All this "reviews" are weird; they say the card fail, that it cant outwin the 6990 and yet in their OWN reviews they trade blows.. I dont get it :S

this card obviously have flaws, same as the 6990 but they look bigger than what it is (except the card "exploited" what?? really?? :O )

Same as the launch of the fermi cards; i got 1 on launch day and the horror history didnt (still dont) match what every talked about those cards

ONLY the community reviews ( like OCN or extreme systems ) im going to trust from now on

2560x1600 isnt that important, 28 fps for Metro on 2560x1600 ? I dont think most buyers of these cards play games on that res, its still too high even for the power of these cards. You have to look at other res too, 1920x1200, 1920x1080 and even 1680x1050. People who plays game on 2560x1600/nvidia surround/eyefinity 3 probably own 580's or 6970's already. IMost people I know who would buy these cards play games on 1080p and 1920x1200. And 3% slower on 2560x1600 isnt a big difference anyway.

I think the 590 is a lot better because its quiet compared to the unbearable noise the 6990 produces.

I say: Well done AMD.
about the performance king title, dont forget the single gpu cards, and the 6990 isnt the king nor the winner.

Yes, there's some wins and losses. But it's the overall wins and losses that allows the reviewers to draw conclusions. The 590 and 6990 are both excellent cards with both pros and cons, ultimately it's up to the end-user whom is in the market for a dual-GPU card to choose which card to purchase based on the pros and cons.

Many probably would trade a bit of performance for the noise and power consumption of the 590 though.

I doubt MSI will do one like this though. Maybe a watercooled one but that's it.
Could be msi though... There was a rumor of a freakishly oc-ed version of 590 from msi.
I have to agree usually asus bring a better quality cards.

But when Nvidia has equal performance to an ATI at similar price, then nvidia card is better in my opinion because you have physx support, and you can enable GPU water simulation in Just Cause 2
You also get free fireworks. That's a win-win-win situation
I highly doubt overclocking will be covered under warranty with this perticular card considering they have been dying in reviews.

All of MSI's non-ref boards still have the power limiter (all the TF2/3 cards) where as all the ASUS DirectCU II cards for the 5 series don't so I think it's pretty easy to take a guess. And remember that tripple 8 pin ASUS card we saw a long time ago?.. Thats a hint. xD

I'd say the 590 is a complete success. It has similar performance to a 6990 while being smaller, quieter, more power efficient, and it costs the same price.

From what I've seen it's no were near being even close to the 6990

Then your reading skills need to be re-tuned.

Tom's, Guru etc all have it at SIMILAR rates, even slightly slower.

HOWEVER, it's significantly quiter and uses less power.

Half of the reviews have the 590 as a winner, half have the 6990 BUT, do mention the noise differences; it's entirely end user opinion.

All the reviews I have seen(Guru3d,Anand,TPU) showed 590 being a bit more power hungry.
