GTX 690

Quote:
Capping off Nvidia's tease from earlier in the week, the company has taken the wraps off the GeForce GTX 690, which will be out on May 3. Price? Oh, a mere $999.

Calling it their new "flagship" card, Nvidia reckons performance from the dual-Kepler GPU -packing card equals that of two GTX 680s slung together in SLI.

It also looks pretty badass, with an exterior made from cast aluminium. Specs are as follows:

CUDA Cores: 3072
Base Clock: 915 MHz
Boost Clock: 1019 MHz
Memory Configuration: 4GB / 512-bit GDDR5
Memory Speed : 6.0 Gbps
Power Connectors: 8-pin + 8-pin
TDP: 300W
Outputs: 3x DL-DVI
Mini-DisplayPort: 1.2
Bus Interface: PCI Express 3.0

While an in-house performance chart looks like this:

Wrong way nVidia, I want the 660, not the 690. But dang that's beast.

It would be awesome to have a couple GTX690s and 3 monitors, so I could have a setup like this: http://www.moddb.com/mods/call-of-pr...lete-7680x1600

660 will definitely be stronger than the 680, or on par.

Unless nVidia do some awesome engineering I don't think they'll be able to do that at the same time as pricing it reasonably like the 460 and 560 both were/are. I want the 660 to usurp the 560Ti for 'Best Bang for Buck' type of card, not a powerhouse card for people with a lot of cash to spend on a rig like the 680 is. I'll gladly take a power dip if the price follows.

I'm calling it right now. The overclocked 660ti will be on par with the 680. Just watch! Normal probably 5-10fps max under it.

Well sure, an over-clocked one will be round about a standard 680, you're probably right. I was talking about just stock speeds though.

The 680 and 690 have been released in such rapid succession I'm hopeful a 660 isn't too far away.

I doubt it would even reach half its power. However your triple sli would definitely outdo it for power consumption so you have that.
