Thread Starter

OH yeah the GT590 in UAE is selling for 2,600DHS

whereas the HD6990 is selling for 2,800DHS

which makes GTX590 54$ cheaper than HD6990

I'm not really sure what people expect?

They are trying to push the card pretty hard to make it a full pledged 580 sli, when it doesn't have enough cooling nor power phases.

Another driver problem or should I say a newb trying to overclock. Who in his right mind thinks of overvolting a card like this and increasing the clock by 200Mhz without thinking about increasing the fan speed.

Then again why was the card shipped with those drivers too. When overclocking I keep an eye on temps and I know for a fact that the auto fan is meant to keep the cards quiet, not cool.

One more thing. You would think reviewers would use the latest driver available for the card they are reviewing, instead of what comes with the card.

That's just bad OC technique....

Really? You couldn't check the drivers? Really?!

HA! And nVidia fan boys say that AMD drivers are bad. At least there not killing cards

This isnt the first time this has happened to nVidia cards either.

I'm not really sure if its nvidia's fault.
Zotac shipped the card with their own CD with an old beta driver.

Besides, when you test the card, you don't use the CD drivers...

This reviewer bumped up the stock voltage from 0.938v to 1.2v with stock fan speed...what you gotta expect?

even GTX 580 the voltage limit is only 1.15v as nVidia claimed...

tell GTX 580 owner to jump from 0.938v to 1.2v without any proper cooling ,let's see what happens?

this guy simply just screwed up with his own error obviously... JMHO~

Ah, never noticed that...

Why did they not update the drivers first then...?

Seems kinda dumb to me.
