should give me plenty of time to sell my leftovers now, I also have to wait too when I get this card cause of waterblock, wont be out on day one, have to wait a bit.
I wouldn't expect to see prices "slashed" at all. These cards are targetting enthusiasts, not mainstream buyers....and will probably have a limited production run.

I dunno guys, but if you really want a 690 and you are going to spend 1k on a card, then you more than likely should have the money to burn. May as well get 2 680's and get better performance.

Unless someone is crazy enough to spend over 2 grand on 2 690's....

WHERE IS BODAR!?

I plan on running 2 of these 690's,i said this long ago if there any good that is.

I want more than 2x680's without the price tag of 4 physical cards,using up more space,generating more heat etc.

2x690's will blow 2x680's clean out of the water without the massive price tag and physical space of 4x680's in sli.

Its also more expensive over here than $2k for 2x690's,i wish the price was the same as it was in the USA as id snap 2 of em up right away,i may still snap 2 up yet anyhow,depends on how i feel on the day and how the reviews are.

Also before you say it i dont get problems with stuttering,well i havent so far because if i did i wouldnt be buying a 690(s).

I'm not buthurt. This is good for people who have PCIe x16 slots that are two slot instead of three slot like new motherboards. I will eventually buy a second GTX680 when I upgrade my motherboard.

The thing is Steve30x by spending your money on another 680,the total price of your 2 gpus will be around the same price as the 690 anyhow so it dont really matter.

People that are butthurt from buy a 680 i say this....the 690 is double the price of a single 680,people seem to forget this,they seem to assume that the 690 is double the power of a single 680 all for the same price of a 680.

Like ive said before,You get what you pay for

in this case you dont get hat you pay for. You get less power for the same price as two GTX680's , but the good thing is you get double the Vram.

Actually 2x680s cost more here in the UK than a 690 will rumoured to be so you do get what you pay for.

You are getting that from a rumoured price. Not an actual price.

no you do not get double the vram. 690 consists of 2 680`s with 2 gb of ram each. same a 2 physical 680`s. the ram is mirrored.

@Steve30x

the 690 IS "as fast as two 680s", since the hardware is identical to the 2x680 cards and only has little bit lower clocks (which can be OC by manufacturer) AND its more efficient than the 2 cards...

For that price, Don't know why they didn't go to 4 Gig chips like
the Non Ref 4 Gig cards about to come out.

I would imagine so, that is what the crowbar was for.

Plus, we have already saw an unboxing video, and since reviews usually take a few days i would imagine most sites already have them.

This is the most retarded product/price of all time. Base clock reduced from 1006mhz of 680 to 915mhz, but priced exactly double that of 680.

Only of interest to someone who can fit no more than 1 2-slot card in their mobo (so they can get sli) - but that person is NOT the target market.

These cards are going to be wanted for high res gaming where you need more RAM, so having only 2GB of RAM per core is pretty retarded when there are 4GB 680s available.

Well done on promotion, look forward to beating you.





Any benchmarks on this card?
Sick of ATI's Missfire issues, would of bought a 590 last year if they did not blow up.
Really considering this card.
