The D600 is in a class of its own, I suspect the A99 will be in the D800 class as far as DPreview scores are concerned, and thus I'd expect it will not get gold for the EVF and 1/3 stop SLT loss...

But I think for the money, the D600 deserves it's score!

after having used a d800 then buying the a99 and seeing how much better it is overall while having less MP the only thing stopping a gold is dpr ignorance or fanboyism over canikon because i can assure you its on par with d800 if not better due to its other features and its sure as heck much more usable in nat light for portraits especially as you start heading below 1/250th of a sec where you often get movement blur on d800

but i couldnt be stuffed what rating they give it because i think its a serious piece of hardware

You like it so much so who cares what DPreview say. Unless you do care. If you like it and you feel it is better than the rest, then just go ahead and enjoy it. Have you seen people dumping their D5100s for the A57 just because the latter has gold award? No. What do these awards mean in practical terms? Unless you can translate that into actual shooting results, they mean nothing. I know for Sony being a smaller player, such awards carry a lot of weight for some but in the end what matters is what you can do with such gear
