So what? It's one website, I can post five others that say the 590 is the best thing since sliced bread.
Want to know what the "epic fail" is?
ATi promising five years ago, and every year since, their GPU accelerated physics "are comin' soon!"
ATi taking a year+ to deliver some sort of 3d that they also had been promising for a while, and it turns out to be a mess that some high school kids with a budget of $100 could have made.
ATi's "STREAM", should be named "DITCH" because devs have abandoned it.
ATi's 6990- even though it contains two of ATi's top GPUs clocked at almost full speed, it can only trade benches at standard gaming with the 590, all while making much more noise than the GTX480 ATi fans spent all last year ragging on for...wait for it...yep...the noise! I'd say the 6990 is this year's GTX480 but it doesn't decisively beat it's competition and have a superior feature set like that card did. It just annoys and fails.
