I don't get the leaked specs/expected performance. How can the 6970 be put into the 6990 with such high clocks and the 580 can't be put into the 590 with higher clocks than 600? The 580 runs almost the exact same temperature as the 6970 and the TDP is lower (although the card does actually tend to draw more power at load than the 6970). It really seems like either these specs are fake or nVidia has a huge problem on their hands!

I bet part of the problem is that 6970s seem to scale better in 2-way CF than 2-way SLI.
