Nvidia's GeForce GTX 690 Is Its Face-Meltingest Video Card Yet

Be still, my spec-hungry heart. Nvidia’s latest and greatest is a monster in a beautiful body. Dual GPUs, 28nm Kepler architecture, 3072 CUDA parallel processing cores, ARRGH ARRGH ARRRRRGH! This beast basically doubles the performance of the already awesome GTX 680.

But what’s on the outside counts, too. Trivalent chromium-plated aluminium, a new magnesium alloy fan housing, nickel-plated fins, dual vapour chambers, and a fan that spins at 3000rpm. It’s almost a shame to bury something this beautiful deep inside your computer where you can’t see it. Oh, and if you really want to go nuts you can install two GeForce GTX 690s in your PC in Quad SLI Mode, giving you four GPUs working in unison.

The HTX 690 will be available starting May 3 for $US1000. That’s mighty steep, but if you want your head-shots to be more headshottier, this is some serious kit. [Nvidia via PC Mag]
