EVGA GTX690 Review including SLI

Up Close

SO we get to take a look at the GTX690 in the flesh and its easy to see nVidia have followed the basic design ideas from the GTX590 with the central fan location and the GPU cores either side. The back of the GPU is very plain though, no memory chips, no core braces, nothing very interesting back here at all.

On the side there is a large GEFORCE GTX logo that lights up, we loved the version on the 590 but always said it needed to be bigger. We think Nvidia have got it spot on this time round and it looks amazing lit up at night. Other things to point out would be the single SLI connector and the two 8pin power connections.

On to the bit we like best, the windows either side of the fan are a master stroke, this cooler looks completely awesome. The rest of the shoud actually looks like its bolted together, we never coud decide if it really was mostly metal or just very clever plastic but we dont care it looks awesome. We would go as far as to say this is the prettiest GPU we have ever had the pleasure of photographing here at OC3D!

Just a quick couple of shots to show the twin twins all curled up together provocatively!

thanks Tom, great insight on what is available and what possibilities these can provide.
the "overkill" was absolute nuts.. noted that the SLI config, the CPU scoring was elevated
from the single card tested. are you still attributing this to the simulation software?
don't think i'll be easing one , or like two into my system, but it was great to see them in
action. give that author a pat on the back!
one last was is there some validation that on these dual GPU card in SLI that the monitoring is
actual both cards, not just one card with two GPU? you had noted on the afterburner showing
dual fans on a single fan card.. just an observation...

A single GTX 690, with a BENQ XL2420T monitor.
3D-Vision ready and 120hz. Should be awesome
