EVGA GTX690 Review including SLI

3D Mark Vantage

As always when we're dealing with a graphics card of such enormous potential performance, the lower resolutions and detail levels leave the card twiddling its thumbs awaiting more data from the CPU. Once we move from the Performance preset into the Extreme one the card really starts to work, although the HD7970 Crossfire and GTX680 SLI setups run things close. Of course two cards really do push the boundaries of what is possible, getting close to 50000 X Marks. 

3D Mark 11

The results remain roughly the same in the newer version of 3D Mark, although the HD7970CF bests the GTX690 in both P and X tests, with the GTX680 SLI better in Performance and worse in Extreme. The SLI setup is as mighty as you'd expect it to be.

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...
