Very true, but my 470 has seen 1.35V (while frozen) without complaining one bit.

You're kidding right? The 6990 is faster at stock, and actually uses good Volterra VRMs. So in addition to being faster at stock, the 6990 has more overclocking headroom and I haven't seen any reports of it blowing up like the GTX 590. Only downside is it runs a little bit hotter, but I think most people buying a $700 card might want to put it on water or anyway, in which case the 6990 clearly wins in all scenarios, especially at high resolutions thanks to the extra 512mb of VRAM per GPU.

Nvidia = fail

After this series of GPUs I'm sticking with AMD again. At least they know how to design the hardware properly and support the overclocking community. I miss my 5970 and crossfire 5870s already

I'm I thought this was impossible with the 6990 at stock?

Quote:
Update:

After our initial testing of the HD 6990 we moved the graphics card over to a backup system that we were using to test new games for our benchmarking suite. We were able to complete testing with the HD 6990 in some of our new benchmarks including H.A.W.X 2, Lost Planet 2 and DiRT 2, however, when we were testing the performance of Dragon Age II the HD 6990 died on us. At the time of it's demise the card was set at the stock 830MHz setting and the BIOS switch was in the default position. The fact that it died could have been that we tested the graphics card at both the 375W and 450W settings, but since the review we have left the settings at default level.

Presently this leaves Neoseeker without a HD 6990 for future testing. AMD will not warranty the card so we are left with no choice but to reach out to their partners to see if we can get a sample. So, from this point on it will only be seen in the benchmarks that were used at the time of the review until we can get a replacement.
