http://www.geforce.com/whats-new/articles/article-keynote/ http://videocardz.com/324...unches-geforce-gtx-690 NVIDIA has just officially announced their newest graphics card from GeForce 600 Series. The GeForce GTX 690 is dual-gpu card based on 28nm Kepler GK104 core and is now considered the fastest graphics card available on the market. Prepare your motherboard — because it’s big, prepare your power supply — because it’s power hungry, prepare your wallet — because it’s not cheap.
If you ever wondered how it is to have two GTX 680 cards connected in SLI mode, but your motherboard didn’t have enough space, or your power supply couldn’t feed 400 Watts of power, then NVIDIA has just came up with a new solution for you. The GeForce GTX 690 will provide performance of two GTX 680s, will consume as low as 300W, will only take two slots and finally — it will cost you $999. Some may say, it’s insane to buy such an expensive card, but believe me, it will be capable of running any game with top quality on multiple monitors for quite some time.
So what is GeForce GTX 690? NVIDIA has packed it up with two GK104 GPUs on one board. It requires two 8-pin power connectors and will consume around 300 Watts (that’s more than your first rigs..). It will therefore provide great overall performance.
GeForce GTX 690 cooler is made of cast aluminum with trivalent chromium plating. The central fan housing is created from injection molded magnesium alloy keeping it from vibrations. Fan will have 3000 RPM itself, but NVIDIA claims it won’t be noisy at all. They invented new cooling technology called dual-water chambers. Card was built on twelve-layer PCB.
Card has imprinted GeForce GTX 690 signature, and when it is in use it has a LED GeForce GTX signature lightning up. NVIDIA has also released new technology called NVIDIA Experience
, which will officially be announced on June 6h. It is cloud based PC configurations optimization trough sophisticated data centers. Idea is quite simple, GeForce cards will be connected to some external server, which will provide the best available settings for your computer. It will be optimized for best performance by controlling texture quality, tessellation, anisotropic filtering and anti-aliasing. Also it will be a platform to keep your components up to date.
