    Imho,

    Indeed on game-play! However, personally don't see a dramatic or substantial shift in improvements with game-play based on this may systematically lock a title to one vendor - hence, why many of the effects are improvements, subjectively with fidelity.

    This may take a complete effort by the industry itself on dramatic shifts on game-play but how does one start the ball rolling? Begin? In a competitive landscape? Where these resources may be cost immense?

    I got no solutions, just hope :)
    Maybe nVidia could make drivers for AMDs cards since they have an open driver policy. Or maybe havoc or one of the other finally manages to make a good enough openCL/DirectCompute solution.

    The 690 is still the fastest video card. So they have the performance lead. They have the sales lead.

    The software adaptive vsync for crossfire was pretty impressive. Too bad the translation was so bad that I couldn't really understand what was being said about it. The graphs looked good though. I believe it was part of Radeon Pro? I would imagine something similar could be easily adapted to Nvidia GPU's which looks like it would be great news for dual card users for both brands.

    I'm very sensitive to framerates and that's the main reason why I have never tried SLi/Xfire because I'm almost positive I would see the micro stutter.

    Yes. It's a feature of Radeonpro calling DFC.

    Combining this with vsync you have the smoothness of frame metering with the absence of tearing. Seems like a great tool for crossfire users (non crossfire users can also be benefited by these functions).

    Ok, with some drops in single player on the best NV card(s), expect massive drops in heavy fights in multiplayer (20 fps etc. gtx 690, gtx 670 @1250MHz so faster then a 680).

    Yeah when you look at pedantically like that, but the 690 was priced as if is was a special edition custom job, as far im considered and most others seeing as your the first to moan about it, when some says the fastest card available then it does not specifically mean non custom jobs hence the name of the article.
    On all the other sites that i have seen the article posted not one pep from people saying its not the fastest because it not from AMD them self.

    I did because i didn't say the Asus Mars 590 was not the fastest because you presumed that i would claim the 6990 to be.
    It does not matter what you think of the test, it does not change the facts.

    Going by your point until recently 680 lightning was the fastest card available.But everybody said 7970Ghz ed was the fastest funny.

    It depends on the specifics of the question and the context.
    The fastest card available between the 2 brands is the fastest card available, custom or not.

    Exactly the "context".So depending on games 690 can still be considered the fastest and the "ms" issue is much bearable compared to "amd" alternatives.

    If some asked which is the fastest standard non custom cooler/PCB gfx card from each brand then yes seeing as it wins by default because a non custom dual GPU 7xxx does not exist from AMD.
    Someone who is looking to spend such money on a dual GPU would not get hungup on such a insignificant technicality, im not buying it because it has not got designed by AMD stamped on the PCB.

    nVidia has frame limiters, flexibility with V-sync, software and hardware frame rate metering.

    Stop being silly, your constant hair-splitting nitpicking does not change anything except making things tiresome, even the Devil 13 is beating the 690 now.
    And more on the way.
