    i already feel sad on my 6990..... that stuff geting to fast ,
    my 4870x2 done good jobs for over 3 years (still rocks on BF3 for that age) ,
    i have my 6990 now almost 6 month and i already see it´s getting old after that period :(

    me wonders why they don´t release it

    spider, dragon , scorpion, .... platform related

    instead of coding the stuff right on current cpu´s / gpu´s they just making things faster for merchandise hypes

    idk how did u got to that conclusion, moreover how did you got to it based on a stupid synthetic benchmark. the sapphire 1335Mhz gpu will be as fast as a single HD6990\GTX590

    What gets me giddy is that Voltage Control is not allowed on these cards yet. So after Voltage Control is unlocked just imagine the "Potential" of these cards. Reference designs should be able to fly to 1.2 GHz on the core! :D

    See we either now need a new standard for game graphics that can take advantage of these beastly GPU's or monitor mfr's need to give us more than shitty 1080p on a single monitor that isn't going to cost $600+ otherwise us single monitor gamers will have no need to upgrade for at least 2 years (excludes upgrading because of e-peen envy)

    You could always force more AA samples or use a more taxing method, still I fully agree that it's crazy I had to pay more than 1k for some 1600p monitors

    Well for starters, fake news.

    [​IMG]

    A professional overclocker (korrrhonen) couldnt reach more than 1285Mhz with watercooling and Sapphire's aircooled card does better? Also, even impossible for the Sapphire's watercooled version. 1125MHz maybe, but not 1325MHz.

    Doesnt matter whether it's the 3GB or 6GB model, nothing else is different than the vRam size.
