Isn't this what half of OCN predicted when the first Fermis were released and used massive amounts of power and generated a ton of heat? I remember plenty of discussions about a GTX490, and how there was no way it could be two 480s. The 5xx series was a bit more efficient, but it seems to still be trouble for Nvidia with this card.

Regardless, dual-GPU cards always seem to be finicky and I don't think I'd ever consider one over two single GPU cards in SLI/Crossfire
69xx series uses about the same amount of power as the 5xx series. The problem with the 590 is that it uses the 570's already poor power system to power 580s. If they designed the 590 with the 580's power system, the 590 would be an absolute beast

does this count?

Saulin doesn't have a clue about the 6990. The 6990 waterblocks are just reaching us, and we will start seeing some crazy OC soon, putting it way out of reach of the 590, particularly wthe 590 with the latest drivers and the crazy throttling you get when you OC it (go read HardOCp review on that subject).

The AUSUM BIOS (OC BIOS) on the 6990 doesn't have any TDP limits, or an almost impossible to reach limit. PowerTune is only working on the other default BIOS. That's a MAJOR advantage compared to the hard-lock 590.

Read Anandtech about the 6990 BIOS here: ''The card they beg you to overclock'' (nice page title btw)

http://www.anandtech.com/show/4209/a...le-card-king/4

''Along with the increase in the core clock and the voltage, AMD’s documentation also lists the PowerTune limit as being increased for uber mode. AMD tells us that the limit here is 450W (540W with +20% PT), however in our testing we were unable to hit that limit. Every test up to and including FurMark ran unthrottled, and we peg power consumption there at over 500W. If indeed there isn’t a PowerTune limit this is good news for extreme overclockers''

That',s the way to do a proper enthusiast card. No limit, no OCP, no throttling, no hard-lock voltage.

I can't believe OCN enthusiasts are still buying the 590 when the competition is so much better. You have to be a major zealots, or totally uninformed, to buy a 590 today.

''Nvidia 590, the card they beg you NOT to overclock.'' lol.

Really now?

Same review different benchmarks

If the 6990 is the world's fastest card or is so much better how come it still loses in half the benchmarks?

6990 isn't the fastest card nor GTX590 since they trade blow @ stock. However, 6990 is a better card this round since it can be OC'ed, OV'ed, etc.., and after that 6990 is faster @ higher res too.

Why are you still arguing with someone that is an obvious brand fanatic. The 590 could blow up every other card, lose 99% of the time, and call your grandma a ho and he would still defend it. Ignore him people, he is 003 reincarnated.

If AMD didn't fail so hard with their blow dryer fan I wouldn't be so opposed to buying one.

I guess ATi wasn't BSing when they said the 6990 was the fastest card in the world.
