a friend of mine has it, and he plays sooo many titles, no problems whatso ever.
5970 is under 300W, and its reasonably quiet for its performance, and rumours tell us that 6990 is even better made in every area.
4870x2 broke in 6 months, while friends still rock with the 5970 without needing to dustclean them like they did with old x2 cards.
times change... microstutter is still present tho, to a certant degree.
Well, my friend got the 5970, he couldn't even play BC2 with decent fps, he had like 20fps or so for most of his games. Note that he has a 980X CPU.
He was able to get rid of most of the bugs after several patches, fixes and drivers. It took him many months....too much frustration.
I'm just saying that for some reason Dual GPU graphic cards tends to have a higher than average failure rate and there many other options to choose from which are more efficient and more cheaper.
