So that, vs this:
[MAJ] Dossier : cartes graphiques et dgagement thermique (page 22: Radeon HD 6990) - HardWare.fr

These cards need to be watercooled and that is just that.

For the nice sum of around $1,450.00 for a pair of GTX 590's for a Quad SLI setup. Nothing short of a pair of HD 6990's in quad Crossfire X can touch them.

P.S. If I had won the lottery I'd be really tempted on getting the following Rig.

Intel I7 990X CPU
Corsiar H60 Cooler
24GB Corsair 1600MHz Vengeance Memory
Gigabyte G1 Assasin Mobo
2 EVGA GTX 590 Classfied Video Cards
128MB Corsair Performance 3 SSD For OS
2TB WD Black for Storage
LG Bluray Burner Drive
a second Basic LG 18X DVD drive
all installed in the Coolermaster HAF-X Nvidia Edition Case
Powered by the Corsair 80-Plus Gold AX1200 PSU

And For the Monitor the DELL 30"

In north america, only ASUS and EVGA will be selling these cards, and all cards are made by nVidia (for nVIDIA I should say...)
Which means we wont see any Gigabyte UD/Asus DCU/MSI Hawk and other custom pcb & cooler designs? :(

Hold on...I might have been wrong there...

You want some FUD?

Non-reference GTX 590 should follow up shortly

I NEVER know what to think about FUD's news...LOL anyway, we'll have to WAIT and SEE.

Factory overclocked, non-reference cooled
It is not that common for non-reference cards to follow the launch so closely but we heard that at least some non-reference GTX 590s will be announced, if not even launched in the first weeks after the official launch.

We still can't confirm any details on how high will the actual factory overclock be and what kind of cooling would these non-reference cards go for, but it is nice to know that they're on the way. Some partners might even go for the full custom design with its own PCB. The GTX 590 is the new Nvidia's flagship and we are quite sure that some partners will try to squeeze a few MHz from the card, despite its high TDP.

Both my samples are overclocked to around 700Mhz and have been folding away under an assumed name for the last ~60 hours.

I see only a few areas where the GTX 590 beats the HD 6990 in our tests. I said as much in the conclusion and our "average" charts bear that out.
