    Wow.... This is the biggest fail card I have ever seen. Only a 77Mhz OC on stock vcore add vcore and OCP is triggered lmao You can get all this fail for the low low price of $699.99 :D The card may be quiet but that's because it cant OC and has extremely reduced clocks. This card
    may be better but who knows, at a slight vcore boost the review card pulled another 100 watts. The Metro 2033 bench was BS, a single 6970 was doing 32fps and 2 in CFX was 36fps, obviously scaling wasn't working. Anyways dang near equal in everything but uses less power (maybe) and is quieter but still is fail because of low overclock ability. Maybe the EVGA 590 will remedy that but at $879 does it matter?

    Also the Hard OCP review used BF:BC2 to test loads and guess what? the Nvidia GPU used more power, instead of the furmark throttled BS. It also ran at about 89C to the 6990s 92C, it also seems to be more of GTX 570 SLI performance than 580 SLI. (Still only 1.5gb ram per GPU vs the 6990's 2gb each)

    As the review says

    WOW straight from TPU

    Glad to see you are getting one, Rob. When I noticed no review up I was concerned maybe nVidia wasn't supplying one. That, or you blew yours up too. :D

    I have a theory about why I didn't receive one on time, but I'll let you guys figure it out :) Hint: Our honest reviews might have something to do with it.
