Windows 7: Sapphire 4GB '5990' unvieled

There is no stopping ATI at the moment but I hear quite a few people have been having trouble with Catalyst drivers, but I'm planning to get a HD 5750 soon.

hm... lets see if thats what the 5970 does to nvida's new card...... the benches against the 5990 will be slaughter
Yea, let's see what a dual GPU card does to a single GPU card

yeah, but it wansn't ati who said, "let's make this to go against nvidias new card." it was the other way around... nvidia came out and intentionally wanted to go against ati's top dog... so dual gpu or not, it is the matchup nvidia is looking for--so if it's a slaughter, nvidia asked for it.

two more cents:
if i have a souped up pinto and while on the street see a twin turbo porche and challenge said car to a race--then get my @$$ handed to me, who's fault is it? don't blame the porche cause the pinto asked for the @$$ whoopin...
(the pinto is green... the porche is red...)

The GTX480 was never aimed at the 59xx's. Its competitor is the 5870.

so time, energy, r&d...
the flagship fermi card is going up against the second (soon to be third) card in the ati lineup? and the price is going to be WAY higher with performance slightly better?

sounds good to me...

So because ATI release a dual GPU card, that means that the single GPU flagship card Nvidia has automatically becomes that cards competitor?

Obviously the 5900 series aren't going to have a dual GPU card to compete against yet, same as when the 4870x2 was released before the GTX295...

Edit: Wait, you're not ThePizzaMan's brother or something, are you?

true but when they make the actual 5990...... single chip with the 28nm process..... which is gonna be super fast
