This card is coming out soon with the price of around 500 bucks, is it worth is to buy it instead of going with Gerforce GTX 590?

What 'not good'?

Wasn't it suppose to be better with only up to GTX 580? If you are looking for GTX 590 killer, wait for 7990.

It will be cheaper than the 580 with better performance lower power consumption and highly overclockable. The 590 is around 50% more expensive for under 20% performance increase. No I won't be buying one but will maybe get a 7770-7870 card when released.

You shouldn't compare a single GPU card (7970) with a dual core GPU (590). It's misleading.

For the ones interested in performance/power ratio, 7970 is a very very nice contestant.
