And look at how much more power a SLOWER GTX 590 needs over a 6990..

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/A...TX_590/21.html

So much for your claim GTX 590 is more power efficient.. Fan boy only see's what he wants to see
Here you go...

The general consesus (if you read them all) is the 590 is 10-20db quieter. There are certain situation that pushed the 20db, sure; I can think of some setups that do that but, it doesn't change the reality that if you matched db for db, the 6990 would fry.

As someone in an office with 5 580s, 12 480s, 4 6990s and soon to be 10+ 590's...I have to say thank god to the fact the 4 interns with the 6990's are trading them for 590s...So will any admin/tech/office person that has to deal with the jet engines all day...

Sorry but, most of the reviewers, agree with me.


So a 590 is pleasing to listen to even though it is just as loud as a 5970 and GTX 480?

Right....

Dude, you're still on the wrong track. Almighty didn't correct you for the noise or temperature. You said that the 590 has less power consumption over the 6990, which is false. The only time that is true is when they flip the bios switch. But then the 6990 is even faster than the 590.

What you are arguing is that 590 has better cooling than the 6990, which is true according to the reviews. That doesn't make the Nvidia card more efficient than the AMD card.

I meant that generally, not towards you.

Every ATI fanboy in the world is using that as fodder when, in the same exact situation a 6990 would've fried.

To everyone comparing noise, it's still unbearable vs more unbearable.

Hope you don't buy it and overclock it... that thing is almost quite literally a bomb.

This is basically what I'm pulling from the reviews...

Stock clocks = pretty much a tie... nvidia might have squeaked by with a win here by a couple percentages

Idle power consumption = AMD win

Load power consumption = AMD win in anything besides OCCT/Furmark. nvidia clearly wins in those stress tests, but to do so, they throttle with overzealous overcurrent protection.

Temps = slight nvidia win, except for Furmark/OCCT, because of nvidia's OCP.

Noise = Clear nvidia win. AMD's whiny blower fan makes not only an irritating noise, but is also very loud.

Overclock ability = Clear AMD win. nvidia's card had exploding VRM's during TPU's tests(and apparently with other reviewers as well), and overzealous overcurrent protection prevents you from benefiting from a high overclock anyways.

Normally, I'd say it comes down to what games the consumer plays (AMD favored games or nvidia favored games), consumer's tolerance for noise, whether the consumer is concerned about power consumption, whether you prefer the color red or green, and whether the consumer plans on overclocking the card, but...

nvidia's card lights up! So, nvidia pulls through with the win!

Your really should be careful which site(s) you read though... just like watching the news, you should check more than one source.

And just like what was said when the 6990 was released... unless you like playing with super binned chips or don't have an accommodating PCIe layout in your motherboard, you're better off using using single-gpu cards.

So, this marks the end for this generation's GPU wars... for the most part. I'd say it was a tie this round... wouldn't you?

Like I said, read ALL of the reviews, not just 1, average the numbers.

The 590 in ALL other reviews I've seen this morning has NEVER gone above 40db on full load.

Read them all, educate yourself and feel free to comment.

I will admit in some of the reviews this is true, in some it's not...My personal feelings are when the next set of drivers are released, the consumption will change but for now, you're both correct; which I've said, I'll give you efficiency for the time being

Okay from what I've seen in the reviews:

- The GTX 590 performs better or just as well as the HD6990 in 2560x1600, while the 6990 leaps ahead in much higher resolutions.
- Both cards are trading blows in terms of power consumption; sometimes the 590 is more efficient, other times it's more power hungry.
- The GTX 590 has a quieter fan at 40-45 dB at default speeds, while the 6990 can manage to put out 50 db
- DX11 performance in the 590 is frankly not good when compared to the 6990
- Overclocking headroom is good for the 590, up to 800+ MHz core clocks

IMO, there's no clear winner. Unless people are gonna game on extremely high resolutions, surround or 3D then both the 590 and 6990 are excellent cards. The HD 6990 is still more powerful according to reviews, but the difference is not that far behind compared to the GTX 590 - maybe 3-5% in FPS.

Why argue, guys? Can't we agree that both are winners, and that we are the ones that benefit from this competition?

So you prefer the sound of a jackhammer vs. a F16? Right I understand.

*sigh*

"Better" or "worse" is an opinion. Everyone has their own personal preference and everyone has different uses for their gpu. As the reviews show, it depends on what game you are playing, if you are folding, etc. I use CUDA for a number of different applications, and I have been biased towards nVidia since their linux support back in the day. The noise level is also a factor for me because I sleep in the same room as my pc.

Because I have only one pcie slot available and money set aside for tech stuff, I will be getting a dual-gpu card and for me that means a 590.
