quote Volaricabarrra
The GTX 690 is simply too expensive. It is costing $1000 for this card.
Can't that be said about any video card when it launches as "the best of the best," though? Some people who either don't care about the cash or are willing to spend it for a few months of bragging rights are honestly who cards like that are marketed to.

pretty damn spiffy.

and nvidia and their aa... gotta love em.

im excited to see txaa in person, since screenshots dont often do justice (fxaa looks good in zoomed-in pictures, but when you play the game itself w/ fxaa its all blurry )

haha, thanks for the notification. i would have completely missed it!

to be honest, id rather dual 680s. if the 690 is priced at 1000, then two 500 dollar 680s would be better.

Hiigaran's fantasy has finally come true.

Seems too good to be true TBH... I expect Nvidia to have put a catch in somewhere, such as a massive price. How it manages to stay that cool though, even on referecne design which means that when companies start to experiment with cooler layouts, the drop in temp will be even more impressive. Power requirements are too bad either. $1000 is £618, but since that is only about 150 more than what a 680 costs, that is where it seems to good to be true. With it being Britain I'd expect to see another £100-£200 to be added to that.

That LED, whilst having no added functionality to it, makes it look awesome.

EDIT:

As I expected. £809.99, puts it at $1300.
