    OMG OMG OMG looks sooo sexy...wonder if they are going to make fullcovers for THAT thing.
    Also wonder if it actually a good overclocker as Nvidia was mentioning.
    Also wondering if 7990 will be just as sexy
    *mind explosion*

    Lol my 7970 triple-corss doesnt look all that awesome anymore :nutkick:, thankfully I have a 4th card lying under the bench desk...time to water it up soon :rolleyes: ( well and swap one of the cards with low ASIC that pulls my system down, preventing healthy oc, can't seem to get stable past 1200/1600 at 1.225v ( 1.207 real))


    P.S. I'm not sure that it's 999$...maybe it's an error ? maybe its .... 666$ >:D

    AMD doesn't appear to care, or they're perfecting the 7990 (I say this with a grain of salt), since it has apparently been pushed back.

    Meh, either card is likely to be way too expensive for my peasant budget.

    Video reviews are terrible, and a waste of time. its been proven people remember less from a video than they do from text (or we'd learn from videos at school, and not text books) not to mention the ease of comparison between new and old reviews.


    video reviews are a complete waste of time.

    did we have a poll on this finding?

    I do like videos to supplement text reviews.. not that I want videos to 'replace' text reviews..
    previews like this or even tech demos can be an interesting supplement to articles..

    that's my personal opinion anyways(i am not demanding it! :eek:)

    We're too lazy for video reviews. We'd like our audience to read. The consequence of not reading is often typing out a lengthy comment question which is often already answered in the text.

    i've read quite a few studies on memory, and tricks to help people remember things better. plain text is pretty much the best way there is - for circumstantial evidence, look how traditional learning, and most modern communication is done.

    books, text message, email, online text only websites.


    if you want to know the phone number for your local KFC, you dont want to sit through a 20 minute video looking for the number - you want it written plainly on your screen.

    Nvidia really teach their marketing department very well..

    I will find good review elsewhere if TPU start using Video Review..i hate watching 2 different color progress bar racing together and what they call those annoying little twisting circle in the center of video? seriously i love read and take my time to absorb the review and carefully examine the performance number.

    Exactly the point =) yet Nvidia sells 2gb by default and prices in stores atm are higher then for ref. 7970 ( in many countries around the world, excluding U.S.). Begs the question why the cheapened-out on more memory, if their chip is less expensive the amd's to produce ? ( yeah yeah, aside from "profit", "profit", "profit" scheme)

    From those charts the conclusion is that AMD Cross scales a lot better than nvidia's SLI. So this could mean that also 7990 could be faster than 690...hmmmm. Interesting.

    You are forgetting to add "when it works".

    My current triplefire fails misirably in Skyrim and New vegas, when according to afterburner the gpu 3 is just sleeping, and gpu's 1 and 2 are going all over the place from 0% usage ( on both) to 70% usage on both, each location seems to trigger something in the driver that begins this crazy cycle.

    Offtopic: Oh and I get artifacts on the screen sometimes in skyrim, thought that might be the issue with the overclock -> but nope, same on default settings.
    I saw similar problem in Heaven, when you get the dragon flight-around during sunset, break texture lines, both on OC and default. Strange problem is -> doesnt happen in 3dmark 2011 on any settings, doesnt happen in BF3/Metro 2033/ Crysis 2 on any settings. Granted I didn't do a clean install of windows after my nvidia cards....cause I'm lazzy, and that might be the case, but still annyoing.
