Has it taken NVIDIA 2 years to develop a failing card?

With sites as diverse as Guru3D and Hexus all coming to the same conclusion as KitGuru, that the Radeon HD 6990 is measurably faster, overall, than the GTX590 – we decided to sit back on a Saturday night and consider how much work nVidia put into this card, how wayward nVidia’s performance predictions must have been and what this outcome really means. 
Well, a video seems to have been uploading by nVidia itself, in which claims are made that it took the company’s engineers more than 2 years to create the GTX590. 
So what? 
Well, two items worth noting here. First, the video appears genuine – and the guy with the losing card seems quite happy. Which seems strange, considering that when it was posted – nVidia would have already known that it doesn’t win. We don’t expect him to sit there with a pack of razor blades, but he seems overly joyous.
