. So can someone please explain the whole scenario on how these reviews are coming to the conclusion that the card isn't performing to expectations?

Also on Civilization V with HardOCP - their first test apples to apples: the card performs EXACTLY the same as the 6990 with 29 FPS. The 6990 has .2 FPS more. In the second test, it has like 3-4 FPS more with 32. How does that work out and they continue to claim the 6990 beats it?
3D Guru's review makes a LITTLE more sense when they claim the 6990 is better, but even then the differences in some of their benchmarks are still slight. Not enough difference for half the claims these reviews are making imo. I don't quite follow.

In BC2, the 590 smokes the 6990 on stock clocks too, again, which are signficantly lower than the 6990. Random pick as well - ME2 out of Aand also has the same results. Metro 2033 is slightly faster with the 590, on stock clocks again on 3D Guru's review. I'm quite curious why these reviews are not considering all these things and being so negative about the card.

OMG this card turned out much better than expected

Source

Refinement is always welcome but the bread and butter of any $700 graphics card is performance. In this respect, the GTX 590 puts up some great numbers but ultimately falls short of dethroning AMD’s HD6990 in convincing fashion. The two dual GPU cards trade blows from one game and resolution to the next which means the HD 6990 no longer boasts the title of “fastest graphics card in the world†but neither does the GTX 590. The end result between these two cards on the performance front is just too close to call.

For the price I'd take the GTX 590 any day

2560x1600 is the more important resolution to look at. 590 slightly loses at that resolution in BC2. I would look at TPU's review since they test much more games than Anandtech.

Nvidia FTW! But i need Kepler now. I can't stand dual gpu's and there drivers.

It's still too close, and they're not using the 6990's OC mode, which I guess matters.

Though, look at the difference - it slightly loses not OC'd. It's got a significant underclock on the card, so it only makes sense. I want to see it OC'd on that bench. If it wins in lower resolution with the same clocks, then there is no question to be had about the quality of performance from the card it's its about 150mhz lower in clock yet still trumping the 6990 in several.

I called it before the card came out: it's within the ballpark of the 6990, wins some but losses some as well. SLIGHTLY both positively and negatively both ways. With stock clocks. I don't like all the negativity is all because they aren't considering the whole picture in most of the reviews.

After talking to several other reviewers, this does not seem to be an isolated case, and many of them have killed their cards with similar testing, which is far from being an extreme test.
Rather worrying if true.

I thought the whole purpose of overclocking was buying something for less and making it run as fast as its more expensive counterparts. My single GTX 580 is more than enough for me and two would be overkill. AMD and Nvidia needs to trying to cater too two different markets(the upper mainstream and enthusiast) when they release a flagship card. Not a fan of Intel but I do respect when they release a flagship cpu they don't cut any corners(I.E. the Core i7 980x). Its either buy the best of the best or F*@k you and go with a cheaper setup. Need to start making cards that wow and stop p@$$y footing around with the best cause this is why people changes brands.

TPU says the 6990 is better. It scored a 7.0 while the 6990 scored 9.1

Anandtech says the 6990 is better for future games. Appears to read as a tie situation for current games.

Guru3D appears to read as a tie

Tech Report, 6990 wins

HardOPC, no award given to the 590. 6990 retains title.. They pointed out that the 6990 offers more memory and performance at similar price point to the 590.

Hardware Cancunks, 590 doesn't decisively beat the 6990
