The EVGA GeForce GTX 690 is NVIDIA’s fastest graphics card ever. It provides truly game-changing performance by combining the groundbreaking new GeForce architectures withdual 1536 NVIDIA CUDA core GPUs (the world's most powerful). That’s 3072 CUDA cores, all working to deliver awesome gaming performance. NVIDIA GPU Boost technology maximizes clock speeds on both GPUs to push performance to new levels. Meticulously designed with robust power delivery and dual vapor chambers for extreme performance and overclocking without sacrificing acoustics. Enable massive firepower with NVIDIA Quad-SLI technology. Change your game.

  • newegg Dual Vapor chambers The dual vapor chambers help lower temperatures by as much as 4 degrees Celsius, keeping your graphics card cool and unleashing the overlocking potential.
  • newegg Kepler GPU Architecture NVIDIA's Kepler GPU architecture has been designed from the ground up not just for maximum performance in the latest DirectX 11 games, but optimal performance per watt. The new SMX streaming multiprocessor is twice as efficient as the prior generation and the new geometry engine draws triangles twice as fast. The result is world class performance and the highest image quality in an elegant and power efficient graphics card.
  • newegg NVIDIA GPU Boost Up until now, GPUs have operated at a fixed clock speed when playing 3D games, even if they have the potential to run faster. GPU Boost intelligently monitors graphics work load and increases the clock speed whenever possible. The result is that the GPU always performs at its peak and you get the highest framerate possible.
  • 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.
  • newegg NVIDIA Surround with Up To Four Monitors Nothing is as breathtaking as playing your favorite games across three monitors. At 5760 x 1080, the expanded field of view fully engages human peripheral vision and provides for the most immersive experience in racing and flight simulators. Add in a fourth display to keep tabs on chat, email or web while you are gaming.
  • 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.

5 out of 5 eggsAfter 3 years still going

Pros: I am totally impressed how this card has stood up the test of time. I play Fallout 4, The Witcher 3 , and at 1440p I am blown away with the frame rates. This card will still put out like a wh0 re in the heat if the night.

Cons: the price of course, but I am happy to be one of the thousand that got a chance to own such beauty. I wished EVGA put a little bit more in the cooling department. This card likes to blow hot air out of the back and I mean hot! Wish there was a back plate.

Other Thoughts: I recently bought a EVGA 980TI Hybrid which happened to cra p out on me (water pump died) within a lil over a week after I bought it. The 690 at the moment is back in slot 1 until my replacement card is here. When the new card gets here, the 690 will still provide gpu processing power for my second monitor and physics while the 980ti hybrid powering my main monitor. Hey why not right? I plan on getting as much use out of this card until she dies!1!!!!!

4 out of 5 eggsFuture Proof?

Pros: This card is that little gem that you can smile about when folks ask what you're running 2-3 years down the road. It's got the oompf to keep up with the newer cards and it's dual GPU is unique (at least for now).

Cons: Price, but I'm gonna call it worth the money. I'd be considering purchasing in a GTX900 series if I were running the GTX 680, but with the 690, I'm good for another generation of cards.

4 out of 5 eggsGTX 690

Pros: 1 year after purchase and this card is still going strong. I will eventually need to upgrade. All games running plenty fast at high resolution.

Cons: I want to upgrade, but there is no real strong option.

5 out of 5 eggsStill rolling.

Pros: This card still rocks. Plays BF4 across 3 monitors on High with vertical sync on. FPS never drops below 60. What more do you want? Temps are always stable at 70C under load.

Cons: Still a $1000 bucks but it is worth every penny. Thought it might come down after the 7 series came down.

Other Thoughts: Been thinking about getting a second card but with these results why should I.

5 out of 5 eggsBest overall dual-gpu-card opton for an m-itx system

Pros: * Still one of the fastest single pcb gpus on the market
* Have had this card for over a year and it has never had any drivers issues or hiccups within games
* Runs reletively cool: 29 to 30 C during idle (both gpus) and 76 to 80 C during full load (unigine heaven 4.0 loop)
* Card only has 2 GB of memory per GPU but I have never run out of it. I run Skyrim with mods at 2560x1440p and the memory is enough.

Cons: * Surprised it's still 1k but I guess it still beats out a new GTX 780 ti in most games (pretty impresive considering it came out April 29th, 2012)
* It's dual gpu which some may claim as a drawback... I've personally never had a sli driver issue on any game (I buy most if not all of the AAA RPGs, FPSs, Racers)

Other Thoughts: I bought my 690 a day after it was released and I can honestly say that 1k was a lot but I feel I got my money's worth out of it. Played many, many games on it on a 2560x1440p monitor and the 690 has always pulled through on absolute max settings or almost max settings.

I felt this card finally deserved a well tested, 5-star review from me but... I would not recommed anyone to by this card anymore. It is over a year old and 1k may have been justifiable a year ago but not now with the possibility of a dual gpu 700 series card in the near future.

