Keep trying. If I recall, I have said the 6990 sucks like 9001 times since it has been out. Thing is, the 590 sucks too. The problem is you won't admit it.

Would you like to see my GTX 570? Why would I own that if I was a ATI fanboy?

It is amusing to me that he is the rollo for you, just like you're the rollo for the rest of us.

Why don't we just unsticky this thread and start a new one for GTX 590 owners.

I've been stopping by here looking for legitimate feedback from real owners and all I see is this Detroit of a thread happening here.

I stand up for Nvidia... when they make a good product. I don't think the GTX 590 is a good product. Its performance is fine, but its lack of power regulation circuitry is a travesty. Nvidia believes that all of that performance can be controlled via drivers as opposed to hardware-based power regulation. That's already bit them in the ass once. I wouldn't be surprised if it happens again.

In this case, AMD got it right by using hardware-based power regulation. Yea, it made the card bigger and noisier due to the increased circuitry and heat, but it means the product will last longer. It's just a string of compromises from both companies.

Again, consumers don't tend to side with products that are flawed. On that same token, I wouldn't recommend a 6990 either.

You troll people continuously telling them that they are wrong, when in fact, they are usually right, but you don't like the source that the information is coming from. What does that say about yourself? Perhaps you're the troll. Ever thought about that one?

The GTX 590 could have been a lot better than it actually was. End of story.

Everything "could be better than what it was", the point here is that the 590 is better than the competing part in many ways.

As far someone being "right" and me being "wrong", care to post a link to that?

AMD and nV users can get along here just fine... until Rollo shows up. Then even "die-hard" nV users like me start to take the AMD side of things
When users like you post misinformation about NVIDIA parts I step in and post links to review sites that show people your information is flawed.

Like when you said the GTX590s 1.5GB per GPU framebuffer made the card worthless and I posted links to about 17 popular games where it is enough at 57X10, and the largest hardware survey on the planet that showed the number of people this might affect is less than 1%.
