The ASUS GeForce GTX 690 graphics card debuts 28nm dual-GPU performance, presenting the most powerful card of the generation thus far. It enables gaming with superior speed, smoothness, and detail. Due to smarter fabrication, its power demands are relatively modest for energy-conservative operation. This promotes easier quad-SLI setups with paired ASUS GeForce GTX 690s. ASUS continues to offer gamers the best overclocking experience with the exclusive GPU Tweak utility, which goes well together with DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.2, plus technologies such as NVIDIA GPU Boost, advanced anti-aliasing (TXAA/FXAA), and Adaptive Vertical Sync.

  • newegg Raw 28nm graphics processing power The ASUS GeForce GTX 690 has two GeForce GTX 680 cores mounted on the board, fielding a massive 3072 CUDA cores and representing truly staggering computing power for graphics as well as parallel processing alongside the CPU. The core runs at 1019MHz in boost clock, while the 512-bit memory interface links the system to 4GB of 4096MHz GDDR5 video memory.
  • newegg Benefits of leaner fabrication come into play Despite all that power, the ASUS GeForce GTX 690 has a modest 300W TDP. Gamers therefore tap greater processing capacity while conserving energy thanks to efficient 28nm manufacturing, thus lowering electricity bills and contributing to more environmentally-responsible gaming.
  • newegg Intuitive graphics controls and tuning with GPU Tweak ASUS once again includes the exclusive GPU Tweak graphics card tuning suite in the box. Overclocking-inclined buyers can easily go into boost clock speeds, set power targets, and configure fan revolution settings to make adjustments and experiment with performance gains. GPU Tweak offers built-in guards to ensure all modifications are safe, maintaining optimal stability and card reliability. The utility also provides a convenient on-screen monitoring widget and live driver/BIOS updates to ensure the ASUS GeForce GTX 690 remains up to date.
  • newegg Moving closer to complete gaming immersion The ASUS GeForce GTX 690 presents the most graphics power ever available to consumers, and as such makes even better use of recent developments in software engineering. It furnishes unmatched DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.2 performance, by that guaranteeing considerable future-proofing. Users who wish to set up an NVIDIA SLI configuration can pair two ASUS GeForce GTX 690’s graphics card for instant quad-SLI and even more massive compute capabilities.
  • newegg Two New Anti-aliasing Modes: FXAA and TXAA Anti-aliasing smoothes out jagged edges but can be demanding on framerates. FXAA is a new antialiasing technology that produces beautiful smooth lines with minimal performance impact. And with Kepler based GPUs, you'll be able to enable FXAA in hundreds of game titles through the NVIDIA Control Panel. The second mode, TXAA, is an in-game option that combines MSAA, temporal filtering, and post processing for even higher visual fidelity.
  • newegg NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync Nothing is more distracting than framerate stuttering and screen tearing. The first tends to occur when framerates are low, the second when framerates are high. Adaptive V-Sync is a smarter way to render frames. At high framerates, V-sync is enabled to eliminate tearing, at low frame rates, it's disabled to minimize stuttering. It gets rid of distractions so you can get on with gaming.

5 out of 5 eggsPricey, but kills all

Pros: Have had this since release ordered through a different website, but felt the need to write a review here since many buyers come to this website. To start, this card is the fastest hands down. Though there have been recent releases like the TITAN that come close to this, none have beaten it yet. This card tears up everything that I test it on. Battlefield 4 runs at full ultra flawlessly, and Metro Last light runs amazingly on it. And just about every other title that you can imagine also runs flawlessly on this 1 thousand dollar beast.

Cons: Though this card runs amazing it comes that way with a price.... A 1 thousand dollar price. I did have some issues with psu cables with this card at first, but after some finagling got them to plug in, I do not see this as a problem but certainly as an annoyance due to the fact that I panic a little bit upon recieving my card when I could not plug it into correctly.