Keep in mind all of my review is based on the fact that I have a m-itx system and this is the best solution (7990 is too large and hot), otherwise getting two 780s or 770s would be a better buy.

5 out of 5 eggsGTX 690

Pros: The card is well designed and you cant help but admire it when first taken out of the box. As far as gaming this card has been able to take on all of Them. It Over clocks fairly well but remember not all card will over clock the same some may do better then others but i found no need to do so 95% of the time when putting on V sync. I have had no game crashes what so ever with this card So thats a big plus.

Cons: the price but like some one wrote if you want the best you have to pay. Even tho this card is a beast some games do have a bit of slow downs.

Metro 2033 : setting very high you will average about 80 to 50 fps

Sniper Elite V 2 & Zombie : Setting On Ultra and V sync on when you aim down the sights of your rifle the frames will drop from time to time. And if you have super sampling on 2.5X or 4.0X its even worse. Even over clocked it show very little improvement so its best just not to have super sampling on at all.

Other Thoughts: All in all it is one great card and worth every penny.Im not going to need to upgrade for a long time to come. When i set out to rebuild my gaming pc the GTX 690 was the first thing on my list. One thing that I will say is that it is a very big card and you will need room in your case for good air flow.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Impressive

Pros: Built - This card is well made, craftmanship is top notch very sharp looking, the neon glow of geforce gtx from my case is a fun look as well.

Fast - This card moves, blitzingly so. not really surprising considering its 2 gtx680 cores together, still its hard not to be impressed anyway, it laughs at anything I throw at it.

Cool - It stays surprisingly cool even under load, I keep my fan curve low since it really doesnt heat up much rarely seen it over 55C and thats when playing high end modern titles at max settings, even then fans are chilling at 40% and barely make a sound. count that to the craftsmanship of the card I suppose.

Cons: Power - Be prepared to use all your 8 - 2x6 cables that came with your power supply it takes 2 of these just to power it and cable management is a bit of a task but use the right case and some knowhow and it is still very manageable.

Other Thoughts: Size - This isnt really a con since its 2 cores in one card but is only a half inch longer than a 680, still be prepared its a biggy.

Drivers - Again not really a con, basically dont let old drivers stack up on your system and you will have no problems, when you download the newest driver just do a custom install using nvidia and select clean install at the bottom of the page, this will delete your old drivers before installing the new ones, when you do this it runs like a ferrari. If you fail to do this you may experience some buggy activity from the card, but its an easy thing to do so theres no reason to complain.

5 out of 5 eggsExtremely Nice!

Pros: Very fast card. Have had no issues what so ever running any game. *well minus bugs that are driver related to some games.* Made very well with a nice thick aluminum body and sealed of mostly to prevent dust build up inside the fins.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: You should definitely use the quad 6pin sli power connectors if your running only one card since it will insure that the card has the full power of the power supply as needed.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing GPU

Pros: This card by itself smashes every game I throw at it. I easily break 100FPS in most games, with only Planetside 2 (60-100fps) and Far Cry 3 (60-80fps) dragging me under, yet they still maintain a very playable rate at max settings.

Nvidia's gradually improving SLI profiles and drivers have made this card even better than when I first got it (rougly 6 months ago). The long list of SLI supported games also makes this card very worth it; Planetside 2, Battlefield 3 (soon BF4), World of Warcraft, TERA, TES: Skyrim and anything on the Source engine (HL2, L4D, Chivalry) will run absolutely amazing on this card. Games like SC2 and Diablo 3 can't make full use of this card's capabilities (to be fair WoW can't either, get with the program, BLIZZARD), so if those are your go-to games, look elsewhere, unless you love seeing 200+ FPS on a maxed out game.

Cons: Price point. Every game you can think of can be played with a lower cost card (GTX 680 comes to mind). Bear in mind that you will need to dump at least another $1000-$1500 into other high end hardware to make this card worth it. The price point is even less worth it if your favorite games do not support SLI (most do). But if you play a game that doesn't support SLI, you will not see a performance increase over a GTX 680, at least not one worth another $500-$600.

While these are all cons, I went into this purchase knowing this and it was very worth it, no eggs off for the cons you should be aware of going into a purchase.

Other Thoughts: Strangely, this card performs better with settings maxed out. I tried to squeeze out some frames by turning down/off certain graphics features, but my FPS either stayed the same or went down. So set all your games to MAX and let this baby purr, you won't regret it.

You must look at this as a purchase of TWO cards, and plan accordingly. This one-slot card is seen the same as two cards in separate slots. Due to SLI limitations you cannot put more than 4 GPUs into a system, so do NOT buy more than two cards for a single system. Also, due to scaling and generally poor support for 3 or 4-way SLI, you'd be better off buying 2 GTX Titans if you have your heart set on two physical cards (though a single GTX 690 will out-perform a single GTX Titan in nearly every game).
