NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 4GB Launched!
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Today, NVIDIA's highly anticipated next generation dual 'Kepler' graphics card has been officially unveiled. This ultra-high-end model features two fully-fledged GeForce GTX 680 GPUs with a total of 3072 cores and a 4GB 2x256-bit 6008Mhz GDDR5 memory interface. Unlike the previous generation, this card's GPU and shader clock speeds have only been moderately reduced when compared to a regular GTX 680, but that this reduction was a necessary concession in order to reduce power consumption numbers down to a mere 300W. Equally unexpected, NVIDIA have managed to make the GTX 690 impressively quiet and cool running thanks to an extremely impressive cooling system. Price wise this new models comes in at a lofty $999 or twice what the typical GTX 680 2GB costs.
