EVGA GTX690 Review including Quad 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.
