Obvious flamer comment that doesn't really deserve a response. But I've decided to respond anyways, since it's in extremely bad taste. Please don't start to start flaming wars, thanks.

12 inches! That will not fit in my case!

I guesstimate $600 or more and it will outperform the 580 especially at high res. New high performance champ? Possibly!

YOUR MOVE NVIDIA!
Muahahahah!

Stop comparing the 6990 to GTX580

its a dual vs a single.
GTX480 was emberrasing when it caught up the the dual gpu 5970 in like few benchmarks

Thats when we compare
