    @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.

    Later:)

    no i said i dont like quad sli because the scaling starts to suck big time past 2 cards:puke2:
    but generally i would take 2 cards over 1 single dual card

    wait for reviews, see how the cooling is. VRMs shouldnt blow like they did in the 590.

    Should be a pretty solid card.

    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. :grin:

    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. :rolleyes:

    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.

    Only Nvidia's own benchmarks.

    Should be lots of reviews on Thursday.

    You will still get issues with SLI, just different issues to what your used to.

    The current issues I have with ATI are:
    1. It takes them up to 2 months after a game release(Major or small) for a decent Xfire Profile(Many times these profiles just turn Xfire off for better performance). It seem Nvidia already have profiles ready 2 months "before" gamereleases.
    2. Negative Xfire scaling
    3. Buggy Drivers
    4. Rage Still broken on ATI cards! As Carmack said ATI's communication with devs is piss poor.

    What issues will I encounter with Nvidia? Never had issues with my last SLI x2 6600's in 2004.