Other Thoughts: This is an amazing card though it is very expensive, I would recommend this if you have the money, but if not maybe a gtx 770, or a 780 ti

5 out of 5 eggsGreat support ASUS

Pros: Works absolutely fantastic. If you want to go SLI then this is the card.
Am running Microsoft FSX and Railworks TrainSimulator 2013 with custom sli settings and work fantastic.
Even if a game isn't sli supported you can set settings in Nvidia Inspector to force them.
Example in Railworks with normal setting it runs
57 FPS with core one at 98% and core two at 0%
with custom settings it runs
118 FPS with both cores at 96%

very quiet card and runs nice and cool. Even turbo boosts rather nicely

Cons: First card failed after one month, no video output on boot. But got to see how good Asus support is. Sent card to Asus USA, they have you send bare card no original box because they say if they repair it or send a refurbished card you won't get a retail box.
After trying to repair they sent me a brand new Retailed box card and I am back up and Running.

So 5 stars to ASUS support

Other Thoughts: Really like this card, wish it would have had a back plate but otherwise is nice is only a two slot card.
My Asus ROG GTX 580 it replaced was a 3 slot card.
If I had to do all over again would purchase again.
I am gaming on a single monitor, Korean Crossover 2560x1440 display with a 1920x1200 second display but I don't dual monitor game. Use the second monitor for other during gaming or non 3d map display for FSX
If you are gaming on a single monitor with at least 2560x1440 then get this card.
Multi monitor gaming hi resolution get the Titan.
Single Monitor 1920x1080 get a GTX 670 or 680 or Radeon 7970

4 out of 5 eggsLove the card, hate the drivers

Pros: It does everything people say on here, and then some more.

Cons: Driver stability. Nvida seems to be releasing new revs to the driver on a nightly basis and was dumb enough to keep updating, till I got to a point that I would get random BSOD when playing a game or watching a movie.
Re-installed Windows 8, never updated beyond the WHQL driver that MS installs and it has never crashed since.

Other Thoughts: I have to knock an egg off till Nvidia get's their act together and stabilizes the reference drivers. I am sure as hell not going to put any Asus ware on my build.

5 out of 5 eggsBeast in need of ROG title

Pros: - A card that can handle anything thrown at it.
- The Asus OC program (not that you need to OC) is very simple and easy to use.
- The coolant system is well made and the LED lights on the side add a nice aesthetic.
- 2 cards on one board.
- Power efficient.

Cons: - I would say price, but if you're looking to buy one of these then you have the money. Otherwise, be on your way.

- Minimal instruction guide, not needed though if this isn't you're 1st card.

Other Thoughts: Amazing card, Getting an Asus cross-hair formula z soon to compliment it.
Do wish it had an ROG titles as the the ares, minus the water-cooler. That's just something small though :D

5 out of 5 eggsWholy Batman!!!!!

Pros: Amazing, Beasts through all my games on full settings: Metro 2033, Starcraft II, Dead Space 3, ect... Just an amazing card. I like the whole 2 gpu in one card thing. It runs like a beast, looks like a beast, and even smells like a beast :) Buy this Card!!!!!

Cons: $1000, when I bought it it was $1,029, but it was worth it than buying a gtx 680

5 out of 5 eggsGtx 690 Wow

Pros: Great upgrade from a 580, Able to force SLI in FSX and Rail Simulator will try with BF 3 later. Overclocks itself great and runs fantastic. At first wished it had a backplate but the black color matches my motherboard.
Underclocks both cores to 324mhz when idle and cools down great. Same acoustics as my Asus 580 and only takes 2 slots instead of 3
Fantastic card and purchased over the Titan as I game on a 2560x1440 monitor with a side monitor of 1920x1200 so not doing surround gaming

Cons: Was a little hard getting multi-gpu, multi monitor working but finally got it going, Wished the very minimal instructions showed which dvi slots to plug in 2 monitors.
Does heat up and really utilize the 2 cores so manually turn your fan speed up before starting a game.
High in price but with two 680's under the hood expecting this gpu to last me a few years.

Other Thoughts: to those who knocked off eggs because has an ATI branded hdmi connector, WHO CARES? I don't stare at the connectors on the back and it doesn't matter what is stamped on it. Get over it
Coupled with a 2600k at 4.7ghz gaming is going to be fun.
Use Nvidia inspector to adjust your settings and yes you can force sli in games that don't support it like FSX
Now back to gaming
