Nvidia have revealed their new flagship graphics card, the GTX 690. Available from May 3rd for $999 (£615), it features a dual-Kepler GPU with cast aluminium casing that should squeeze out performance equal to that of two GTX 680s pulled together in SLI.
“The GTX 690 is truly a work of art–gorgeous on the outside with amazing performance on the inside,” said Brian Kelleher, senior vice president of GPU engineering at NVIDIA.
“Gamers will love playing on multiple screens at high resolutions with all the eye candy turned on. And they’ll relish showing their friends how beautiful the cards look inside their systems.”
Very, very cool. To hammer home the point, here’s a breakdown of the key specifications:
CUDA Cores: 3072
Base Clock: 915 MHz
Boost Clock: 1019 MHz
Memory Configuration: 4GB / 512-bit GDDR5
Memory Speed : 6.0 Gbps
