I was also thinking that may be they are Going to launch GTX 690 but I was more sure that they will launch a lower model of 680 but they launced a top end model before lower models.Really :)

But it is really nice to know that 690 a beast of cards is launced. :D

I think they have launched GTX690 before lower versions GTX680 because of yield issue for 28nm at TSMC
it would be hard to satisfy the requirements of medium budget cards due to their sheer number
anyway I liked the card but can only dream of having it
 
Great that they're cannibalizing chips needed to get 680s out the door to paying customers so they can produce this monstrosity. Grrrr... At least wait til AMD comes out with a card that needs to be trumped. My nerd rage against nVidia is growing.

Ouch... great looking card, but wasn't expecting the $1000 price tag. Love the design and construction of the shroud, using metal instead of plastic. It certainly looks like a beast of a card, no doubt with specs and performance to match. It'll probably end up within 10% of GTX680 SLI performance.

Just because they priced it high doesn't necessarily mean they're greedy, maybe they went overkill with the technology.

who gives a rats buttocks about a new GPU? I was hoping they would announce cheaper tegra 3 tablets to be released TODAY. I can't even afford or power this crap. Which games would use it? I don't have a 100" monitor with 5000X3000000 res. sheesh. They made it out to be such a big announcement...

or was I the one who made it out to be a big announcement? lol

Unfortunately this is what competition brings. New hardware too soon and too costly to even matter. Yet games aren't even taking full advantage of what's been released long ago.

I guess I'll continue with my 3x 6950's flashed to 6970's. Honestly, I don't see a game in the near future that warrants an upgrade for a while. EVERYTHING I've thrown at my system is butter smooth, just the way daddy likes it!! I'll wait and see what is available 3 years down the road. =P

Not suggesting any bias, but I do hope that since GTX 690 got an article just for preview, without having any real performance figures, HD7990 gets one as well.

It is fair to assume anyone willing to drop $1000 in graphics card has a water cooled PC and will overclock. How, then, isnt SLI 680 GTX with water blocks overclocked not better in every way? More performance and less noise.

[citation][nom]runswindows95[/nom]Three DVI's and one mini-DP port? For that kind of money, I would hope for better input selections than that.[/citation]
?? Do you have any suggestions? Seems pretty good to me.

Thank you for subtly reminding that my actual bank is coughing up it's last pennies.

[citation][nom]andrey64[/nom]AMD good luck trying to beat this baby out with your 7990[/citation]

Sure, I don't think AMD is going to beat GTX 690, but I think AMD gonna earn more money with mainstream cards like 7870 and 7850 then nvidia with there highend cards, especally if there the top end card cost 1000$...

And all because there like no competition to AMD with mainstream cards for now.
