Quote: "the GeForce GTX 690’s performance is almost identical to a pair of GeForce GTX 680s in SLI, but with significantly reduced power and noise"

"The GPUs on the GeForce GTX 690 have a boost clock of 1019 MHz, just a hair (2.8%) shy of the GeForce GTX 680 at 1058 MHz. What's more, all other specs are identical; the number of cores, memory speed, and memory bandwidth per GPU are the same on both cards."

Interesting. And apparently quieter? Nicely done

Price isn't too bad for what it is either. US $999, cheaper than SLI 680's. But still ALOT of money. Would be interesting to see the specs on a over-clocked GTX690, as I would suggest to anyone here mad enough to consider buying one. lol

That being said, that's ALOT of graphics power. Unless you are trying to run a Triple-Screen setup, I wouldn't think any current games of this year will need more than a single GTX680? Over-kill in my opinion.
