A quick links dump of GTX 690 reviews.

An exceptional card. Seems to match GTX 680 SLI while running as cool, using less power and quieter than the single card. The fact that it also trade blows with HD 7970 CrossfireX in overall performance, while beating it in temps, noise and power usage means AMD might be burning the midnight oil speccing out the HD 7990.
With that kind of scaling, I'd like to see the 670 and 660Ti get the same duallie treatment. Pity it won't happen.
Seriously think I would trade my 680s in for one of these babies... if I could feel completely safe about the trade. The 690 looks like an amazing card and it addresses one of my peeves about the high end card - why does the casing always feel so cheap?
I'd think you would get the retail price back (and possibly more) on the 680's judging by the lack of supply. Your Asus cards' warranty is valid worldwide based on serial # -so nothing stopping you making out like a bandit on eBay! The only problem might be sourcing the 690 -looks like the scalpers are out in force
Yep - that's my biggest fear. I'm fairly certain I can sell my 680s individually for at least what I paid, but I will probably have a pretty difficult time getting a 690.
