It certainly isn't the 6990 crusher that folks were expecting, I warrant that. It's slightly more quiet though.
Actually it's a LOT more quiet.

This still isn't comparable to the whine of a screaming Radeon HD 6990

The GTX 590 simply embarrasses the 6990 here; itís not even a contest. Make no mistake: 57.9dB is not a quiet card; weíre still looking at a dual-GPU monster, but itís not the roaring monster that the 6990 is.
(notice how the 6990 is a whopping 6db louder than the GTX480 ATi fans spent last year complaining about in this link?)

The GTX 590's cooler is vastly quieter than the boisterous blower on the Radeon HD 6990.

Nevertheless, in a comparison between GeForce GTX 590 versus Radeon HD 6990, Nvidia wins.
And it wins because I can put a GeForce GTX 590 in my [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]workstation[/COLOR][/COLOR], which doubles as my gaming machine, and not hear it. Itís quiet enough to use. And thatís a requisite.
And that is the 590 is selling 1000s (straight from NVIDIA staff- they're selling all they can make) and why the 6990 is in stock all over. People can stand the 590 trading benchmarks with the 6990, but they can't stand the HSF that ATi inexplicably bolted on the 6990.

If you think the market is cluttered now, wait till the end of April. It will get worse since there are STILL a ton of last gen cards in the channel and more new cards being released next month.
SKY, do you care to elaborate? should we expect some high-end offerings in March? something fast and innovative? some nVIDIA products with good power delivery this time maybe???

I doubt he can say much due to NDA's.

I would only expect low end to upper mid range offerings. There's supposedly a non Ti version of the 560, GT 530, 6790, and EVEN MORE coming down the pipe.

AFAIK and thank's to Nvidia's roadmap for kepler, I think we can assume no high end new cards from nvidia for a bit... ATI has been pretty secretive, but everyone expects them to be releasing 67xx series cards.

well, the non ti aka 460? should fight off the 6790 aka 6850?

the 530 could be a 430 rebrand or the like,meh nothing too interesting unless they price them to make a killing,

Probably more underpowered crap like GTX 510 or something.
