    Maximum disappointment if this true.
    They had to go back years to find games that it can beat the 6990 in. Sad :(

  • JEskandari

    why they didn’t used Lost Planet ,Dirt 2 , Civilization 5 , H.A.W.X 2 and such game

    at least in those games they had better advantage compared to crysis Warhead or 3dMark

    I think two day delay was to improve driver performance to shine in benchmarks, this maybe with old drivers.

  • DrBalthar

    *LOL* Epic fail!

  • When it comes to price on this occasion, it doesn’t really matter to me if I pick AMD or Nvidia unless reviewers pick out flaws. It’s still a great lineup; 6990 vs 590. I would pick a 580 purely for single display but the latest games would show different results.

    The only benchmarks I was interested in as a hardware enthusiast was 3dMark11, FarCry2, and Crysis: Warhead.

    Interesting results overall. I was a little disappointed nothing more recent was included when it comes to playing the latest games on the latest hardware – even Black Ops maxed out would appeal to most as most games are still played DX9. Old-ish engine I know, then I would say show Metro 2033 but not many PCs can play this due to the extreme tessellation. Which is why you should show games / benchmarks that really pushes the latest GPUs – even Heaven Benchmark 2.5 (DX11) would do.

    Well, to my personal choices I have always liked AMD Radeons above all else. I’ll just stick with my 5970 for now and buy 2x 6990 later on :-)

    GeForce didn’t do bad, but it just doesn’t match up well at all with the HD6990.

    nvidia wins with a lot of other games too… both 6990 and 590 are actually fairly even as far as fps goes… wait untill the gtx 595 comes out :)

  • ElManiac

    Oh dear nVidia wins again;)

  • theoneandonlymrk

    yeh if you game at 1280×1024 nv win but no one does. and if they do they need a new scrn stat.

    i dont see any clear victory for either team their so itd come down to price imho
