GeForce GTX 690 with dual GK104 circuits coming together
  1 / 7    
[font=Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif][size=4][left]NVIDIA continues as expected with its first Kepler based graphics card sporting dual GPUs.

[font=Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif][size=4][left]The information on Nvidia's new flagship is pretty scarce, but according to [url="http://www.expreview.com/19082.html"]Expreview[/url] the first bits on the coming GeForce GTX 690 has appeared. As expected Nvidia will use two of the recently launched 28nm GK104 GPUs for a total of 1536 CUDA cores and 256-bit memory interface each.[/left][/size][/font]

[font=Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif][size=4][left]The graphics circuits will operate with GPU Boost just like GeForce GTX 680 to keep the frequencies - and thus performance - at optimal rates automatically depending on the load. Unfortunately it doesn't say how high the clock frequencies will be, but with two 8-pin power connectors the card can devour up to 450 watt, but we wouldn not say that is very likely. Nvidia will require a power supply rated 650 watt for the system, which is a step up from the 550W it recommends for the single-GPU card GeForce GTX 680.

One sentence:

I want pix :D I wonder if it'll be longer or the same size as a 590. Given it'll have more vRAM, I'd hope it is at least SLIGHTLY longer... but who knows with how they can cram stuff on a PCB these days!

As long as it's not as long as the notorious "video tape" 6990 X_X My biggest complaint about those things (besides the noise) was the ridiculous length. As I recall the 590 is significantly smaller... let's hope the 690 follows the same path and HOPEFULLY has rear-exit-only exhaust ala the GTX 275 Co-Op editions. I hate hot air being blown in my case, and I'm sure most people didn't really like the 6990/590 exhausting air back in to the case out one end.

Okay that was a paragraph... X_X

680ti???? whaaa?

seems someone typo'd

it just means the card requires a full slot and takes up the bandwidth - otherwise you lose performance
but I somehow seriously doubt it takes a whole x16 slot at 2.0.... a fermi uses up x8 at 2.0
x16 at pcie 2.0 is a lot of bandwidth even for a dual fermi card...so for a 680, 670ti should be enough

benchies! tho way i already told my self i will await for the 700 series! ( wont have money till the end of the year either way /pinch.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':pinch:' />)

it sucks not to be filthy rich.... heheheh the rig you see on my sig took one year to gather all the parts!

By the length in the picture and the restrictions from the backplate - it will probably be another center fan that sends air both out the back and into the case...

It looks to be longer than a 590. Almost as long as a 6990. Like I said though: I won't mind if it's long IF it's rear-exhaust only, it'll be a sweet one.

Uh, as I stated, the GTX 275 Co-Op edition was dual GPU & rear-exhaust only. And, the 690 according to rumors, IS rear exhaust only. IF it is, that in of itself would make it a far better card than any previously released dual-GPU solution.

Also, if that picture Xavier posted is legit, it looks like it WILL be rear exhaust, based on the bracket.

I disagree. That bracket makes it less likely, as the one of the DVI ports are on the second bracket part. Had this been intended as an external-exhaust only card, they'd want to give it as much exhaust space as possible without compromising on connectivity - reference GTX 580 style, which you're obviously familiar with.

Look closer. I think its possibly a three slot bracket. thatd make sense since you can't put more than two in a computer for graphics usage at least.

Uh look closely. It is a 2-slot bracket :)

Look at the bottom for a better idea.

3 slot would be too big, at least for reference design. 3 slots would make the use of other add-in cards nearly impossible with Quad SLI.
