I am also surprised by how many people are calling this card a flop on the net, its a VERY fast card and driver improvements i am sure will make it even better. So the 6990 might be 30 fps faster but who would notice when your over 100fps anyways!? again the noise of a 6990 would do my head in!
I have to agree. The 6990 may be faster by a smidge, but for the 590 to keep up with it at lower clocks, heat and noise...I wouldn't call it a flop either.
I'm still not going to pay 700 bucks for it or the 6990 though.
