Posted By: Dennis - Source: Email
"It" has arrived. This past weekend nVidia announced the new flagship GeForce product based on Keplier called the GTX 690. As the name indicates this is a dual gpu single board design using a PLX bridge chip and two GTX 680 GPUs.
On the surface it looks like the GTX 590 but the fan shroud has been completely redesigned and is poised to be the most powerful single card video solution ever made.
Well, folks, the mysterious "it" is finally here. Today at the GeForce LAN and Nvidia Gaming Festival event in Shanghai, China, Nvidia pulled the curtains back on what should be the fastest graphics card the world has seen to date. The GeForce GTX 690 will feature dual GK104 chips, just like those used in the GeForce GTX 680. Two of them together on a single card will team up to deliver roughly twice the theoretical peak performance of a single GTX 680.
