Shows the 6990 only 3 db ahead of the 590. I guess that 3 is only a "few", right? I'll give you that I was wrong on the loudest ever scale though, quite a few older cards seem to surpass both of them in the right situations. Which makes me wonder why you're making such a big deal about sound, you loved the GTX 480, its the loudest card on there.
LOL

I "cherry pick" Anandtech, Toms Hardware, and The Tech Report, three of the most respected and read hardware review sites on the planet.

Your "better information" comes from Hardware Info, a website I've never heard of from a foreign land in a foreign language.

Your post is the definition of "cherry picking", how many dozen reviews did you have to go through to find one that made your point?

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/A...TX_590/22.html

5db louder at TechPowerup

http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-590-review/9

Go figure- 5db louder at Guru3d, just like TechPowerup and AnandTech.

http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...review-21.html

11db at Hardware Canucks

So there you have it, six measured sound tests from six of the big English language review sites that say the 6990 is 5-11db louder than the GTX590. How could they all have made this horrible mistake only Hardware Info from the Netherlands was saavy enough to discern?!?!?

I await your link to a site in Kazakistan which is the "deciding factor" in your opinion. The rest of the world can read the reviews I linked to and know the truth.
