    Yeah I was wondering that myself. Even nVidia don't really believe that, hence why they had to go back well over a year to find TWIMTBP games that it can beat the 6990 in.



    It's actually quite worrying, the 590 is only beating the 580 by 10% in a few of those.

    The only benchie thats sub vsync is Crysis.

    What is really worrying for NV is that the haven't peddled out unigine and neglected metro if that is their slide....

    That scaling is woeful! Maybe it's a spoiler to disarm the competition and make the product look worse that it actually is - wouldn't have expected them to show any slides where they are beaten by the 6990.

    Yeah unfortunately for nVidia, they seem to have chosen games with bad scaling in both sli and crossfire, which speaks volumes.

    Ah it's only 2 more days till the full reviews, but judging by that slide the 6990 will be fastest single card for 2011 and nVidia can look forward to putting the Fermi episode behind them.

    Re: News - NVIDIA excites geeks with teaser video of next-gen graphics card

    its not that bad but it is at the same time .

    Maybe the performance is down to the declocking, now the 6990 there is clocked at 830/880 where as the nvidia card would be nearing 600mhz(probably). Lot of games nowadays seem like good high clocks just like cpu's. Downclock 2 gtx580's and you might get similar levels, however id say its better to get the amd dual gpu or just get some cards in sli/crossfire.... 6950/460's anyone?
