The first attendees arrive as we finish setting up the room... Here I am, answering questions and explaining the purpose of what we're trying to do at the event. A local redditor sits down to Grid 2 for A-B testing. More blind...

First of all, we must remind you that the current prices of the three premium graphics solutions available today – AMD Radeon HD 7990, Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 and Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan – are comparable. Each costs about $1000. That’s quite a lot of...

NVIDIA has done a great job with Kepler, no doubts about that. The fact that a relatively small chip which doesn’t require a lot of energy contains blazing performance was about as good as it gets, as basis for a dual-GPU solution. Furthermore, this...

Despite being built with notebooks in mind, Nvidia's new Kepler architecture has done wonders for desktop graphics cards. With its meagre energy needs and high performance, gamers have been blessed with a powerful product that doesn't sound like a...

Two GeForce GTX 690s with their four Nvidia GK104 GPUs in one system, does it make any sense? Yes, but probably only for a niche market. With a single GeForce GTX 690 (or two GeForce GTX 680s) you have enough 3D power to run all games in 5760x1080...

Combined into a 4-way SLI configuration, two Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 cards are indeed overkill for ordinary users who play their games on a single monitor, even a high-resolution one. Well, we couldn't have any doubts about that really. The more...

With the GeForce GTX 690, Nvidia has put a technological beast in its shop window that will get the pulses racing even if it doesn't stand up all that well to rational judgement. As is often the case in the ultra high-end segment, and even more so in...

Nvidia claimed the GTX 690 would deliver the performance of two GTX 680s and, for once, a manufacturer's boasts weren't entirely made of hot air. Our benchmark results demonstrate that the GTX 690 is the fastest graphics card on the planet, easily...

This is an exceptional graphics card, boasting ultra-high performances, excellent build quality, a top-end finish and ... an eye-watering price tag! It's clearly not the kind of graphics card that's within everyone's reach, but for a handful of lucky...

Nvidia started building hype for the GTX 690 a few weeks ago, first posting some abstract shots of the video card, shrouded by shadow on their Facebook feed. Later to release a couple of high-res shots, and following it all up today with two high-res...

We already know that Nvidia's GeForce GTX 690 sports two GK104s and is priced at $1000. But hardware like this is fun to read about. Oh, you actually want to buy one? Expect performance just shy of two GTX 680s in SLI, and good luck tracking one down!...

NVIDIA’s goal for the GTX 690 was to make the fastest graphics card of all time and they’ve succeeded beyond most people’s expectations. After the experience with Fermi and G80 before it, many predicted this round of GeForce products would be more of...

To say that I was impressed with what the GTX 690 has to offer would be an understatement. In the past NVIDIA has delivered excellent gaming performance when they dropped a dual GPU card on the market such as the 9800GX2, GTX 295, and the GTX 590....

The GTX 680 was the fastest single GPU card when it was launched a few weeks ago. We were quite impressed with what NVIDIA achieved with the card’s power consumption, heat output, and the performance. With the GTX 690, NVIDIA has raised the...

Have a peek at the awesomeness that is the GeForce GTX 690, and then head on over to the next page where as always, we'll go a little deeper, but not too deep. We'll look at noise levels, power consumption, heat, we'll do a nice photo-shoot and an...
