    sli wasnt per say in its infancy. 2004-2005 was prime time for sli. the 9800gx-2 launched back in 2008.

    Great looking card but there's no way I will be able to justify the price.

    SLI didn't really take off until the 8800 series. Most people prior to that were still on AGP.

    Obviously Nvidia does not expect huge orders for the GTX690 compare to something like the 680 and 580 where they make the bulk of their profits. This is all about bragging rights by having the most powerful single card solution on the market.

    I totally agree. Never had any problems myself either and I've run various SLi set ups for a number of years now whether two cards or a single SLi card.

    Cant wait for the review on this card. But tbh, I'm more interested in seeing the review for the 690 classified. Hopefully Hilbert is able to get one whenever EVGA releases it.

    Yep, thats the way I see it too.

    Except 680 or 580 wont make the bulk of their profits, but rather the mid and lower range cards.
