EVGA GTX690 Review including SLI

Test Setup

The main thrust of our review today is to test the GTX690, but we wouldn't be Overclock3D if we didn't push the boundaries a little, so today we'll also be benchmarking two EVGA GTX690s in SLI, to see how Quad-SLI performs with these cards.

EVGA GTX690 (x2)
ForceWare 304.79
Intel Core i7-3960X @ 4.6GHz
ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
Corsair AX1200W
Corsair GTX8
Corsair H100
Noctua NF-F12 Fans
Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Temperatures

Considering how much silicon is hiding beneath that sleek cooler, the load temperatures are very good indeed, just shy of a plain GTX680.

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
