About this Product

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 is able to perform nearly 2x faster than the single GPU based GTX 680. The GTX 690 utilizes binned graphics processors that were handpicked for their low leakage and power efficiency. Essentially, this means Nvidia has selected the best of the best graphics processors, which allowed them to keep the base and boost clock at 915MHz and 1019MHz respectively. In addition the GTX 690 has dual Kepler cores that internally feature 3072 CUDA cores, 64 ROPs, 128 Texture units and a 4GB GDDR5 frame buffer running on a 512-bit interface. So, Nvidia didn’t scale anything back, as the GTX 690 packs in two full GK-104 graphics processors.
